When, though, he was raised up from the dead, his dis­ciples called to mind that he used to say this, and they believed the Scripture and the saying that Jesus said. (John 2:22)

God raised Jesus:

Acts 2:32 This Jesus God resurrected, of which fact we are all witnesses.

Acts 13:30 But God raised him up from the dead.

The Father raised Jesus:

Romans 6:40 Therefore, we were buried with him through our baptism into his death, in order that, just as Christ was raised up from the dead through the glory of the Father, we also should likewise walk in a newness of life.
 
Ephesians 1:17-20 and what the surpassing greatness of his power is toward us believers. It is according to the operation of the mightiness of his strength, with which he has operated in the case of the Christ when he raised him up from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places.

The Son raised Himself:

John 2:19-21 In answer Jesus said to them: “Break down this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” There­fore the Jews said: “This temple was built in 46 years, and will you raise it up in three days?” But he was talk­ing about the temple of his body.

John 10:17-18 This is why the Father loves me, because I surrender my soul, in order that I may receive it again. No man has taken it away from me, but I surrender it of my own initiative. I have authority to surrender it, and I have authority to receive it again …

The Holy Spirit raised Jesus:

Romans 1:4 but who with power was declared God’s Son according to the spirit of holiness by means of resurrec­tion from the dead – yes, Jesus Christ our Lord,Ω
