Bible: Mark 15:43-46

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