Garden Tomb - Introduction
There is no question that Jesus was crucified and buried in Jerusalem. However, there is great debate amongst the different Christian denominations and academic scholars, where exactly in Jerusalem and the Old City was Jesus Crucified and where lays the Tomb of Jesus from whence he rose. The Garden Tomb is a beautiful garden situated right outside the Old City Walls of Jerusalem. Traditionally, Protestants, evangelists, Anglicans and other reform churches believe this to be the site of Christ’s crucifixion, burial & resurrection. This is opposed to the belief, held by many Catholic, orthodox and Coptic denominations which deem the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to be the site of crucifixion and tomb of Jesus Christ. Notwithstanding, the Garden Tomb is an important and Holy site for millions of Christians and is a wonderful place to gather, contemplate, pray and remember the teachings of Jesus and his destiny while giving a sense of what the Tomb of Jesus may have looked like over 2000 years ago.
