A restoration team has exposed hidden layers of the site known as Jesus’ tomb — for the first time in centuries.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem marks the spot where tradition says Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected.
At the center of the church is a structure called the Edicule. Inside is a tiny room that the faithful believe houses the cave where Jesus was entombed.
For centuries, the room of the tomb has been covered in marble. Last week, experts removed some of the marble to see what’s underneath. A diverse cast of characters gathered to see what would be found.
“There was this wild group of priests and construction workers and police,” said writer Kristin Romey of National Geographic, which is documenting the restoration. “Everyone just had this incredible sense of anticipation.”

“Everyone just had this incredible sense of anticipation.”

Ok if this sentence had been used on any topic EXCEPT this one I would have made a funny comment.

National Geographic did a special in this and had a film team in the tomb filming the restoration. It was all very interesting but we should not let this take away from the Lord and what he has sacrificed for us. This upcoming Easter season is about the resurrection and accession of our Lord and Savior, and His promise of everlasting life.
