Luke
23:49.1-55.1

All the multitudes that came together to see this, when they saw the things that were done, returned home beating their breasts. All his acquaintances and the women who followed with him from Galilee stood at a distance, watching these things.

Behold, a man named Joseph, who was a member of the council, a good and righteous man (he had not consented to their counsel and deed),

from Arimathaea, a city of the Jews,

who was also waiting for God’s Kingdom:

this man went to Pilate, and asked for Jesus’ body.

He took it down, and wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb that was cut in stone, where no one had ever been laid. It was the day of the Preparation, and the Sabbath was drawing near.

The women, who had come with him out of Galilee, followed after, and saw the tomb, and how his body was laid.
