That he died not as other men in that cafe do. 4o. There were allo women look- ingon afar off : among whom was Mary Magdelene, and Mary the mother ofJames the lofs, and of Jo- fes and Salome ; 41. Who allo when he. was in Galilee, followed him, and miniflred unto him ; and many other women which came up with him unto Jerufalem. 42. And now when the even was come, (be- caufe it was the preparation, that is, the day before the fabbath:) 40. Note, It is likely that it's Yames then is called the Brother ofChrift, that is, he that is called games the /,/ / : for Yofs and fames are called brethren, as here, fò Matti,. r3. 55. But whether Littlenefs of Seccare or Dignity be meant, irisuncertain. 43. Jofeph of Arimathea, an ho- nourable counfeller, which alto wait- ed for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body ofJefus. 44. And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead : and calling unto him the cen- turion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead. 45. And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Jofeph. 45. Note, He feared left he fhould feem dead and be taken down alive, till inquiry refolved the doubt. 46. And he brought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a fepulchre which was hewen out of a rock, and rolled a ftone unto the door of the fepulchre. 47. And Mary Magdelene and Mary the mother of Jofes beheld where he was laid. 46. Note, fofeph Chewed greatboldnefs and faith, in owning Chrift fo openly when he was dead: and fodid Nicodemus who joined with him. 2.

Chrift's bring buried in fine Li- nen, makeih it not our duty, nor a fin to be buried in Woollen ; yea, tho' it had been the greateft Enemy of Chrift, thatin oppofition to him, had made the new Law which dothcorn mand it. The Grave was allo fealed and watched. Chrift's Burial hath in force fort fanûihed the Grave to true Believers.

Andthey faid among them- felves, Who Bull roll us away the hone from the door ofthe fepulchre ? 4. And when they looked, they faw that the ílone was rolled alay) for it was very great. 4. The Angel had before done it, and fright- ed away the Soldiers. 5. And entring into the fepul- chre, they faw a young man fitting on the right fide, clothed in a long white garment ; and they were af- frighted. 6.
