And having bought a linen cloth, he took him down, wrapped him in the linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb that had been cut out of a rock. And he rolled a stone in front of the entrance of the tomb. Bible see other translations

“laid him in a tomb.” This was just before sunset Wednesday evening, so it was Nisan 14.
