Jesus Christ’s ‘tomb’ opens to public after restoration

mrpops09_CMOD_mrpops09_CMOD_ Chief Moderator
A burial tomb believed to have held the body of Jesus Christ before his resurrection will open to the public on Wednesday. The tomb at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem underwent nine months of restoration.

A team from the National Technical University of Athens (NTU) carried out intensive restoration on a small structure known as the ‘Edicule’ (little house) within the church, containing the tomb and burial bed believed to have once held the body of Jesus Christ.

During the restoration the team removed a slab of marble that had been placed over the bed in 1555AD to prevent pilgrims removing rocks from the holy site, exposing the original limestone shelf for the first time in centuries.

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    This is a pretty intense place - not one, not two, but three Christian churches administer it (and often engage in massive brawl fist fights with one another)
    "...Say, 'GOD is sufficient for me.' In Him the trusters shall trust." (Quran 39:38)
  • I wonder if Jesus would have assigned any importance to the place? 
    People in this world look at things mistakenly, and think that what they do not understand must be the void. This is not the true void. It is bewilderment.

    If the tomb doesn't appear natural as it once was how do we know it's there?

    Jesus didn't assign any importance to pretty much anything in this life, aside from, interestingly, doing things for other people
