27:55-66 Erant autem ibi mulieres multae a longe aspicientes, quae secutae erant Iesum a Galilaea ministrantes ei; inter quas erat Maria Magdalene et Maria Iacobi et Ioseph mater et mater filiorum Zebedaei. Cum sero autem factum esset, venit homo dives ab Arimathaea nomine Ioseph, qui et ipse discipulus erat Iesu. Hic accessit ad Pilatum et petiit corpus Iesu. Tunc Pilatus iussit reddi. Et accepto corpore, Ioseph involvit illud in sindone munda et posuit illud in monumento suo novo, quod exciderat in petra, et advolvit saxum magnum ad ostium monumenti et abiit. Erat autem ibi Maria Magdalene et altera Maria sedentes contra sepulcrum. Altera autem die, quae est post Parascevem, convenerunt principes sacerdotum et pharisaei ad Pilatum dicentes: "Domine, recordati sumus quia seductor ille dixit adhuc vivens: "Post tres dies resurgam". Iube ergo custodiri sepulcrum usque in diem tertium, ne forte veniant discipuli eius et furentur eum et dicant plebi: "Surrexit a mortuis", et erit novissimus error peior priore." Ait illis Pilatus: "Habetis custodiam; ite, custodite, sicut scitis." Illi autem abeuntes munierunt sepulcrum, signantes lapidem, cum custodia.
