On a 2 acre plot of Land in Jerusalem
is what many believe to be a viable spot
for the burial spot of Jesus.
The Gospel of John says,
"... at the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden ... "
(John 19: 38; 41)If you have a garden, you need lots of water,
especially in the dry Middle East.
The Garden Tomb contains one of the oldest and largest cisterns in Jerusalem.
It's 2,000 years old and holds about 200,000 gallons of water.
"So the tomb we have here is a typical of a first century
Jewish rolling stone tomb.
It's dated at least 2,000 years, possibly older."

Whether the actual death and burial site of Jesus
is at this site or at the church of the Holy Sepulcher-
this Easter Day 2017, we are reminded that we
do not worship the site but the person.
Giving thanks for the truth
of His Word that endures forever.
He is Risen!
He is Risen indeed!
