They rested quietly on the Sabbath, as commanded.
Luke 23:56

The day after Jesus died was the Sabbath. In fact, John mentions in 19:31 that this particular Sabbath was a High Holy Day. On the Sabbath, Jews worship at the Temple. Just as Christians typically go to church on Sunday, the Jews spent time praying and worshiping. But for His follwers, Jesus, God’s chosen One, the Messiah, was gone. What was there to worship? Who was there to pray to? Sabbath is a day of feasting and celebration, but there was nothing to celebrate that day. There was only silence.
