Jesus' Body Rests in the Tomb on the Sabbath
Jesus' body rest in the tomb on the Sabbath and Jewish leaders demand that guards be posted at the tomb.
The next day, that is, after the day of Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate and said, "Sir, we remember how that impostor said, while he was still alive, "After three days I will rise." Therefore order the tomb to be made secure until the third day, lest his disciples go and steal him away and tell the people, 'He has risen from the dead,' and the last fraud will be worse than the first. Pilate said to them, "You have a guard of soldiers. Go, make it as secure as you can. So they went and made the tomb secure by sealing the stone and setting a guard. (Matthew 27:62-66 ESV)
Jesus would not stay in the tomb! For tomorrow will be Resurrection Day! He said, "After three days I will rise", and Jesus will keep his word!
