Arimathea

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
A "city of the Jews" (Luke 23:51 ), the birth-place of Joseph in whose sepulchre our Lord was laid (Matthew 27:57,60 ; John 19:38 ). It is probably the same place as Ramathaim in Ephraim, and the birth-place of Samuel (1 Samuel 1:1,19 ). Others identify it with Ramleh in Dan, or Rama (q.v.) in Benjamin (Matthew 2:18 ).
