19 ΚΑΤΑ ΙΩΑΝΝΗΝ Reference John
Μετὰ δὲ ταῦτα ἠρώτησεν τὸν Πιλᾶτον Ἰωσὴφ ὁ ἀπὸ Ἁριμαθαίας, ὢν μαθητὴς τοῦ Ἰησοῦ κεκρυμμένος δὲ διὰ τὸν φόβον τῶν Ἰουδαίων, ἵνα ἀρῃ τὸ σῶμα τοῦ Ἰησοῦ· καὶ ἐπέτρε ψεν ὁ Πιλᾶτος. ἦλθεν οὖν καὶ ἦρεν τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ.The Burial of Jesus Jn.19.38-42 | Mt.27.57-61 | Mk.15.42-47 | Lk.23.50-56After 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.
ἦλθεν δὲ καὶ Νικόδημος, ὁ ἐλθὼν πρὸς αὐτὸν νυκτὸς τὸ πρῶτον, φέρων μίγμα Σμύρνης καὶ ἀλόης ὡς λίτρας ἑκατόν. 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.
ἐλαβον οὖν τὸ σῶμα τοῦ Ἰησοῦ καὶ ἐδησαν αὐτὸ ὀθονίοις μετὰ τῶν ἀρωμάτων, καθὼς ἐθος ἐστὶν τοῖς Ἰουδαίοις ἐνταφιάζειν. They took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews.
ἦν δὲ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ ὁπου ἐσταυρώθη κῆπος, καὶ ἐν τῷ κήπῳ μνημεῖον καινὸν ἐν ᾧ οὐδέπω οὐδεὶς ἦν τεθειμένος·  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.
ἐκεῖ οὖν διὰ τὴν παρασκευὴν τῶν Ἰουδαίων, ὅτι ἐγγὺς ἦν τὸ μνημεῖον, ἐθηκαν τὸν Ἰησοῦν.  So, because of the Jewish day of Preparation, as the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there.
