NET © Notes

tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

tn The term σινδών (sindwn) can refer to a linen cloth used either for clothing or for burial.

tn In the Greek text this pronoun (αὐτόν, auton) is masculine, while the previous one (αὐτό, auto) is neuter, referring to the body.

tn That is, cut or carved into an outcropping of natural rock, resulting in a cave-like structure (see L&N 19.26).

tc Codex Bezae (D), with some support from 070, one Itala ms, and the Sahidic version, adds the words, “And after he [Jesus] was laid [in the tomb], he [Joseph of Arimathea] put a stone over the tomb which scarcely twenty men could roll.” Although this addition is certainly not part of the original text of Luke, it does show how interested the early scribes were in the details of the burial and may even reflect a very primitive tradition. Matt 27:60 and Mark 15:46 record the positioning of a large stone at the door of the tomb.

tn Or “laid to rest.”
