It is said that Jesus Christ was arrested and then made to walk with the cross on which he was later crucified. He suffered on the cross for six hours, and in the final three hours, when it turned completely dark, his spirit left his body.

According to Matthew 28:1, “After the Shabbat, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb”. “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said…” (Matt 28:6)
