A common misconception is that Jesus should have been resurrected on the first day of the week (Sunday).
It is in no place written that way.
Just that on the first of the week the grave was found to be empty.
So the "three days and three nights", or the "after three days", or the "on the third day" might allude to something else.
I do want to contend that it alludes to the third day of creation, the day of the double "ki-tov", the two times "and God saw that it was good", where the "tov" in Genesis 1:12 is the 153rd word from the beginning.
The first "tov" in the Bible is to be found in Genesis 1:4, "and God saw the light that it was good", the light that was obscured because of Adam's sin.
