43 aJoseph, 1the honorable member of the Council, from Arimathea, who was also himself bawaiting the ckingdom of God, came; and gathering courage, he went in to dPilate and asked for the body of Jesus.
44 And Pilate marveled that He had already died, and calling to him the acenturion, he questioned him whether He had been dead long.
45 And when he found out from the centurion, he granted the corpse to Joseph.
46 And Joseph purchased a piece of fine linen, took Him down, and wrapped Him in the fine linen. And he 1laid Him in a atomb which was hewn out of rock and rolled a stone against the bdoor of the tomb.
47 And Mary the aMagdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where He was laid.
