In this 14 minute podcast, Anna Mitchell of the Sonrise Morning Show interviews Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio about his numerous visits to the empty tomb of Jesus Christ in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.
The Gospel of John tells us that, after the body of Jesus was taken from the cross, it was laid in a new tomb, close to the place where he was crucified. Yet, when people visit the Holy Land, they are surprised to find out that the tomb is only a stones throw away from the top of Golgotha. Dr. Italy shares what it is like to visit these places which are both located inside the same massive building, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built in the fourth century by the Roman Emperor Constantine’s mother. St. Helena, and reconstructed in the 12th century by the Crusaders.
This podcast is the third in a series on Holy Week in the Holy Land.
