*g*: The Entombment of Christ

We read in Gen. xxxvii. 24, that when the brothers of Joseph wished to sell him to the Ishmaelites, they stripped him of his coat, and threw him into an old pit. This Joseph is a type of Christ, who was thrown into a pit--that is, the tomb--when His friends took Him from the cross and laid Him in it

We read in the book of Jonah, chapter ii., that when Jonah himself took ship to go to a place called Tharys, a great storm arose on the sea, and those who were in the ship cast lots among themselves; and the lot fell upon Jonah, whom they seized and threw into the sea; and a mighty fish straightway swallowed him, in whose belly he was three days and three nights. Jonah typiíies Christ, who was three days and three nights in the belly of the earth
Ps. lxxviii. 65 The Lord awaketh as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine Song of Solomon v. 2 I sleep, but my heart waketh
