“We know that this area was a Jewish cemetery at the time of Jesus,” said Jodi Magness, archaeology professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for Fox News.
The Church was built by Constantine, destroyed in 1.009 and rebuilt somewhere in middle of the 11th century.
Restoration workers stumbled upon the rock surface which Jesus was apparently rested upo on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.
Christians claim following his crucifixion, Jesus was laid on the slab, or “burial bed” and enclosed in a tomb before being resurrected and ascending to Heaven several days later.
Researchers from National Geographic continued investigations and their preliminary findings appear to confirm that portions of the tomb are still present today, having survived centuries of damage, destruction, and reconstruction of the surrounding Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem’s Old City”.
