ANOTHER MAN’S TOMB

Ever wander why Jesus was buried in a brand new borrowed tomb? Well to answer this question we must first go back to the beginning. When mankind sinned the penalty for that sin was death. God said to Adam in Gen 3:19,”By the sweat of your face you will eat bread, till you return to the ground, because from it you were taken;For you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Notice Jesus body was resurrected? Although Jesus was 100% man, He was also 100% God. Now for the answer. Jesus was spotless, sinless, and innocent. He died so that our sins would be forgiven. John Gill put it this way, “Christ was laid not in his own, but in “another’s” tomb, which is expressive of his humility. In his lifetime, Jesus had nowhere to lay down his head to sleep, and at his death had no tomb of his own to lay his dead body in. Thus, it denotes that what he did and suffered, and what was done to him, were not for himself but for others. He died not for his own sins, but for the sins of others, and he was buried, not so much for his own sake, but for others, that they and their sins might be buried with him.” Alfred Plummer said, “Jesus’ life began in a borrowed stable and ended in a borrowed tomb.”
