Al-Wahb on Jesus: Jesus was made to die for three days, then he was resurrected, then he ascended to heaven

Ibn Kathir reported: Concerning the verse, “O Jesus, verily, I will take you and raise you to Myself and purify you from those who disbelieve…” (3:55) Ibn Abbas said, “I will take you,” means, “I will make you to die.” Wahb said, “Allah made him die for three days, then He resurrected him, then He ascended him.”

قال الله تعالى إِذْ قَالَ اللَّهُ يَا عِيسَىٰ إِنِّي مُتَوَفِّيكَ وَرَافِعُكَ إِلَيَّ وَمُطَهِّرُكَ مِنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا

عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ إِنِّي مُتَوَفِّيكَ أَيْ مُمِيتُكَ

عَنْ وَهْبٍ أَمَاتَهُ اللَّهُ ثَلَاثَةَ أَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ بَعَثَهُ ثُمَّ رَفَعَهُ

3:55 التفسير ابن كثير
