In the Heart of the Earth


We often race from Christ’s death on Good Friday directly to the empty tomb on Easter Sunday. But in between these two events was another key moment — the burial of Jesus Christ.

The burial of Jesus is so central to our Christian hope that Paul includes it in his summary of the gospel: “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

Why is the burial of Jesus so significant? And what relevance does it have for us today? This morning, we looked at Mark 15 and its parallel in John 19 to answer these questions.
