The Jesus Tree–Day Forty-Six

Today’s readings focused on the accounts of the burial of Jesus, found in all four Gospels: Matthew 27:57-61; Mark 23:50-56; Luke 23:50-56; and John 19:38-42. I also added Matthew 27:62-66, which details how the chief priests and Pharisees went to Pilate to ask for a guard to be placed at the tomb. This is the only passage in Scripture that occurs on Holy Saturday, and even though it’s not directly part of the burial story, I felt that it was important to include it since today is Holy Saturday.
