"57 As evening
approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself
become a disciple of Jesus.
58 Going to
Pilate, he asked for Jesus' body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him.
59 Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a
clean linen cloth, 60 and placed it in
his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front
of the entrance to the tomb and went away.
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting there opposite the tomb."
"53 Then he took it down, wrapped it in
linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet
been laid. 54 It was Preparation Day,
and the Sabbath was about to begin."
