The Tomb of Jesus is perhaps the most significant site in Christendom. Resurrected from te dead, Jesus provided the ultimate proof for his divinity. Its location is documented in the Gospels to be near the site of his crucifixion, and outside the city.
Since the 4th Century, that site has been identified at a spot that is today inside Jerusalem’s Old City. The church complex built over it is known as The Church of the Holy Sepulchre. It is one of the most visited sites in Israel, and perhaps the holiest site in the Christian world.
In 2009, my friend Amos Friedlin documented me guiding at the site and aired it in 4 short clips. Take a look:
Touring the Holy Sepulchre
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is open every day, from the morning to sunset. It’s focal points are the hill of crucifixion (The Golgotha) and the “Empty Tomb.” Most of the day, the church can be very crowded. Being so, it is best to visit it before closing. It is also highly recommended to tour it with a guide to get full appreciation of the site.
