On the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment. Luke 22:56b
Not much is written about what went on the Saturday after Jesus’ crucifixion. Matthew has five verses, Matthew 27:62-66, telling us that the Jewish priests were worried that the disciples would try to steal Jesus’ body so they went to Pilate to secure a guard for the tomb. But as the what Jesus’ followers were doing that Saturday we have only a partial verse from Luke and he only mentions what the women did. For the disciples all we can do is speculate. But in all likelihood they were in hiding.
These men who had followed Jesus for three years were scared. They had seen their leader put to death by the Romans and were most likely thinking they were next. The man they had put so much hope in was dead. They just could not get their minds around the death of the one they though was the Messiah. How could God’s anointed one be dead? So they hid.
Jesus was in the grave and it looked like Satan had won. There must have been much revelry in the realm of the demons. However that revelry would be short lived. The next day would change everything.
Have a blessed day,
