Daniel 6:16-17

I just read this and though of the parallell between Daniel and Christ here, in terms of the stone being rolled over the den/tomb.

"So the king gave the order, and they brought Daniel and threw him into the lions’ den. The king said to Daniel, “May your God, whom you serve continually, rescue you!”
A stone was brought and placed over the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the rings of his nobles, so that Daniel’s situation might not be changed."

Compared to Matthew 27:60
"...and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away."

Likewise both "rose" again - Daniel metaphorically because he did not die, and Christ literally because he did die but rose again.

I love seeing Christ in the Old Testament. He's everywhere!
