Jesus Is Buried

50 (A)Now there was a man named Joseph, from the Jewish town of Arimathea. He was a member of the council, a good and righteous man, 51 who had not consented to their decision and action; and he (B)was looking for the kingdom of God. 52 This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 53 Then he took it down and wrapped it in a linen shroud and (C)laid him in a tomb cut in stone, (D)where no one had ever yet been laid. 54 It was the day of (E)Preparation, and the Sabbath was beginning.[a] 55 (F)The women (G)who had come with him from Galilee followed and saw the tomb and how his body was laid. 56 Then they returned and (H)prepared spices and ointments.

On the Sabbath they rested (I)according to the commandment.
