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.

The Resurrection

24 (J)But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, (K)taking the spices they had prepared. And they found (L)the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, (M)two (N)men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were (O)frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, (P)while he was still in Galilee, (Q)that the Son of Man (R)must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and (S)be crucified and on (T)the third day rise.” And (U)they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb they (V)told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 Now it was (W)Mary Magdalene and (X)Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles, 11 but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and (Y)they did not believe them. 12 But (Z)Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw (AA)the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened.
