and placed it in his [own] new tomb that he had cut in the rock. And he rolled a large stone to the entrance of the tomb [and] went away. Now Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were there, sitting opposite the tomb. Now [on] the next day, which is after the day of preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees assembled before Pilate, saying, "Sir, we remember that [while] that deceiver was still alive he said, 'After three days I will rise.' Therefore give orders that the tomb be made secure until the third day, lest his disciples come [and] steal him and tell the people, 'He has been raised from the dead,' and the last deception will be worse than the first." Pilate said to them, "You have a guard of soldiers. Go, make [it] as secure as you know how." So they went with the guard of soldiers [and] made the tomb secure [by] sealing the stone.

And Pilate was surprised that he was already dead, and summoning the centurion, asked him whether he had died already. read more.

And [after] purchasing a linen cloth [and] taking him down, he wrapped [him] in the linen cloth and placed him in a tomb that had been cut from the rock. And he rolled a stone over the entrance of the tomb. Now Mary Magdalene and Mary the [mother] of Joses saw where he was placed.

And behold, a man {named} Joseph, who was a member of the council, a good and righteous man (this man was not consenting to their plan and deed), from Arimathea, {a Judean town}, who was looking forward to the kingdom of God. This man approached Pilate [and] asked for the body of Jesus. read more.
And he took [it] down [and] wrapped it in a linen cloth and placed him in a tomb cut into the rock where no one had ever been placed. And it was the day of preparation, and the Sabbath was drawing near. And the women who had been accompanying him from Galilee followed [and] saw the tomb and how his body was placed.

But [when they] came to Jesus, after they saw he was already dead, they did not break his legs. read more.
But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and blood and water came out immediately. And the one who has seen [it] has testified, and his testimony is true, and that person knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe. For these [things] happened in order that the scripture would be fulfilled: "Not a bone of his will be broken." And again another scripture says, "They will look on [the one] whom they have pierced."

And Pilate allowed [it], so he came and took away his body. And Nicodemus--the one who had come to him formerly at night--also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes [weighing] about a hundred pounds.

Now [there] was a garden at the place where he was crucified, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one was yet buried. So there, on account of the day of preparation of the Jews, because the tomb was close by, they buried Jesus.
