Bible: Mark 15:42-47
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. 15:47 Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where the body 15 was placed.
