John 19:38-42 (NRSV)

38After these things, Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, though a secret one because of his fear of the Jews, asked Pilate to let him take away the body of Jesus.  Pilate gave him permission; so he came and removed his body.  39Nicodemus, who had at first come to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, weighing about a hundred pounds.  40They took the body of Jesus and wrapped it with the spices in linen cloths, according to the burial custom of the Jews.  41Now there was a garden in the place where he was crucified, and in the garden, there was a new tomb in which no one had ever been laid.  42And so, because it was the Jewish day of Preparation, and the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there.
