Bible Cities: Arimathea
Arimathea was a city in the hills of Judea, northwest of Jerusalem.

Map of Ancient Arimathea


Ancient Arimathea - Map of New Testament Israel AR`I-MA-THE`A (lion dead to the Lord), A city of Judea, Luke 23:51 ; Matt, 27:57. Doubtless the Ramah of 1 Sam. 1:1.
http://www.bible-history.com/geography/ancient-israel/arimathea.html


Arimathea in Easton's Bible Dictionary a "city of the Jews" (Luke 23:51), the birth-place of Joseph in whose sepulchre our Lord was laid (Matt. 27:57, 60; John 19:38). It is probably the same place as Ramathaim in Ephraim, and the birth-place of Samuel (1 Sam. 1:1, 19). Others identify it with Ramleh in Dan, or Rama (q.v.) in Benjamin (Matt. 2:18).

Arimathea in Fausset's Bible Dictionary (Matthew 27:57). The birthplace or abode of the rich man Joseph, who, by Pilate's leave, which he "boldly" craved, casting away the "fear" which had previously kept him from open discipleship (Mark 15:43; John 19:38), buried our Lord's body in his own "new tomb" at Jerusalem. Arimathea, a "city of the Jews" (Luke's vague expression for the Gentiles, to whom no more precise information seemed needful: Luke 23:51) is possibly identical with Ramah, Samuel's birthplace, called Armathaim in the Septuagint (1 Samuel 1:1; 1 Samuel 1:19); but many associate it with Ramleh, on the road from Jaffa to Jerusalem.

Arimathea in Naves Topical Bible Also called RAMAH. A town five miles north of Jerusalem Mt 27:57; Mr 15:43; Lu 23:51; Joh 19:38

Arimathea in Smiths Bible Dictionary (heights). Mt 27:57; Lu 23:51; Joh 19:38 St. Luke calls it "a city of Judea." It is identified by many with the modern Ramleh.

Arimathea in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ar-i-ma-the'-a (Arimathaia): "A city of the Jews," the home of Joseph in whose sepulchre the body of Jesus was laid. Its identity is the subject of much conjecture. The Onomasticon of Eusebius and Jerome identifies it with Ramathaim-Zophim in the hill-country of Ephraim (1 Sam 11), which is Ramah the birthplace and burial-place of Samuel (1 Sam 1:19; 25:1), and places it near Timnah on the borders of Judah and Dan. G. A. Smith thinks it may be the modern Beit Rima, a village on an eminence 2 miles North of Timnah. Others incline to Ramallah, 8 miles North of Jerusalem and 3 miles from Bethel (Mt 27:57; Mk 15:43; Lk 23:51; Jn 19:38).

Arimathea Scripture - John 19:38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave [him] leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.
