Joseph of Arimathaea gave his very best for the Lord…what will you do?

When Jesus was crucified, Joseph of Arimathaea went boldly to Pilate, asking him for the body of our Lord. Joseph immediately purchased fine linen (Mark 15:46) and proceeded to Golgotha to remove the body of Jesus from the cross. He wrapped Christ’s body in the linen, and it was laid in the tomb that he had prepared for his own burial.

Joseph lived in Ramla, and even though he had spent a fortune to purchase a stone tomb in Jerusalem, he gave it to the Lord and was later buried in Ramla. He did something great for God. I want to encourage you today to join me in supporting the Jerusalem World Center as we comfort the house of Israel.
