And he, having bought a linen cloth and taking him down, wound him in the linen cloth and laid him in a tomb that had been hewn out of a rock. And he rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. Bible other translations

“laid him in a tomb.” This was just before sunset Wednesday evening, so it was the 14th of Nisan. [For more information on a Wednesday crucifixion and burial, see commentary on Matthew 12:40].
