Jesus Christ is Honorably Laid to Rest

Bible Text: Matthew 27:57-61 | Preacher: Rev. Christopher Folkerts | Series: Exposition of Matthew

The honorable burial of Jesus Christ testifies to the accomplishment and vindication of his redemption and quietly announces the grace of God for sinners.

The man who laid his Lord to rest
