Thematic Bible: Grave-clothes


Thematic Bible



The dead man came out bound hand and foot with linen strips and with his face wrapped in a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Loose him and let him go."

Then they took Jesus' body and wrapped it in linen cloths with the aromatic spices, according to the burial custom of the Jews.

So Joseph took the body, wrapped it in clean, fine linen,

The wrapping that had been on His head was not lying with the linen cloths but was folded up in a separate place by itself.

The young men got up, wrapped [his body], carried him out, and buried him.
