The page numbers constitute where the text can be found in the actual book. Reading the entire selection constitutes 8 pages. Pharisees Place Guard At Jesus' Tomb p.838 62. Next day] From sunset Thursday to sunset Friday was the day of preparation for the Sabbath; "the next day that followed" was the Sabbath and it began with sunset Friday. Hence by personally arranging for the watch and sealing the tomb, the chief priests and Pharisees, according to their own tradition, suffered defilement. p.838 63. After three days I will rise again] Jesus' doctrines and claims were known to the people.

He had on a loose robe of most exquisite whiteness. It was a whiteness beyond anything earthly I had ever seen; nor do I believe that any earthly thing could be made to appear so exceedingly white and brilliant.
