One thought on “The Tomb of Jesus

  1. A very interesting tidbit about Christ’s burial tomb:

    The following is about Gehenna from the New World Encyclopedia:
    Originally it referred to a garbage dump in a deep narrow valley right outside the walls of Jerusalem where fires were kept burning to consume the refuse and keep down the stench. It is also the location where bodies of executed criminals, or individuals denied a proper burial, would be dumped. Gehenna or the Valley of the Sons of Hinnom was a literal place outside the city. It served as a garbage dump for the city and a disposal for bodies of individuals considered unworthy for proper burial. These would include criminals of various sorts. Fire was kept going in Gehenna to incinerate the trash and bodies thrown there.

    Now how do we read this scripture?

    Isaiah 53:9 And His grave was assigned with the wicked, and with the rich (Joseph of Aramethea’s borrowed tomb) in His death; although He had done no violence, nor was any deceit in His mouth.

    Praises be to our Beloved!
