What happened on Holy Saturday?

  • Here on earth, Jesus’ disciples mourned his death and, since it was a sabbath day, they rested.
  • Luke notes that the women returned home “and prepared spices and ointments. On the sabbath they rested according to the commandment” (Luke 23:56).
  • At the tomb, the guards that had been stationed there kept watch over the place to make sure that the disciples did not steal Jesus’ body.
