Bible: Matthew 27:57-61

Jesus’ Burial

27:57 Now 1  when it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who was also a disciple of Jesus. 2  27:58 He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 3  Then Pilate ordered that it be given to him. 27:59 Joseph 4  took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 5  27:60 and placed it 6  in his own new tomb that he had cut in the rock. 7  Then he rolled a great stone across the entrance 8  of the tomb and went away. 27:61 (Now Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting there, opposite the tomb.)
