Duccio's Maesta

Central panel: the Passion

22: Entombment

  The best match here is Luke:

And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just: (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God. This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.   And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid. And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on. And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid. (Luke 23 v 50 - 55)

Note: few artistic representations go for a sepulchre as a sort of rocky cave with a large rolling stone. Most, as with Duccio, go for an outdoor scene with a sarcophagus, which makes it easier to depict.
