The Passion of the Christ Day Seven: Saturday

Rev. Hillary Dawes, PhD, SC-C

"And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
 ~Revelation 14:13

...And rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
~Luke 23:56

Now ... the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate, Saying,  

"Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again. Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first."

Pilate said unto them, "Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can."

So they went, and made the sepulchre sure sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
~Matthew 27:62-66
