John 19 : 38-42
The Burial of Jesus 38
Afterward Joseph of Arimathea, who had been a secret disciple of Jesus (because he feared the Jewish leaders), asked Pilate for permission to take down Jesus' body. When Pilate gave permission, Joseph came and took the body away.
With him came Nicodemus, the man who had come to Jesus at night. He brought about seventy-five pounds 
of perfumed ointment made from myrrh and aloes.
Following Jewish burial custom, they wrapped Jesus' body with the spices in long sheets of linen cloth.
The place of crucifixion was near a garden, where there was a new tomb, never used before.
And so, because it was the day of preparation for the Jewish Passover 
and since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there.
