His Burial

Joseph of Arimathea asked for the body of Jesus Christ do give a proper burial from Pilate. Jesus was buried in a rich mans grave. You can read about the burial in the four gospels: Matthew 27:57-61, Mark 15:42-47, Luke 23:50-56 and John 19:38-42.

We cannot forget the tomb of Jesus was heavily guarded. A giant stone was rolled in front of the grave. One that would require tons of man power to move. Plus, it had a seal over it to show if it was moved or not.
