Holy Saturday is part of Holy Week. Which also includes Maundy Thursday.

There are three important parts of Easter …

Death, Burial and Resurrection!

The Death of Jesus Christ was Good Friday. His burial is Holy Saturday. Which this blog post will discuss. Then, his Resurrection is Sunday, known as Easter.

His Burial

Joseph of Arimathea asked for the body of Jesus Christ do give a proper burial from Pilate. Jesus was buried in a rich mans grave. You can read about the burial in the four gospels: Matthew 27:57-61, Mark 15:42-47, Luke 23:50-56 and John 19:38-42.

We cannot forget the tomb of Jesus was heavily guarded. A giant stone was rolled in front of the grave. One that would require tons of man power to move. Plus, it had a seal over it to show if it was moved or not.

    The Red & Black Ant Analogy — Understanding the True Enemy — In the natural world, there’s a fascinating phenomenon involving ants. If you place 100 black ants and 100 red ants in a jar, they coexist peacefully. However, if the jar is shaken, chaos ensues. The ants, now agitated, begin to attack each other, perceiving their fellow jar-mates as the enemy. This behavior provides a poignant metaphor for human society, where often the true adversary is not the one who appears different from us, but rather the one who incites division.
