Because the residents of Jerusalem and their leaders did not recognize him or understand the words of the prophets that are read every sabbath, they fulfilled those words by condemning him. 28 Even though they found no cause for a sentence of death, they asked Pilate to have him killed. 29 When they had carried out everything that was written about him, they took him down from the tree and laid him in a tomb.
Who buried Jesus?
—Mark: Joseph of Arimathea
—Matthew: Joseph of Arimathea
—Luke: Joseph of Arimathea
—John: Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus
—Book of Acts: the enemies of Jesus
Yes, it is possible that the Synoptic authors knew that Nicodemus helped Joseph with the burial of Jesus. Nic allegedly brought along 100 pounds of spices for the burial! (That is four pounds more than the quantity of spices used in Herod the Great’s burial.) But for some bizarre reason, all three authors chose not to mention him. However, there is no (credible) way to harmonize the Gospels of Matthew and John with the Book of Acts: either friends/disciples buried Jesus or the enemies of Jesus buried Jesus.
Someone is wrong.
Bottom line: these books are not reliable sources of historical information.
