Below are my detailed comments on everything Mark has to say about Holy Saturday - the Sabbath day that lies between Good Friday, the day of Jesus' death, and Easter Sunday, the day of Jesus' resurrection.
Mark says nothing.
Mark 15:47 -
Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where the body was laid.
is folowed by, Mark 16:1 -
When the sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and Salome brought spices so that they might go and anoint him.
Ponder and pray is my advice for this day.
