Crucifixion on Friday, resurrection on Sunday…but can you imagine what Saturday might have been like? The One who came as the Jewish Messiah was now lying lifeless in a tomb. The heartbreak, the disappointment, the perceived betrayal…hopes dashed and minds bewildered. And all this on the Jewish Sabbath. But there is more we need to understand about that day!
Therefore, we turn again to Dr Bill Barrick (Board Chairman for Canyon Ministries) to walk us through that confusing day. (Previous days’ devotionals are found here: Palm Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.)
