Question:

When was Jesus buried, on Wednesday, on Thursday or on Friday? I found articles on the internet where it is said that on Thursday!

Lord Jesus was buried in the Preparation Day (Friday)

The Gospel of Luke tells us the following:

It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour, because the sun was obscured; and the veil of the temple was torn in two. And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, “Father, INTO YOUR HANDS I COMMIT MY SPIRIT.” Having said this, He breathed His last. Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he beganpraising God, saying, “Certainly this man was innocent.” And all the crowds who came together for this spectacle, when they observed what had happened, began to return, beating their breasts. And all His acquaintances and the women who accompanied Him from Galilee were standing at a distance, seeing these things. And a man named Joseph, who was a member of the Council, a good and righteous man (he had not consented to their plan and action), a man from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who was waiting for the kingdom of God; this man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. And he took it down and wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid Him in a tomb cut into the rock, where no one had ever lain. It was the preparation day, and the Sabbath was about to begin. (Luke 23:44-54)(NASB)

The Preparation Day was the day of preparation for the Sabbath day, because the Sabbath day was after it, that is Saturday. In fact, on Friday at sunset, it is already considered that the Sabbath began. Jesus was buried Friday.
