“ And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.”
What did Joseph of Arimathaea do after he took the body of the Lord from Pilate? Who was Nicodemus and how did they both relate to Christ? Why did women follow the actions of Joseph and Nicodemus?
Father Markos Mangasaryan provides explanations.
