A Saturday of Confusion

We often focus mainly on Friday and Sunday of this week – His death and His resurrection – but let’s not forget about Saturday.

Jesus previously told his disciples that He would be killed and would rise from the dead three days later.

Friday comes and goes.

Now, it’s Saturday.

Jesus is dead.
He is in the grave.

Can you imagine what the disciples are feeling at this point?

The disciples are probably really confused.
They are hurt.
They are doubting.
Their minds are in a fog.

Everything they had left their life for is now gone.

They don’t remember what He told them until the next day when He explains it to them.
They fled when these events started happening the day before.
They had expected Jesus to reign as king.

But He’s in the grave.
He’s dead.
No activity.
No words.
No miracles.
No anything.

It is a day of darkness for them.
They are sitting around waiting.

What will happen next?

And then…
Sunday comes.

The grave is empty!
Jesus is risen!
Jesus appears to them!

What Jesus had told them had actually come to pass.
