and saying - The man that taketh down the Temple and in three days buildeth it! Save, thyself! If thou art God's, Son, come down from the cross. Likewise, the High-priests, also, mocking, with the Scribes and Elders, were saying: Others, he saved, - Himself, he cannot save: Israel's King, he is! Let him come down, now, from the cross, - and we will believe on him! read more.
He hath put confidence upon God, Let him rescue him, now, if he desireth him; for he said, I am, God's Son. And, the same thing, the robbers also, who were crucified with him, were casting in his teeth.

saying - Sir! we have been put in mind that, that deceiver, said, while yet living, - After three days, will I, arise.


And, when, evening, arrived, there came a rich man from Arimathaea, whose name was Joseph, who also, himself, had been discipled unto Jesus. The same, going unto Pilate, claimed the body of Jesus. Then, Pilate commanded it to be given up. And Joseph, taking the body, wrapped it up in a clean Indian-cloth, read more.
and laid it in his new tomb, which he had hewn in the rock, and, rolling near a large stone unto the door of the tomb, departed. Now there were there, Mary the Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre. And, on the morrow, which is after the preparation, the High-priests and the Pharisee were gathered together unto Pilate, saying - Sir! we have been put in mind that, that deceiver, said, while yet living, - After three days, will I, arise. Command, therefore, that the sepulchre be made secure until the third day, - lest once the disciples should come and steal him, and say unto the people, He hath arisen from the dead! and, the last deception, shall be, worse than the first. Pilate saith unto them - Ye have a guard: Go your way, secure it for yourselves, as ye know how. And, they, went and secured for themselves the sepulchre, sealing the stone, with the guard.

And evening, already, having begun, since it was a preparation, that is, the eve of a Sabbath, Joseph of Arimathaea, a noble counsellor, who, also himself, was awaiting the kingdom of God, came; and, venturing, went in unto Pilate, and claimed the body of Jesus. But, Pilate, wondered whether, already, he was dead; and, calling near the centurion, questioned him - whether he had, already, died. read more.
And, getting to know from the centurion, he presented the corpse unto Joseph. And, buying a fine Indian cloth, he took him down, and wrapped him about with the cloth, and laid him in a tomb, which had been hewn out of a rock, - and rolled near a stone upon the door of the tomb. Now, Mary the Magdalene, and Mary the mother of Joses, were viewing how he had been laid.

And lo! a man, by name Joseph, being, a councillor, - a good and righteous man (the same had not consented unto their plan and deed), - from Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who was awaiting the kingdom of God, the same, going unto Pilate, claimed the body of Jesus. read more.
And, taking it down, he wrapped it in a fine Indian cloth, and laid him in a tomb hewn in stone, - where no one as yet was lying. And it was a day of preparation, and, a Sabbath, was about to dawn. And the women, they who had come out of Galilee with him, following after, observed the tomb, and how his body was laid. And, returning, they made ready spices and perfumes. And, on the Sabbath, indeed, they were quiet, according to the commandment;

The Jews, therefore, since it was, a preparation, that the bodies might not remain upon the cross during the Sabbath, - for that Sabbath day was, great, requested Pilate that their legs might be broken, and they be taken away. The soldiers, therefore, came; and, of the first, indeed, brake the legs, and of the other who was crucified with him, - but coming, unto Jesus, when they saw that, already, he was dead, they brake not his legs; - read more.
but, one of the soldiers, with a spear, pierced, his side, and there came out, straightway, blood and water. And, he that hath seen, hath borne witness; and, genuine, is his testimony, and, he, knoweth that he saith, what is true, that, ye also, may believe. For these things came to pass, that, the Scripture, might be fulfilled - A bone thereof, shall not be crushed; and, again, a different Scripture, saith - They shall look unto him whom they pierced. But, after these things, Joseph from Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but having kept it secret for fear of the Jews, requested Pilate, that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave permission. He came, therefore, and took away his body. There came, moreover, Nicodemus also, - he that came unto him by night at the first, - bearing a roll of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds' weight. So they received the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen-bandages with the spices, - just as it is, a custom, with the Jews to prepare for burial. Now there was, in the place where he was crucified, a garden; and, in the garden, an unused tomb, wherein, as yet, no one had been laid. So, there, by reason of the preparation of the Jews, because, near, was the tomb, laid they Jesus.
