Matthew 27:57-61 – Jesus’ Body Given to Joseph of Arimathea

|| Mark 15:42-47; Luke 23:50-55; John 19:38-42

MT27:57 Now as evening was approaching a rich man[1] named Joseph of Arimathea,[2] himself a disciple of Jesus, MT27:58 approached Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate gave the command[3] to release [the corpse]. MT27:59 Receiving the body Joseph wrapped it[4] in fine, clean linen. MT27:60 He placed the body in a new memorium[5] which he had quarried out of the rock. He then rolled a great stone at the opening to the memorium and departed. MT27:61 But, there were Mary the Magdalene and the other Mary sitting before the grave.

*

[1] A rich man: Note the prophecy at Isaiah 53:9.

[2] Joseph of Arimathea: See Mark 15:43-46; Luke 23:50-53; John 19:38-42. Mark 15:43 adds,

“… a reputable member of the Council, who also himself was waiting for the kingdom of God. He took courage to go in before Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.” Luke 23:50, 51 adds, “a man named Joseph, who was a member of the Council, a good and righteous man – this [man] had not voted in support of their design and action.” John 19:38 adds, “a disciple of Jesus but a secret one out of [his] fear of the Jews.”

[3] Pilate gave the command: Mark 15:44, 45 adds, “Pilate wondered whether he was already dead, and, summoning the army officer, he asked him whether he had already died. So after making certain from the army officer, he granted the corpse to Joseph.”

[4] Joseph wrapped it: John 19:39-41 adds, “Nicodemus also, the man that came to him in the night the first time, came bringing a roll of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds [of it]. So they took the body of Jesus and bound it up with bandages with the spices, just the way the Jews have the custom of preparing for burial. Incidentally, at the place where he was impaled there was a garden, and in the garden a new memorial tomb, in which no one had ever yet been laid.”

[5] A new memorium: The Greek is MNEMEIO. Or, NW: memorial tomb; KJV: new tomb; KNX: new grave; NEB: unused tomb.
