Mark 15:45

Granted the corpse (edwrhsato to ptwma). This official information was necessary before the burial. As a matter of fact Pilate was probably glad to turn the body over to Joseph else the body would go to the potter's field. This is the only instance when ptwma (cadaver, corpse) is applied to the body (swma) of Jesus, the term used in Matthew 27:59 ; Luke 23:53 ; John 19:40 ).
