One Hundred

on April 7, 2018

The number of pounds of spices put on the linen cloths that were wrapped around Jesus’ body after he died.

“Nicodemus, who earlier had come to Jesus by night, came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds in weight. So they took the body of Jesus and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews” (John 19:39–40 (NKJV)).

Some people say Jesus didn’t really rise from the dead—he just fainted and later woke up, removed the grave clothes, and left the tomb. However, he would not have been able to unwrap the heavy cloths by himself in such a weakened state. We know from reading the Bible that Jesus really died and really rose again by the power of God. He is alive today!
