Significant Places: The Tomb
Mark 15:46

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“Joseph bought a linen cloth, took Him down, wrapped Him in the linen cloth and laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb.” Mark 15:46 NASB

Joseph of Arimathea was a rich man and member of the governing council. He owned a new tomb carved out of the rock located in a garden not far from where Jesus was crucified. A traditional cave-like tomb would have a small opening with a big stone that was rolled to close off the opening. The interior of the tomb would be one or more chambers where the body was laid on a rock shelf. Joseph took Jesus’ body down off the cross, wrapped Him in linen, laid Him in the tomb, and closed the opening with the stone.

Lord Jesus, the solemn burial of Your crucified body reminds me of the great price You paid to be my Savior and Redeemer.
