Kweelana a Mulawo, mitunta ‘tayeelede kuba acisamu masiku oonse pe,’ pele yeelede kuzikkwa “buzuba mbubonya oobo.”—Deuteronomo 21:22, 23.

Kuyungizya waawo, ciindi cakumazuba muli Bwasanu ciitwa kuti nciindi ca Kulibambila nkaambo bantu balabamba zyakulya akumanizya milimo iili yoonse iitakonzyi kulindila kuti ikacitwe yainda Sabata.

(Levitiko 23:5, 6) Aciindi eeci buzuba oobu bwakusaanguna bwawida mubuzuba bwa Sabata yaamvwiki, nkokuti buzuba bwaciloba.

Aboobo ba Juda bamulomba Pilato kuti abinzyaanisye lufwu lwa Jesu ababbi bobilo mbocili limwi. Kwiinda mukucita buti? Kwiinda mukutyola maulu aabo. Eeci cilapa kuti batacikonzyi kubelesya maulu aabo kunyamuna camba kuti bayoye. Basikalumamba baboola akutyola maulu aababbi bobilo. Pele Jesu ulibonya kuti wafwa kale, aboobo tiibamutyola maulu. Eeci cazuzikizya lugwalo lwa Intembauzyo 34:20 ilwaamba kuti: “Ulalinda mafwuwa oonse aamuntu ooyu; kunyina noliba lyomwe lyatyolwa.”

Josefa uuzwa kumunzi wa Aremateya, “muntu umwi muvwubi” alimwi uulemekwa wamu Nkuta Mpati Yaba Juda, nkwali awalo aabusena mpaajailwa Jesu. (Matayo 27:57) Waambwa kuti “mwaalumi mubotu alimwi uululeme,” ooyo ‘uulindila Bwami bwa Leza.’ Mubwini, ooyu “sikwiiya wa Jesu iwakali kulisisa akaambo kakuyoowa ba Juda,” tanaazuminizya nkuta mboyaakosola makani aajatikizya Jesu. (Luka 23:50; Marko 15:43; Johane 19:38) Cabusicamba Josefa waunka kuli Pilato waakulomba mubili wa Jesu. Pilato waita silutwe wabasikalumamba uulanganya makani aaya walo iwaamba kuti ncobeni Jesu wafwa kale. Mpoonya Pilato wamuzumizya Josefa kubweza mubili.

Josefa waula mulembo mubotu uunyina tombe akwaangula mubili wa Jesu kuzwa aacisamu. Wauzambaila mumulembo kulibambila kuzikka. Nikodemo, ooyo “wakaswaya Jesu masiku ciindi cakusaanguna,” awalo wagwasyilizya mukubamba mubili. (Johane 19:39) Waleta cibbudu icilema makkilogilamu aatandila ku 33 catununkilizyo tudula kapati twamuro alimwi aaloye tuvweledwe. Mubili wa Jesu wazambailwa mumilembo antoomwe atununkilizyo, kweelana acilengwa ncobacita ba Juda nobazikka.

Josefa ulijisi cuumbwe icakasyigwa mumwala uuli munsi-munsi eeco citanabuzuba cazikkilwa muntu, oomo mowazikkwa mubili wa Jesu. Mpoonya bakunkulisya bbwe lipati akusinka kumulyango wacuumbwe. Eeci bacicita cakufwambaana kaitanatalika Sabata. Kuboneka kuti Mariya Magadalene alimwi a Mariya banyina Jakobo Muniini bali kugwasyilizya mukubamba mubili wa Jesu. Lino baunka kuŋanda cakufwambaana “kuyoobamba tununkilizyo amafwuta aanunkilila” kuti bazyikuubambe alimwi mubili wa Jesu yainda Sabata.—Luka 23:56.

Ibuzuba butobela, mu Sabata, basilutwe babapaizi alimwi aba Farisi baunka kuli Pilato akwaamba kuti: “Twayeeya kuti silweeno ulya kacili muumi wakaamba kuti, ‘Kwainda mazuba otatwe ndiyoobusyigwa.’ Aboobo kolailila kuti cuumbwe cilindwe kusikila mubuzuba bwatatu, kutegwa basikwiiya bakwe bataunki kuyoomubba akwaambila bantu kuti, ‘Wabusyigwa kubafwu!’ Eelyo lweeno lwamamanino oolu luyoobija kwiinda lwakusaanguna.” Pilato wabaambila kuti: “Mulakonzya kubikka balindizi. Aboobo kamuya mukacilinde kabotu kweelana ambomuzyi.”—Matayo 27:63-65.

Mafwumofwumo mu Nsondo, Mariya Magadalene, Mariya banyina Jakobo, alimwi abamakaintu bambi baleta tununkilizyo kucuumbwe kuzyikunanika mubili wa Jesu. Babuzyanya kuti: “Nguni uutiitukunkulisyile bbwe lili kumulyango wacuumbwe?” (Marko 16:3) Pele bajana kuti kwacitikide muzuzumo wanyika. Kuyungizya waawo, mungelo wa Leza walikunkulisya bbwe, balindizi baunka tabako, alimwi mucuumbwe taaku cilimo!
