Arimathea

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Arimathea : 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 (which see) in Benjamin (Matthew 2:18).
