Joseph of Arimathaea

Joseph of Arimathaea was a member of the Sanhedrin, a disciple of Christ, and a rich and faithful Israelite who took no part in the condemnation of our Lord. After the crucifixion, Joseph had the Savior’s body wrapped in a clean linen cloth and laid him in Joseph’s own cavelike tomb (Matt. 27:57–60; Mark 15:43–46; Luke 23:50–53; John 19:38–42).
