He knows that he tells the truth, that you may believe.
For these things happened that the Scripture might be fulfilled, “A bone of him will not be broken.” Again another Scripture says, “They will look on him whom they pierced.” After these things, Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews,
asked of Pilate that he might take away Jesus’ body.
Pilate gave him permission. He came therefore and took away his body. Nicodemus ◆, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred Roman ◆ pounds.
So they took Jesus’ body, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury. Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden. In the garden was a new tomb in which no man had ever yet been laid.
Then because of the Jews’ Preparation Day (for the tomb was near at hand) they laid Jesus there.
Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene went early, while it was still dark, to the tomb, and saw the stone taken away from the tomb.
