Joseph the Necromancer

February 16, 2015

“It occurs to me, regarding the Book of Mark, you know, when Joseph of Arimathea, a member of the Jewish Council, one who first voted to crucify Jesus then placed the killed messiah in his own tomb – I was thinking, could Joseph have taken the body out again?

Then in the dead of night? A later redaction of the gospel added the line Joseph was “Looking for the Kingdom of God.”

Maybe he was. Maybe Joseph had a very special interest in the Kingdom. He might have had an idea exactly where it was. The devoted and respected man could have wanted to know so badly, he risked making himself unclean for Passover and handling a corpse. What tale might he have told to avoid scandal?”
