Bible: Mark 15:42-46

Jesus’ Burial

15:42 Now 1  when evening had already come, since it was the day of preparation (that is, the day before the Sabbath), 2  15:43 Joseph of Arimathea, a highly regarded member of the council, 3  who was himself looking forward to 4  the kingdom of God, 5  went boldly to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 6  15:44 Pilate was surprised that he was already dead. He 7  called the centurion and asked him if he had been dead for some time. 15:45 When Pilate 8  was informed by the centurion, 9  he gave the body to Joseph. 15:46 After Joseph 10  bought a linen cloth 11  and took down the body, he wrapped it in the linen and placed it in a tomb cut out of the rock. 12  Then 13  he rolled a stone across the entrance 14  of the tomb.
