Read: Job 10:21; Mark 15:44-45; Romans 6:4
What is burial likened to in Job? Why do you think it is important that Jesus was buried? As a condemned prisoner, Jesus had no right to be properly buried, but could have been thrown over the wall into the perennial burning of refuse. Where was He buried? Joseph was a wealthy landowner, so this was not an insignificant burial spot. What does that suggest about God’s relationship with His son? According to Romans 6:4, how are we linked to Christ in burial? Today, thank God for setting the course for the burial of your sins so that you can be raised without sin to new life.
