Jesus Is Buried
It was the day before the Sabbath. That day was called Preparation Day. As evening approached,
Joseph went boldly to Pilate and asked for Jesus' body. Joseph was from the town of Arimathea. He was a leading member of the Jewish Council. He was waiting for God's kingdom.
Pilate was surprised to hear that Jesus was already dead. So he called for the Roman commander. He asked him if Jesus had already died.
The commander said it was true. So Pilate gave the body to Joseph.
Then Joseph bought some linen cloth. He took the body down and wrapped it in the linen. He put it in a tomb cut out of rock. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance to the tomb.
Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where Jesus' body had been placed.
