All Day

Holy Saturday

April 3

Holy Saturday commemorates the day the Jesus' body lay in the tomb. The only biblical reference to what happened on Holy Saturday is found in Matthew 27: 62-66, when the chief priests and Pharisees visited Pontius Pilate and asked for a guard for Jesus' tomb: The Guard at the Tomb 62 The next day, that is, after the day of Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate 63 and said, “Sir, we remember what that impostor said while he was still alive, ‘After three days I will rise again.’ 64 Therefore command the tomb to be made secure until the third day; otherwise his disciples may go and steal him away, and tell the people, ‘He has been raised from the dead,’ and the last deception would be worse than the first.” 65 Pilate said to them, “You have a guard of soldiers; go, make it as secure as you can.” 66 So they went with the guard and made the tomb secure by sealing the stone.
