Text of Rolling Stone Tomb Video

The gospels mention an alabaster jar with annointing oil used by the women of Bethany. After a quiet Sabbath, early Sunday morning they come to Jesus' tomb bringing ointment and gravecloths. You can see in this replica of a tomb at our museum why they wondered who would help them roll back the stone.

Remember that Joseph of Arimathea was one of the elders, which means it would be a very wealthy tomb. And as to the certainty of the mystery of the resurrection, the stone was already rolled back helping them to believe that God raised Jesus from the dead.
