Jesus Is Buried

57 (A)When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who also was a disciple of Jesus. 58 He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. 59 And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud 60 and (B)laid it in his own new tomb, (C)which he had cut in the rock. And he rolled (D)a great stone to the entrance of the tomb and went away. 61 Mary Magdalene and (E)the other Mary were there, sitting opposite the tomb.

The Guard at the Tomb

62 The next day, that is, after the day of (F)Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate 63 and said, “Sir, we remember how (G)that impostor said, while he was still alive, (H)‘After three days I will rise.’ 64 Therefore order the tomb to be made secure until the third day, (I)lest his disciples go and steal him away and tell the people, ‘He has risen from the dead,’ and the last fraud will be worse than the first.” 65 Pilate said to them, “You have (J)a guard[a] of soldiers. Go, make it as secure as you can.” 66 So they went and made the tomb secure by (K)sealing the stone and setting a guard.
