Day 6: Oil and Spices

00:00

Description

The number of spices brought to embalm Jesus is generous and abundant -- on par with royal burials.

The amount of spices brought to embalm Jesus is generous and abundant - on par with royal burials. This was a lavish display of affection and respect. Though we have already seen how Jesus was maliciously and cruelly treated before and during His crucifixion, after His death His body was cared for in a royal fashion, pointing toward His role as our King.

Nicodemus, who had first come to Him by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds weight. So they took the body of Jesus and bound it in linen wrappings with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews.

-John 19:39-40
