Jesus Is Buried

38 (A)After these things Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly (B)for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus, and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took away his body. 39 (C)Nicodemus also, who earlier had come to Jesus[a] by night, came (D)bringing a mixture of (E)myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds[b] in weight. 40 So they took the body of Jesus and (F)bound it in (G)linen cloths with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews. 41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a (H)garden, and (I)in the garden a new tomb (J)in which no one had yet been laid. 42 So because of the Jewish (K)day of Preparation, (L)since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there.
