Having considered the final hours of Christ’s humiliation in the two preceding sermons on these verses (His being delivered up and His dying), we now come to consider the last step in His humiliation, namely, His being buried. We ask two simple questions: 1) why was Christ buried? and 2) what circumstances accompanied His burial? With these two answered, we move to consider three comforts which we can draw from Christ’s burial. May God bless His Word to you. ––Be sure to look for the final part in this series, Part 4, in which we will consider Christ’s resurrection.
