The Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem has been in the news this week. Archaeologists have been examining the tomb that is within the Edicule of the Tomb. National Geographic is chronicling the work of the archaeologists as they complete their work. The opening of the tomb is being done during the renovation process of the shrine.
These two pictures were used in a post about the repairs by Ferrell Jenkins. See: Some Repair Photos at the Holy Sepulcher
The repairs had just recently started at the time I took the pictures. I hope to return again next year to see how the renovated structure looks.
His post contains some good information about the investigations at the site.

One last picture, here is the entrance to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. This is a very interesting building and someday I will share more information about it, including the story of the immovable ladder.
I am looking forward to learning more about what the archaeologists found in the Edicule. I am sure that we will hear more after the data is analyzed.
