(RT) — Further details of the supposed burial tomb of Jesus Christ have been revealed by researchers in Jerusalem. The limestone slab where Christ is said to have been placed has been exposed along with part of the original wall.
The research team working at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre detected the original limestone shelf, known as a “burial bed”, last week but have now been able to reveal the fully intact “Holy Rock” in full, according to National Geographic.
"I'm absolutely amazed. My knees are shaking a little bit because I wasn't expecting this," Fredrik Hiebert, one of the archaeologists involved in the project said.
