At the Tomb of Jesus
On Saturday, the Sabbath, Jesus' body lay in the tomb where it was guarded by Roman soldiers.

When the Sabbath ended at sundown, Christ's body was ceremonially treated for burial with spices.

It may seem as though very little happened on this day, but Saturday marked an all-important turning point in history. Consider how this day changed the fate of every person—past, present, and future—who has put their faith in the Messiah, Jesus Christ:
