Jesus Is Buried - late evening

Mark 15:42-47 It was now the evening before the Sabbath, and the Jewish people were getting ready for that sacred day. A man named Joseph from Arimathea was brave enough to ask Pilate for the body of Jesus. Joseph was a highly respected member of the Jewish council, and he was also waiting for God’s kingdom to come. Pilate was surprised to hear that Jesus was already dead, and he called in the army officer to find out if Jesus had been dead very long. After the officer told him, Pilate let Joseph have Jesus' body. Joseph bought a linen cloth and took the body down from the cross. He had it wrapped in the cloth, and he put it in a tomb that had been cut into solid rock. Then he rolled a big stone against the entrance to the tomb. Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joseph were watching and saw where the body was placed.

Good Friday

Mark 15:25-26, 33-34, 37-39 His crucifixion began about nine o’clock in the morning.  Over His head hung a sign that indicated the charge for which He was being crucified. It read, “THE KING OF THE JEWS.” At noon, the day suddenly darkened for three hours across the entire land.  Sometime around three o’clock Jesus called out in a loud voice.Jesus: Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?Jesus was speaking, as in the psalms, “My God, My God, why have You turned Your back on Me?”  Then Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and He took His last breath.  At that moment, the curtain in the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.  When the officer who stood facing Jesus saw how he gave up his spirit, he said, “Certainly, this man was the Son of God!”  Good Friday
