Bible: Luke 23:47-56
23:47 Now when the centurion 1 saw what had happened, he praised God and said, “Certainly this man was innocent!” 2 23:48 And all the crowds that had assembled for this spectacle, when they saw what had taken place, returned home beating their breasts. 3 23:49 And all those who knew Jesus 4 stood at a distance, and the women who had followed him from Galilee saw 5 these things.
23:50 Now 6 there was a man named Joseph who was a member of the council, 7 a good and righteous man. 23:51 (He 8 had not consented 9 to their plan and action.) He 10 was from the Judean town 11 of Arimathea, and was looking forward to 12 the kingdom of God. 13 23:52 He went to Pilate and asked for the body 14 of Jesus. 23:53 Then 15 he took it down, wrapped it in a linen cloth, 16 and placed it 17 in a tomb cut out of the rock, 18 where no one had yet been buried. 19 23:54 It was the day of preparation 20 and the Sabbath was beginning. 21 23:55 The 22 women who had accompanied Jesus 23 from Galilee followed, and they saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. 23:56 Then 24 they returned and prepared aromatic spices 25 and perfumes. 26
On the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment. 27
