True Burial Site of Christ – Church of the Holy Sepulcher or the Garden Tomb?

Which is the authentic site of the tomb of Jesus Christ?

Bible literalists (meaning: Protestants) flock to the site in the Holy Land known as “the Garden Tomb”, despite a huge body of very substantial evidence to the contrary. Why? Because today, that site most closely resembles the general description of the place, as written in the Bible.

Traditionalists (meaning: Catholics and Orthodox) prefer the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, which was originally built on a site that was located, excavated, and designated during the 4th century, by St. Helena, the mother of the Roman Emperor, Constantine. There’s also a huge amount of historical and archeological evidence indicating that the Church of the Holy Sepulcher is precisely what and exactly where it claims to be.

So what is a person to do? Believe one’s own personal interpretation of scripture, even if it’s sure to lead to the wrong destination … or go with the facts, based on all the testimony of those who have gone before … including the scriptures?

I guess it all depends on what you’re looking for.

Certainly worth thinking (and praying) about!
