about

Joseph of Arimathea, the graveside attendant to the
crucified Jesus, is one of the most mysterious figures in
the New Testament. The Gospels make no mention of
him during Jesus' early ministry. Then he steps out of the
shadows and takes centre stage at the pivotal moment
upon which the central mystery of Christianity is based.
He then seemingly disappears from Church history. The
‘Acts of the Apostles’ makes no mention of him and
neither do the Epistles. To the sceptical tradition this
disappearance suggests that no such person ever existed.


In this booklet Mark McGiveron assesses the
often-proposed theory that Joseph of Arimathea is
mythological and was created by the Gospel writers to
aid the narrative of the entombment of Jesus. The
present study thus represents a ‘back door’ entry to the
study of the historicity of the Gospels and in particular
the Passion accounts within them.
