Christian worshippers held a candlelit vigil on Friday night in Jerusalem, to mark the burial of Jesus Christ.
Worshippers packed the square outside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem's Old City.
The church is regarded by many Christians - especially Catholics and Greek Orthodox Christians - to be the place where Jesus was crucified and buried.
Orthodox Christians, who follow the old Julian calendar, celebrate Holy Week (the last week of Lent before Easter) this week, with Good Friday processions being held on Friday.
Roman Catholic and Protestant congregations that observe the new Gregorian calendar, held their Easter celebrations at the end of March.
Christians believe Jesus was crucified on Good Friday and resurrected on Easter Sunday.
On Saturday there will be the ancient ceremony of the "holy fire", in which a flame said to have been miraculously ignited is passed among worshippers.
