INTRODUCTION: Today, the Church celebrates the resurrection from the death of our
Lord Jesus Christ. Like all humans, He actually died, having on His lips with the words of
Psalm 31:5, “Into thy hands I commit my spirit”. By giving up the ghost, He breathed His
last. In this study we shall examine the evidences of His death, as well as His burial, a
precursor for His resurrection and the implications for the faith of the Church.
1. From today’s texts, narrate the story of the death of Jesus Christ.
2. Identify from the following texts the evidences for the death and burial of Christ: Matt

Roman soldiers, water and blood gushed out. Christ indeed died in the flesh, thus setting
the stage for His glorious resurrection on Sunday morning which we celebrate today.
This is a great mystery, the consummation of which will be at His second coming as we
always confess at the celebration of the Holy Eucharist: “Christ has died; Christ is risen;
Christ will come again”.
