Jesus is Buried

23:50 Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Jewish Council, The Sanhedrin, a good and righteous man— 51 he had not voted for their plan and action—from the Jewish town of Arimathea; and he was waiting for the kingdom of God. 52 He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 53 Then he took it down, wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid it in a tomb cut in the rock, in which no one had yet been laid.

54 It was the Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was just beginning. 55 So the women who had come with Jesus from Galilee, following close behind, saw the tomb and how his body was laid. 56 Then they went back and prepared spices and perfumes, and on the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment.
