Exodus 13:19 :
Also Jesus had to be buried among the evildoers as per scripturam, whereas Joseph had to be buried in Israel in virtue of the his oath.
But who (in Exodus) is the buried person [=the Patriarch Joseph] becomes in Mark the person who buries [=Joseph from Arimathea].
And Richard Carrier had already noted the possible midrashical source behind ''Joseph of Arimathea'':

The patriarch Joseph is buried the first time in Egypt, and the second time in Israel.
Jesus Nazarene is buried the first time in the Empty Tomb, and then he appears again in the Galilee.
So the Empty Tomb may be allegory of the same ''Egypt''.
But then who is interested only about the physical body of Jesus (the body who is buried in the Empty Tomb/''Egypt'') is the enemy of who wants that the body appears again in the Galilee/''Israel'':
therefore the ''women'' are the enemy of ''Moses'': the Egyptians and Pharao.
