And behold, there was a man named Joseph
(See Gill on Matthew 27:57).
Mark says, he was an "honourable" one; he was either one of the council of the high priest, or a member of the great sanhedrim; (See Gill on Mark 15:43).
and he was a good man, and a just;
he was kind and beneficent in his temper, and just, and righteous in his life and actions; a like character is given of Joseph the husband of Mary, the mother of our Lord, ( Matthew 1:19 ) .
