The disciples are gathered in a locked room wondering what to do next; asking
questions; and no doubt recounting their days together with their great friend.
Meanwhile, the church officials who didn't believe in Jesus, were concerned about what might happen next.
The next day, on the Sabbath, the leading priests and Pharisees went to see Pilate.They told him, “Sir, we remember what that deceiver once said while he was still alive: ‘After three days I will rise from the dead.’So we request that you seal the tomb until the third day. This will prevent his disciples from coming and stealing his body and then telling everyone he was raised from the dead! If that happens, we’ll be worse off than we were at first.”
Pilate replied, “Take guards and secure it the best you can.”So they sealed the tomb and posted guards to protect it.
Matthew 27: 62-66
Worry, wonder, and sorrow flowed. Some of the women closest to Jesus during His ministry did the one thing they could do.
Saturday evening, when the Sabbath ended, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome went out and purchased burial spices so they could anoint Jesus’ body.
