Jesus is taken down from the Cross
Joseph of Arimathaea asked Pontius Pilate to let him remove the body of Jesus. Pilate gave permission, so they came and took it away. Nicodemus came as well and brought a mixture of Myrrh and Aloe's, weighing about a hundred pounds. They took the body of Jesus and wrapped it with the spices in linen clothes. (John 19 38-40)
