Matthew 27:55-66New American Standard Bible (NASB)
55 Many women were there looking on from a distance, who had followed Jesus from Galilee while [a]ministering to Him.56 Among them was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
Jesus Is Buried
57 When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus.58 This man 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 cloth,60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the entrance of the tomb and went away.61 And Mary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the grave.
62 Now on the next day, [b]the day after the preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered together with Pilate,63 and said, “Sir, we remember that when He was still alive that deceiver said, ‘After three days I am to rise again.’64 Therefore, give orders for the grave to be made secure until the third day, otherwise His disciples may come and steal Him away and say to the people, ‘He has risen from the dead,’ and the last deception will be worse than the first.”65 Pilate said to them, “You have a guard; go, make it as secure as you know how.”66 And they went and made the grave secure, and along with the guard they set a seal on the stone.
40 There were also some women looking on from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of [a]James the [b]Less and Joses, and Salome.41 When He was in Galilee, they used to follow Him and [c]minister to Him; and there were many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.
Jesus Is Buried
42 When evening had already come, because it was the preparation day, that is, the day before the Sabbath,43 Joseph of Arimathea came, a prominent member of the Council, who himself was waiting for the kingdom of God; and he gathered up courage and went in before Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus.44 Pilate wondered if He was dead by this time, and summoning the centurion, he questioned him as to whether He was already dead.45 And ascertaining this from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph.46 Joseph bought a linen cloth, took Him down, wrapped Him in the linen cloth and laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb.47 Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses were looking on to see where He was laid.
