Now there was a good and righteous man named Joseph, who, though a member of the council, had not agreed to their plan and action. He came from the Jewish town of Arimathea, and he was waiting expectantly for the kingdom of God. This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then he took it down, wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid it in a rock-hewn tomb where no one had ever been laid. It was the day of Preparation, and the sabbath was beginning. The women who had come with him from Galilee followed, and they saw the tomb and how his body was laid. Then they returned, and prepared spices and ointments. On the sabbath they rested according to the commandment. (Luke 23:50-56, NRSV)
Jesus was taken down from the cross and laid in a tomb hewn from rock that had never been used. The woman saw where He was and went to prepare spices and ointments. But they did not prepare His body with them, as the Sabbath was starting and because of the commandment they did not return to the body. They would wait.
Jesus was taken down and laid in the tomb and the women saw where and how He was laid.
You see if Mary had not anointed Him, He would not have been anointed!
Are we preparing for what God is calling us to?
