Joseph took the body, wrapped it in clean linen cloth,and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock.

I wonder what Joseph was thinking as he cut his own new tomb out of the rock.  This was obviously done way before Jesus’ crucifixion.  I wonder what thoughts crossed Joseph’s mind as he took all that time creating this tomb. This tomb that would hold his own dead body.   Did he believe in the promised Messiah?  Did he know and believe the promise of eternal life as he carefully created this place for death?   What can the fact that this was a borrowed tomb for Jesus’ body tell us?  It was only temporary!

Joseph wrapped Jesus’ body in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid.

A virgin tomb for my Groom.  A new cave He was laid.  Death seemed cold, and so bold, just think, to Death Life linked.  But my Groom in this gloom, had a date.  It was fate.  With desperate grasping hate Death suppressed his Holy Guest, but could not keep Him in His sleep.  To be cont’d…

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
