Bible: John 19:38-41

Jesus’ Burial

19:38 After this, Joseph of Arimathea, a disciple of Jesus (but secretly, because he feared the Jewish leaders 1 ), 2  asked Pilate if he could remove the body of Jesus. Pilate 3  gave him permission, so he went and took the body away. 4  19:39 Nicodemus, the man who had previously come to Jesus 5  at night, 6  accompanied Joseph, 7  carrying a mixture of myrrh and aloes 8  weighing about seventy-five pounds. 9  19:40 Then they took Jesusbody and wrapped it, with the aromatic spices, 10  in strips of linen cloth 11  according to Jewish burial customs. 12  19:41 Now at the place where Jesus 13  was crucified 14  there was a garden, 15  and in the garden 16  was a new tomb where no one had yet been buried. 17
