The Funeralof Jesus lg

It was preparation day, that is the day before the Sabbath. So as evening approached Joseph of Armemathea, a prominent member of the Council, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, went boldly to Pilate, and asked for Jesus's body. Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead. People were crucified, could live at least 24 hours, sometimes into the next day. So Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead. And so summoning the centurion, he asked him if Jesus had already died. And when he learned from the century that it was, so he gave the body to Joseph. So Joseph bought some linen cloth, took down the body, wrapped it in the linen, and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock, then he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb, Mary Magdalene, and Mary, the mother of Joseph saw, where he was laid.

— Mark 15:42

If we've left the country where sin is sovereign sin is in charge. How can we still live in our old house there? What didn't you realise we packed up and left there for good.

— Romans 6
