The Burial of Jesus

Mat 27:57 When the evening had come, there came a rich man of Arimathea named Joseph, who himself also was Jesus' disciple.
Mat 27:58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
Mat 27:59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth
Mat 27:60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock. And he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulcher and departed.
Mat 27:61 And Mary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the sepulcher.
Mat 27:62 Now the next day, that following the Day of the Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
Mat 27:63 saying, "Sir, we remember that that deceiver said while he was yet alive, `After three days I will rise again.'
Mat 27:64 Command therefore that the sepulcher be made secure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night and steal him away, and say unto the people, `He is risen from the dead,' so that the last error shall be worse than the first."
Mat 27:65 Pilate said unto them, "Ye have a watch. Go your way, make it as secure as ye can."
Mat 27:66 So they went and made the sepulcher secure, sealing the stone and setting up a watch.
