Kim Lawton of PBS’s Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly writes in Where was Jesus buried?
According to Bridge, the Garden Tomb is not trying to set up a competition with the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. "There’s no doubt that historically, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, has the evidence on its side," Bridge said. "What we say we have here is something that matches the Bible description."
And for him, Bridge said it ultimately doesn’t matter where the actual place was, because he believes Jesus rose from the dead three days after the crucifixion. "On that score, us and the Holy Sepulchre would be exactly the same, telling the same story, but on a different site," he said.
Morozowich agreed. He said his faith teaches that during the Easter season, Christians should focus more on what Jesus did, rather than on where he may have done it.
Does it matter? Keep in mind the limestone found on the shroud identified by optical crystallographer Joseph Kohlbeck as travertine aragonite with the chemical signature similar to limestone samples from both ancient Jerusalem tombs collected by archaeologist Eugenia Nitowski.
There is an interesting PBS video at Religion News Service on the website where this article is carried.
