Bible: Mat. 27:63-66
27:63 and said, “Sir, we remember that while that deceiver was still alive he said, ‘After three days I will rise again.’ 27:64 So give orders to secure the tomb until the third day. Otherwise his disciples may come and steal his body 1 and say to the people, ‘He has been raised from the dead,’ and the last deception will be worse than the first.” 27:65 Pilate said to them, “Take 2 a guard of soldiers. Go and make it as secure as you can.” 27:66 So 3 they went with the soldiers 4 of the guard and made the tomb secure by sealing the stone.
