Church of the Holy Sepulchre

QUESTION: Church of the Holy Sepulchre

ANSWER:

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is located in the ancient city of Jerusalem. As large as a football field, the church was originally built in the 4th century AD to cover the locations of Christís crucifixion (Calvary or Golgotha) and burial (the sepulcher of Joseph of Arimathea). Based on ancient pilgrimage evidence and new evidence under the ceremonial flooring, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is considered a credible historical site.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre was built over an excavated hill where the traditional Rock of Calvary had been marked by early Christian pilgrims. On the other end of the church is the underground cave that was identified as the family tomb of Joseph where Christ was buried. The huge Church of the Holy Sepulchre is actually three separate churches connected by halls, arches and rotundas. Both the Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches share responsibility over the site.

Evidence For Jesus - Go!

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
