- A nice guy named Joseph approaches Pilate and requests Jesus's body.
- He takes it down from the cross, wraps it in a burial shroud, and places it in a stone tomb by itself.
- The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee (recall 8:2-3 and 23:49) follow Joseph to see where the body is located. Then they get what they need to prepare the body for burial.
- But first, the sabbath.
