Jesus Is Buried

42 (A)And when evening had come, since it was (B)the day of Preparation, that is, the day before the Sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathea, (C)a respected member of the council, who (D)was also himself looking for the kingdom of God, took courage and went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 44 Pilate was surprised to hear that he should have already died.[a] And summoning (E)the centurion, he asked him whether he was already dead. 45 And when he learned from (F)the centurion that he was dead, he granted the corpse to Joseph. 46 And Joseph[b] bought (G)a linen shroud, and taking him down, wrapped him in the linen shroud and (H)laid him in a tomb (I)that had been cut out of the rock. And he rolled (J)a stone against the entrance of the tomb. 47 (K)Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where he was laid.
