    Joseph of Arimathea

    Joseph of Arimathea 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).
