34 Hours Inside Jesus’s Tomb

After being wrapped from his feet to his neck in layers of linen interspersed with 72 pounds of myrrh and aloes, Jesus’s battered, lifeless body is lovingly placed onto a two-foot-wide shelf chiseled into one of the stone walls of Joseph’s elaborate tomb.[1] A “sudarion” or handkerchief sized cloth, is placed over the Lord’s face.[2] (John 20:7)

Thank you Kim for this realism writing. Beautifully written to the point that I was right there at each moment.


Beautifully written.


This is quite a Gothic portrayal of the three days in the tomb. I don’t think that we know what occurred during that time. Consider the texts below.

“Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.” Acts 2:27

Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption. Acts 13:35-37
