John 19:41-42

Context
19:41 Now at the place where Jesus 1  was crucified 2  there was a garden, 3  and in the garden 4  was a new tomb where no one had yet been buried. 5  19:42 And so, because it was the Jewish day of preparation 6  and the tomb was nearby, 7  they placed Jesus’ body there.

1 tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 sn See the note on Crucify in 19:6.

3 tn Or “an orchard.”

4 tn Or “orchard.”

5 tn Grk “been placed.”

6 sn The day of preparation was the day before the Sabbath when everything had to be prepared for it, as no work could be done on the Sabbath.

7 sn The tomb was nearby. The Passover and the Sabbath would begin at 6 p.m., so those who had come to prepare and bury the body could not afford to waste time.
