Mark 15:42-46

A. 42 And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counseller, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came,

B. and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.

C. 44 And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead:

C’. and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.

B’. 45 And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body

A’. to Joseph.

2A. 46 And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock,

2B. and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.

2A’. 47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.

Note: the passage confirms that Jesus was dead and securely buried.
