I have the answer, but I don't assume that it is a simple question... I suppose I am curious as to the reason for the inquiry. Matt. 27:57, 58; Mark 15:43

Joseph of Arimathe'a was a member of the Sanhedrin so it was easier for him to request the body from Pilate than it would be for another disciple. Before Jesus death he was a disciple in secret for fear of the Jews, but afterwards he apparently took courage and let it be known.

Luke 23:50 And, look! a man named Joseph, who was a member of the Council, a good and righteous man— 51 this [man] had not voted in support of their design and action—he was from Ar·i·ma·the′a, a city of the Ju·de′ans, and was waiting for the kingdom of God;

John 19:38 Now after these things Joseph from Ar·i·ma·the′a, who was a disciple of Jesus but a secret one out of [his] fear of the Jews, requested Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave him permission. Therefore he came and took his body away.

oh Mama - if and when you die, hopefully according to what is normal practice and the law only some very close relative will be allowed to claim and remove your body for burial - some of my posts are closely linked and the clue to this one can be found in 'Forsaken and Forgotten' - twinc
