"At that time Joseph of Arimathea, a noble councillor, who was also waiting for the kingdom of God, went boldly in to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate wondered if he were already dead, and after summoning the centurion he asked him if he had died already. And when he had learned it from the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph. And when he had bought a winding sheet and taken him down, he wrapped him in the winding sheet and laid him in a grave that had been hewn out of the rock, and he rolled a stone against the door of the grave."
