Now there was a man named Joseph, a council member, a good and righteous man.
(He had not been in agreement with the council and their action.) He was from the Judean town of Arimathea, and he was waiting for the kingdom of God.
This man went to Pilate and asked for Yeshua’s body.
And he took it down, wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid Him in a tomb cut out of the rock, where no one had ever yet been laid.
Now it was the Day of Preparation, and Shabbat was approaching.
The women who had come with Him from the Galilee followed, and they saw the tomb and how His body was laid.
Then they returned and prepared spices and perfumes. But on Shabbat they rested according to the commandment.
