And now when the even was come, there 42 came a rich man named Joseph, of Arimathæa, M". 27. a city of the Jews: a counsellor; and he was a

And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him 45 whether he had been any while dead. And when he knew it of the centurion, he 3 J. 19.38 the body to Joseph. He came therefore, and 39 took the body of Jesus. And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and 40 aloes, about an hundred pound weight. Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in Acts 5. 6. linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of 41 the Jews is to bury. Now in the place where
he was crucified there was a garden; and in M*. 15. the garden a new sepulchre, hewn out of a 46 rock, wherein was never man yet laid. There 1 Is. 53. 9. J. 19.41 laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews'

141. The day after the crucifixion. Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate, saying, Sir, we re- 63 member that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again. Command therefore that the sepulchre be made 64 sure 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 the last error shall be worse than the first. Pilate said 65 unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can. So they went, and 66 Dan. 6. made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
And when the sabbath was past, Mary Mag- M*. 16. dalene, and Mary the mother of James, and 1 Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.

AND very early in the morning the first day A. D. 33. of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at M. 28. the rising of the sun. And, behold, there 2 was 2 a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 3a His countenance was like lightning, and his a Dan. 10. 4 raiment white as snow: and for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
And they said among themselves, Who shall 3 roll us away the stone from the door of the 4 sepulchre? And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very 5 great. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were 6 affrighted. And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: be7 hold the place where they laid him. But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye M". 28. see him, as he said unto you. And they de8 parted quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples J. 20. 2 word.

PETER therefore went forth, and that other J. 20. disciple, and came to the sepulchre. So they 3, 4 ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the 5 linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. Then 6 cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, and the napkin, that was about his head, 7 not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. Then went in 8 also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. For as 9 Ps. 16.10. yet they knew not the scripture, that he must Acts 2.25, rise again from the dead.

THEN the disciples went away again unto J. 20. their own home. But Mary stood without at 10, 11 the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, and seeth two angels in white sitting, the one 12 at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. And they say unto 13 her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. And 14 when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith unto her, "Woman, why 15 "weepest thou? whom seekest thou?" She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus saith unto her, "Mary." She 16 turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. Jesus saith unto her, 17 "Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to

145. He appeareth to the disciples.
AND as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, "All hail." And they came and held him by the feet, and wor10 shipped him. Then said Jesus unto them, “Be "not afraid go tell my brethren that they go "into Galilee, and there shall they see me.'
146. The high priests give the soldiers money to say that he was stolen out of his sepulchre. Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were 12 done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large 13 money unto the soldiers, saying, Say ye, His
disciples came by night, and stole him away 14 while we slept. And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. 15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
