Jesus Is Crucified, Mummified And Resurrected.

Jesus being mummified.

By: Bill and Teddy Rogers

John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”


After His crucifixion and death on the cross, Jesus was taken down and His bruised and bloody body cleaned as much as possible. Then, Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus placed Jesus in the borrowed tomb. They wrapped His feet, legs, arms and torso with two inch strips of cloth. (everything but His head).

They used 100 pounds of myrrh and aloes (a liquid oil) to saturate every inch of the cloth strips. When this liquid dried, it formed a very hard shell in the perfect shape of Jesus' body (See John 19:39).

Note: The Israelis learned this mummification process from the Egyptians during their 400 plus years of captivity in Egypt.

In accordance with Jewish burial customs, they laid a burial cloth over Jesus' head.

When they had finished, they had a very large round stone rolled over the entrance of the tomb to seal it.


Jesus lay in the borrowed tomb for three days and three nights. Sometime after sunset on Saturday and before sunrise on Sunday, the Holy Spirit raised Jesus from the dead.


Very early on Sunday morning, just after sunrise, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome went to the tomb so that they might anoint Jesus’ body. When they got there, they saw an opened tomb and an angel who told them that Jesus was no longer there and had risen.

Next, they saw the risen Jesus who told them to go and tell His disciples to meet Him in Galilee.

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.


As soon as they heard that Jesus had risen, Peter and John ran to the tomb. When they got there and went into the tomb, they saw the untouched hardened Myrrh and Aloe covered shell that was empty and the neatly folded head cloth laid on the bench. For the first time, they understood that Jesus had actually risen from the dead just as He told them He would.

For all the details, read Mathew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24 and John 20.


The resurrection of Jesus Christ was the beginning of Christianity. If Christ had not been resurrected, Christianity would not exist today and we would have No Hope” of having our sins forgiven, of being saved, or of spending eternity in Heaven.

1 Corinthians 15:17-20 saysAnd if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.”

Hallelujah – Jesus Is Alive And Well And We Can Be Saved If We Choose To!


John 14:6 says “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.’”

For you to spend eternity in Heaven, you must choose to accept Jesus as your savior and make Him Lord of your life. There is no other way!

If you have not done this yet but would like to, say the following prayer. Believe it with all of your heart and mean it from your soul. If you do this, you will be saved (born again) and Heaven will be your eternal home.

Dear God in Heaven – I come to you in the name of Jesus. I ask that you forgive me of all my sins. Cleanse me with your precious blood from all unrighteousness. With my mouth, I confess the Lord Jesus. In my heart, I believe that you raised Him from the dead and He is alive. This very moment, I accept Jesus Christ as the savior of my soul and I make Him Lord of my Life. And according to your Word, which cannot lie, I’m washed, I’m cleansed, I’m forgiven, I’m saved. Praise God – Hallelujah – Amen!
