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.

Jesus’ Burial

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
