Went to Pilate.
For the body
οὗτος προσελθὼν τῷ Πειλάτῳ ᾐτήσατο τὸ σῶμα τοῦ Ἰησοῦ,
Luke said that this Joseph went to Pilate (οὗτος προσελθὼν τῷ Πειλάτῳ). He asked for the body of Jesus (ᾐτήσατο τὸ σῶμα τοῦ Ἰησοῦ). Mark, chapter 15:43-45, said that Joseph went boldly to Pilate (τολμήσας εἰσῆλθεν πρὸς τὸν Πειλᾶτον). He asked for the body of Jesus (καὶ ᾐτήσατο τὸ σῶμα τοῦ Ἰησοῦ), but Mark had a more expanded conversation between Joseph and Pilate. John, chapter 19:38, simply had this short statement about going to Pilate, without any comment from Pilate. Matthew, chapter 27:58, said that this Joseph of Arimathea went to Pilate (οὗτος προσελθὼν τῷ Πειλάτῳ). He asked for the body of Jesus (ᾐτήσατο τὸ σῶμα τοῦ Ἰησοῦ). Then Pilate ordered or commanded that the body be given to Joseph (τότε ὁ Πειλᾶτος ἐκέλευσεν ἀποδοθῆναι). Thus, the body of Jesus left the control of the Roman and the Jewish authorities. However, there was no mention of the bodies of the other two robbers who had been crucified with Jesus. Would you want the body of Jesus?
