The Garden Tomb

When I was in Israel I went a location where it’s possible Jesus was buried after his crucifixion. This is a photo of that tomb, which at least is of the type that would have been used during that time. The tour guide at the Garden Tomb was excellent and said something very important to our group. He said that doesn’t matter whether or not this was the actual tomb of Jesus because the tomb itself is not important. Jesus is important. Jesus is not only important, but he is no longer in the tomb, which is a fact of utter importance.

“Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And they remembered his words, And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.” -Luke 24:1-9

“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” -1 Corinthians 15:3-4

Day 166: The Garden Tomb

“And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just: (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God. This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.” -Luke 23:50-53
