Imagine if you can, removing the Savior's body from the cross? The terrible heartache and sense of loss would have been devastating.
With all the courage they could draw up, they took His body and placed it in a tomb. The scriptures are mostly silent about this time. It had to be one of the hardest things His followers were asked to do.
I’m sure many of them spent the day reflecting on everything that had taken place. I know they had to have questions. Some might have even been angry. They just didn’t and couldn’t understand.
They believed it was totally and completely over. It had to be heartbreaking. Something great was about to happen, and His followers had no idea.
It’s up to each of us to reflect on the Savior this day. We should reflect on what He did and why He did everything so willingly.
