‘Tomb of Christ’ Revealed to be Authentic

'Tomb of Christ' Revealed to be Authentic

While non-believers mock Jesus Christ and state that he’s non-existent, new evidence has shed light that the ‘Tomb of Christ’ is the real burial site of Christ, leading to more evidence of biblical truths.

Construction materials date to Roman times, suggesting the original holy site’s legacy has survived despite its destruction 1,000 years ago, National Geographic and the Christian Post has reported.

The Christian Post:

New scientific tests have reportedly confirmed that the tomb at Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre, believed to be where Jesus Christ was rested after the crucifixion, dates back to the 4th century, matching historical accounts.

National Geographic, which has been documenting the holy site as it completed major reconstruction works earlier this year, reported that mortar samples collected from between the original limestone surface of the tomb and a marble slab that covers it have been dated back to 345 A.D.

The revelations align with historical accounts that say that Romans discovered the tomb where Jesus’ body was laid before His Resurrection, and enshrined it somewhere around 326.

The article pointed out that some modern scholars had questioned the age of the tomb, given that the site has suffered earthquakes, fires, and violent attacks throughout the centuries, including being completely destroyed in 1009.

“While it is archaeologically impossible to say that the tomb is the burial site of an individual Jew known as Jesus of Nazareth, who according to New Testament accounts was crucified in Jerusalem in 30 or 33, new dating results put the original construction of today’s tomb complex securely in the time of Constantine, Rome’s first Christian emperor,” National Geographic reported.

The National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C., recently opened a 3-D exhibit, titled “Tomb of Christ: The Church of the Holy Sepulchre Experience,” which promises to transport viewers on a virtual tour of the holy site.

“Scientists exposed the original surface of the tomb and found the limestone burial bed where Christian tradition says the body of Jesus Christ was laid,” the 3-D exhibit explains.

“When you visit the exhibition, you’ll be able to virtually experience what it was like to explore this iconic plan and view newly revealed cave calls that haven’t been seen in centuries.”
