John: Crucified, Dead, & Buried

In the days of the New Testament, Jews would refer to Fridays as their “Day of Preparation.” Each week, as Friday arrived and the Sabbath (Saturday) was looming, Jews would prepare in certain ways to make sure they were ready for that weekly day of rest and worship. The Friday of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial were no exception. In fact, as we look at John 19:31-42 together, we’ll see John refer to that day not as “Good Friday,” but as the “Day of Preparation.” We’ll read about the burial of Christ, how Sabbath preparations impacted the handling of His body and helped to set the stage for the resurrection that would take place on the other side of the Sabbath. Hope you can join us!
