50 Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man, 51 who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathea, and he himself was waiting for the kingdom of God.p 52 Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. 53 Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. 54 It was Preparation Day,q and the Sabbath was about to begin.
55 The women who had come with Jesus from Galileer followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. 56 Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes.s But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment.t
24 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had preparedu and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.v 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightningw stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:x 7 ‘The Son of Many must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”z 8 Then they remembered his words.a
