Lent Journey


Joseph’s was an important member of the Sanhedrin, and a secret disciple of Jesus. His story is recorded in all four the gospels, and is a wonderful example of doing what we can, and like him to live in the hope of the kingdom.
‘Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man, who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathaea and he was waiting for the kingdom of God. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rick, one in which no one had yet been laid. It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin. The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes.’-Luke 23:50-56
