Church of St. John 6: Jesus can be buried according to
custom. The deprivation of the civil rights of honor, which was connected with the punishment of crucifixion, is cancelled, 15:45.
By burying Jesus, Joseph of Arimathea is already higher in the divine plan of salvation than Pilate.
Joseph creates with the hermetic closure of the tomb, 15:46, the -alchemical- precondition for the new creation, the subsequent resurrection.
