John 19:42

Context
19:42 And so, because it was the Jewish day of preparation 1  and the tomb was nearby, 2  they placed Jesus’ body there.

1 sn The day of preparation was the day before the Sabbath when everything had to be prepared for it, as no work could be done on the Sabbath.

2 sn The tomb was nearby. The Passover and the Sabbath would begin at 6 p.m., so those who had come to prepare and bury the body could not afford to waste time.
