Initially, the body of Jesus was treated in a way dikafani.
“When evening came, a rich man, Arimathea, named Joseph, and who had become a disciple of Jesus, too. He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate ordered him to hand it over. And Joseph took the corpse, shook it with a clean white linen, and laid it in the new tomb which he had cut in the rock; and after he had rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb, he departed. But Mary Magdalene and the other Mary dwelt there sitting before the tomb “(Matthew 27: 57-61).
“There is a man named Joseph. He is a member of the Great House, and a good man is righteous. He disagrees with the decisions and actions of the assembly. He was from Arimathea a Jewish city and he was looking forward to the kingdom of God. He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. And when he had lowered the corpse, he laid it in linen, and laid it in a tomb which was dug in a rock, where there had never been a corpse laid. That day was the preparation and the Sabbath was about to begin. And the women who came with Jesus from Galilee, came and saw the tomb and how his body was laid. And when they came home, they prepared spices and ointments of myrrh “(Luke 23: 50-56a).
Matthew and Luke clearly explain the corpse of Jesus cared for by caring in a way dikafani. The question is why, when deaths of Christians are not denied, but in fact are (suited, shod, handkerchieved, bermake-up, robed, hatched, carrying a bag or a stick)? Why do not they imitate Jesus’ way of being buried, that is, by means of a covenant? Which do Christians imitate? Imitate Jesus or follow just the tricks of the church?
The deceased was then commonplace at that time because it was so God’s teaching practiced by Jesus and the general Jewish community. In the story of Lazarus resurrected, Lazarus’ body was also doomed.
