A Guard Set Over the Tomb
Interwoven Gospels

Now on the following day, which is the day after the Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered together to Pilate, saying, "Sir, we remember that the deceiver said, while He was yet alive, 'After three days I arise from the dead." Command, therefore, that the sepulchre be made secure until the third day; lest His disciples come and steal Him away, and say to the people 'He is risen from the dead'; and the last error will be worse than the first." Pilate said to them, "Ye have a guard; go, make it secure as ye know how." Then they went and made the sepulchre secure, by sealing the stone and with the guard.
