Who buried Jesus?

Joseph of Arimathaea

When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple: He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed. Matthew 27:57-60

Joseph of Arimathaea ... took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre. Mark 15:43-46

Joseph ... of Arimathaea ... took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre. Luke 23:50-53

Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus

Joseph of Arimathaea ... took the body of Jesus. And there came also Nicodemus.... Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. There laid they Jesus.... John 19:38-42

The Jews and their rulers

For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him. And though they found no cause of death in him, yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain. And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulchre. Acts 13:27-29
