Je­sus Christ’s tomb opened for first time in cen­turies

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Preser­va­tion ex­perts have opened for the first time in at least two cen­turies what Chris­tians be­lieve is Je­sus Christ’s tomb in­side the Church of the Holy Sepul­chre in Jerusalem. Some of the his­toric work was wit­nessed by AFP pho­tog­ra­pher Gali Tib­bon who cap­tured im­ages of the site be­lieved to con­tain the rock upon which Je­sus was laid in around 33 AD as it was un­cov­ered as part of on­go­ing restora­tion at the site. A mar­ble slab cov­er­ing the site, among the holi­est in Chris­tian­ity, was pulled back for three days as part of both restora­tion work and ar­chae­o­log­i­cal anal­y­sis, ex­perts on the scene told AFP.
