Jesus was buried in a borrowed tomb.
He had planned ahead for the entrance into Jerusalem.
He had pre-arranged details for the Last Supper.
He knew everything that was going to happen to Him.
But He hadn’t prepared for His burial,
so Christ was laid in a borrowed grave.
Borrow: to obtain or receive something on loan for temporary use, intending to give it back.
Jesus didn’t need a permanent grave.
He just needed to borrow one for a few days.
Joseph of Arimathea would get his tomb back because
Jesus had no intention of staying there for very long.
It would be a brief stopover.
When I die, tell everyone that I’m just borrowing that grave, because I’m going to be giving it back. On the day the angel shouts and the trumpet sounds, I’ll be among those rising up. Ain’t no grave gonna hold me down.
“We know that God, who raised the Lord Jesus, will also raise us.”
2 Cor. 4:14
“Because I live, you also will live.”
“Ain’t No Grave” by David Crowder
You have such a great insight. Thanks for pointing out that Jesus knew all things and was completely following Their Plan. What a promise for those of us who believe.
Happy Easter Indeed!
