Arimathea

Arimathea [N] [H] [S]

a "city of the Jews" ( Luke 23:51 ), the birth-place of Joseph in whose sepulchre our Lord was laid ( Matthew 27:57 Matthew 27:60 ; John 19:38 ). It is probably the same place as Ramathaim in Ephraim, and the birth-place of Samuel ( 1 Samuel 1:1 1 Samuel 1:19 ). Others identify it with Ramleh in Dan, or Rama (q.v.) in Benjamin ( Matthew 2:18 ).
