Arimathea

ARIMATHEA (âr'ĭ-ma-thē'a). The city of the Joseph who buried the body of Jesus in his own new tomb near Jerusalem (Matt.27.57; Mark.15.43; Luke.23.51; John.19.38). The location of Arimathea is in doubt but is conjectured to be Ramathaim-Zophim, the Ramah of Samuel’s residence, in the hill country of Ephraim, about twenty miles (thirty-three km.) NW of Jerusalem and six miles (ten km.) SE of Antipatris.
