50 tNow behold, there was a man named Joseph, a council member, a good and just man. 51 He had not consented to their decision and deed. He was from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, uwho 6himself was also waiting for the kingdom of God. 52 This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 53 vThen he took it down, wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a tomb that was hewn out of the rock, where no one had ever lain before. 54 That day was wthe Preparation, and the Sabbath drew near.
