Bible: Matt 27:55-61

27:55 Many 1  women who had followed Jesus from Galilee and given him support 2  were also there, watching from a distance. 27:56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.

Jesus’ Burial

27:57 Now 3  when it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who was also a disciple of Jesus. 4  27:58 He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 5  Then Pilate ordered that it be given to him. 27:59 Joseph 6  took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 7  27:60 and placed it 8  in his own new tomb that he had cut in the rock. 9  Then he rolled a great stone across the entrance 10  of the tomb and went away. 27:61 (Now Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting there, opposite the tomb.)
