John 19:39-41 The Passion Translation (TPT)

39 Now Nicodemus, who had once come to Jesus privately at night, accompanied Joseph, and together they carried a significant amount[a] of myrrh and aloes to the cross. 40 Then they took Jesus’ body and wrapped it in strips of linen with the embalming spices[b] according to the Jewish burial customs. 41 Near the place where Jesus was crucified was a garden, and in the garden there was a new tomb where no one had yet been laid to rest.

Footnotes:

  1. John 19:39 Or “approximately one hundred pounds.” Some calculate this as Roman pounds weighing thirty kilograms. Others interpret the one hundred pounds to be closer to a liter, or less than one kilogram, which seems more appropriate considering the cost and weight of these valuable spices.
  2. John 19:40 This was the myrrh and aloes, which were embalming spices.
