When evening had come, a rich man from Arimathaea ◆ named Joseph, who himself was also Jesus’ disciple, came.
This man went to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body. Then Pilate commanded the body to be given up.
Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had cut out in the rock.
Then he rolled a large stone against the door of the tomb, and departed.
Mary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the tomb.
Now on the next day, which was the day after the Preparation Day, the chief priests and the Pharisees were gathered together to Pilate,
saying, “Sir, we remember what that deceiver said while he was still alive: ‘After three days I will rise again.’
