Jesus’ Burial

38 After(A) this, Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus—but secretly because of his fear of the Jews—asked Pilate that he might remove Jesus’ body.(B) Pilate gave him permission, so he came and took His body away. 39 Nicodemus(C) (who had previously come to Him at night) also came, bringing a mixture of about 75 pounds[a] of myrrh and aloes. 40 Then they took Jesus’ body(D) and wrapped it in linen cloths(E) with the aromatic spices, according to the burial(F) custom of the Jews.
