tomb of jesus

Image result for tomb of jesus

The marble slab above the purported tomb of Jesus at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem has been removed for the first time in centuries. After His crucifixion, Jesus' body was placed into a new tomb owned by Joseph of Arimathea. The body would have been placed on a limestone slab inside the tomb. The original limestone lies underneath layers of marble added later for safe keeping.

The Church of the Holy Sepulcher was built over the site of Jesus' death and resurrection in 325 AD by Emperor Constantine with assistance from his mother, Helena.

Should be interesting to see what they find. And of course ... what they don't.  ;-)
