words comprise that idiom.

I must disagree with you. The Lord told
EVERYONE he would be dead and buried for 3 days and 3 nights then rise again
thus fulfilling that prophecy himself. In fact he and others were seen for a
few weeks after before going home. there was no secret. The 2 witnesses are
not part of that no where does it indicate that they have any part of that
prophecy or that they will spend anytime in the belly of the earth there is no
need or purpose for them to do so.
The rumor that his disciples
stole his body from the tomb was started because they did not want people to
believe that he rose from the dead. It wasn't started by him or his Disciples
to hide the fact he did rise.

is not the lords Day it is the church’s day (Church made Sunday some kind of
holy day) Sunday was/is the first day of the week.
