    Ted The bible doesn't say but I'd like to believe he was because He begged for the body and put it in a fresh tomb. Also when you work Gods word closely He just wrapped in cloth others came by later and embalmed Him so that's an indication He believed he was going to raise from the dead, whats really interesting is all the disciples walked away and one betrayed Him all scattered. When it comes to the Gospels you have to be very careful sequence of events.

    Hi Dianne,

    Are you sure that it was Nicodemus who begged for the body of Jesus, or was it Joseph of Arimathea?

    Also, something I would like to share with you from my studies, for whatever it might be worth. The Jews did not embalm back then. What they would do is they would put various ointments and spices (fragrant spices) on a dead body to keep the odor down as the body decomposed. They would put this fragrant spice on the body, wrap the body some, add more spice, and then finish wrapping.

    Thought you might find this interesting!

    I have tremendous respect and love for your knowledge and heart for Gods Word. That is displayed in your graceful communication, so when I make mistakes I have much more respect for believers who don't judge but with agapeo love instruct. So thank you. Love in Christ.

    Jesus was not embalmed

    Embalming was not something done during those times. People used spices to repel the smell of death in a corpse! Do you remember Mary when she poured this fragrance over Christ, getting him ready for His death! How Judas spoke against it, that the spices should have been given to the poor! This fragrance fragrance would be a sign of life everlasting! If and when you smell that fragrance, look up, for Christ will be coming for you! When the Father in heaven reveals these things unto you, you will say "My Lord and my God". In all the world and time of times , we are going to see the return of Christ! Satan will do everything in His power to deceive the world, Even as He does now!
