19 John - Revised Standard Version The Gospel
After this Joseph of Arimathe'a, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus, and Pilate gave him leave. So he came and took away his body.The Burial of Jesus Jn.19.38-42 Mt.27.57-61  Mk.15.42-47  Lk.23.50-56   
Nicode'mus also, who had at first come to him by night, came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds' weight.         
They took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews.         
Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb where no one had ever been laid.         
So, because of the Jewish day of Preparation, as the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there.
