Joseph Of Arimathea

"Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man, who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathea and he was waiting for The Kingdom of God. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus' body. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth [see The Shroud of Turin] and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin. The women [see Mary and Mary of Magdala] who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how His body was laid in it. Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to The Commandment." (Luke 23:50-56)

Garden Tomb Garden Tomb

The Garden Tomb is one of the two strongest possibilities for the burial place of Jesus Christ after He was crucified at Calvary. It was discovered by Charles Gordon in the 1880s.

The interior of the tomb measures 14 feet (4.3 meters) wide, 10 feet (3.0 meters) deep and 7½ feet (2.3 meters) high. Only one of the two graves inside appear to have been used, yet it does not appear as though the body had been left there for very long - there are no bones or other signs of natural decomposition.

The interior meets all of the requirements for the Bible's account - there is room for Peter and John to enter (John 20:3-9), and a place for the two angels to sit when they spoke with Mary Magdala (John 20:10-18).
