Kanaan Message for Today

Jesus' Burial
 

Easter Saturday

 

As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away. Matthew 27:57-59

 
Now ends the Passion Way at last,
The long dark nicht of grief is past.
After Christ’s suffering, bitter pain
There dawns the peace of sabbath day.
 
The strife is o’er, the battle won.
What fruit and glory now shall come!
The cross and bitter shame are past
and Jesus enters sabbath rest.
