WS-devo_PMSLater Joseph from the city of Arimathea asked Pilate to let him remove Jesus’ body. Pilate gave him permission...So Joseph removed it. Nicodemus, the one who had first come to Jesus at night, went with Joseph and brought 75 pounds of a myrrh and aloe mixture. These two men took the body of Jesus and bound it with strips of linen...laced the strips with spices. A garden was located in the place where Jesus was crucified...[with] a new tomb in which no one had yet been placed. Joseph and Nicodemus put Jesus in that tomb.... (John 19:38-42 GWT) Out of respect, these secret followers of Jesus buried His body according to custom. But this is not the end of the story! ©Word-Strong_2013
