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.
