Where was Jesus Crucified, Buried and Resurrected?

In 2007 my wife, Lynn, and I toured Israel with a group of about 300 members and spouses of Aglow International.

Aglow began as a US based Christian Women’s Organization and over time broadened to a worldwide Christian organization open to men and teens as well as women.

Anyway, the trip was truly a pilgrimage to the Holy Land and a once-in-a-lifetime spiritual experience.

I’ll be describing our tour in a series of posts over the next several weeks but Easter seemed the perfect time to begin.

Actually, our tour began at the very same point that this series of posts will begin and that was a visit to The Garden Tomb and, several days later, the Church of the Holy Seplechure.  Each of these two sites has scholars and other followers who believe it is the true site of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

It was an unbelievably moving experience to stand in the space at each of these locations and contemplate what it must have been like as the events of the Crucifixion, burial and Resurrection unfolded.

As I searched around for some video to illustrate these locations (I only took stills on the trip), I found an ideal video by CBN News.

Even though you will not be physically present, seeing these actual places and hearing the explanations for them will make the black and white pages of the biblical story come to life (I hope).

 

 

Well, what do you think?  Did the video make the biblical story more real?

Did it affect you, personally?

Leave a comment, PLEASE.

Thanks.

I appreciate it.
