The Way of the Cross.
Station 13. Jesus is taken down from the Cross.
This Station represents the place where Christ's most sacred body was taken down from the Cross by Joseph and Nicodemus, and laid in the bosom of His weeping Mother.
Joseph of Arimathea a wealthy man and a high-ranking member of the Senhedrin, was making arrangements for the burial of Jesus. He was a disciple of Jesus and had not taken part in the plotting of the Senhedrin, but he had kept his faith in Christ a secret because he was afraid his colleagues on the Council would condemn him. Now, however, the time had come for him to proclaim his allegiance, regardless of the consequences. Returning to Jerusalem, he went to the praetorium and boldly asked Pilate for permission to take away the body of Jesus. The procurator was surprised to hear that Jesus was already dead; and he sent for the centurion whom he had assigned to supervise the crucifixion. When the captain arrived, he certified that the “King of Jews” had died several hours before, and Pilate, convinced by the testimony of this unbiased witness, gave Joseph permission to remove the body.
