Jesus’ Burial

23:50 Now 3  there was a man named Joseph who was a member of the council, 4  a good and righteous man. 23:51 (He 5  had not consented 6  to their plan and action.) He 7  was from the Judean town 8  of Arimathea, and was looking forward to 9  the kingdom of God. 10  23:52 He went to Pilate and asked for the body 11  of Jesus. 23:53 Then 12  he took it down, wrapped it in a linen cloth, 13  and placed it 14  in a tomb cut out of the rock, 15  where no one had yet been buried. 16  23:54 It was the day of preparation 17  and the Sabbath was beginning. 18  23:55 The 19  women who had accompanied Jesus 20  from Galilee followed, and they saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. 23:56 Then 21  they returned and prepared aromatic spices 22  and perfumes. 23 

On the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment. 24
