The Saturday Before

One can only imagine what the followers of Jesus Christ were feeling on this their Sabbath day--the day after the crucifixion of their Lord. Promises had been made, some they understood and some they didn't, but would the promises come to pass now that Jesus was dead?

It must have been a bleak day for them, but oh what surprises and joy lay ahead.

I've always imagined that it was so dark and painful, but they had that glimmer of hope and faith that what He said would truly come to pass. To find a few days later that He had spoken the Truth must have been glorious and joyful. I think it is important to reflect on their emotions as well as the circumstances of that time, because I think it lets us relate better and comforts us in our own bleak times.
