Lesson text: Mark 15:33-47
After three hours of darkness in the middle of the day, Jesus dies on the cross. At the end He is still much stronger than the usual crucifixion victim. Watching all this transpire, the centurion in charge is moved by Jesus’ manner of death. Joseph of Arimathea asks for Jesus’ body so that He may be buried. Pilate is surprised by how quickly Jesus has died, but he approves the release. The women from Galilee who have followed and supported Jesus throughout His ministry have witnessed His death and burial.
