A garden (khpo). See Matthew 18:1 Matthew 18:26 . New (kainon). Fresh, unused. Was never yet laid (oudepw hn teqeimeno). Periphrastic past perfect passive of tiqhmi. It was Joseph's mausoleum, a rock tomb hewn out of the mountain side ( Mark 15:46 ; Matthew 27:60 ; Luke 23:53 ), a custom common with the rich then and now. For royal tombs in gardens see 2 Kings 21:18 2 Kings 21:26 ; Nehemiah 3:16 .
