The Guard at the Tomb
On the next day, which followed the Day of Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees gathered together to Pilate,
saying, "Sir, we remember, while He was still alive, how that deceiver said, c 'After three days I will rise.'
"Therefore command that the tomb be made secure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night and steal Him away, and say to the people, 'He has risen from the dead.' So the last deception will be worse than the first."
Pilate said to them, "You have a guard; go your way, make it as secure as you know how."
So they went and made the tomb secure, d sealing the stone and setting the guard.
