Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” … But He was speaking of the temple of His body. Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.
– John 2:19, 21-22
Some prophesies are unclear until they are fulfilled. “When He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this.” The word “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up” was confusing when Jesus said it. It only really made sense after the resurrection.
