Burial of Jesus

Scripture: Matthew 27:57-66, Mark 15:42-47, Luke 23:50-56, John 19:38-42

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will learn two of the Pharisees believed in Jesus and helped bury him. (Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea)
  • Students will learn Jesus was definitely dead after the crucifixion.
  • Students will learn Roman soldiers guarded the tomb so no one could steal the body of Jesus.

Interesting Facts:

  • Normally the bodies of those who were crucified were thrown into a field or buried in a pauper’s grave. To be given a new tomb of someone who was a Jewish leader would have been very unusual.
  • The traditional site of the crucifixion is not where the writers of the Bible describe. It most likely was another site misidentified to the mother of Emperor Constantine.
