The Garden Tomb:​​ This ancient tomb a short distance from the Damascus Gate in the western wall of​​ the​​ Old City of Jerusalem. ​​ Joseph of Arimathea had it​​ hewn out of the rock face, and is​​ accurately assumed​​ to be the tomb where Yeshua’s body​​ was laid to rest;​​ and from​​ where He was resurrected.   ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ 

(See Mark 15:42–16:8;​​ &​​ Isaiah 53:9)



The Garden Tomb.

Which is​​ in​​ Conrad Schick Street,​​ Jerusalem,​​ outside the old city wall near the Damascus Gate,​​ on the north-western side of the Old City of Jerusalem. ​​ 

(Some believe that the crucifixion and burial took place inside the city walls. ​​ The Bible clearly records that it had to take place outside the city walls; and this is also reflected in the Old Testament.)

The Garden Tomb which​​ Joseph of Arimathea​​ had​​ cut out of​​ the​​ rock-face,​​ intended for his own future use,​​ and in​​ which he placed Jesus’ body;​​ and from which Jesus​​ arose. ​​​​ It was unearthed in 1867,​​ and in​​ so doing, a section of the stone front was broken, hence the patched up section.​​ The door leads into a small type of entry chamber, just to the right is​​ the carved out, slightly raised stone section for a body.  ​​​​  ​​​​ 

I stood in there with an enormous sense of awe and significance that this was actually​​ the tomb which Joseph of Aramathea gave for Jesus’ body to be taken from the cross, which was not far away, and placed in here. ​​ It was amazing​​ just​​ to​​ stand and reflect that​​ the whole magnificent​​ event​​ took place​​ here,​​ the​​ burial and rising from the dead​​ of Y’shua (Jesus). ​​ It was awe inspiring to think about this very spot being​​ the​​ beginning of​​ the world​​ becoming a different place, and offering an eternal future for faithful believers. ​​ 

The garden area is​​ owned by and constantly​​ cared for by English people who take turns​​ to stay in Jerusalem. ​​ The information shop is always staffed, and the garden cared for.

Matthew 27:57-61 ​​​​ ‘As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. ​​ Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. ​​ Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that had been cut out of the rock. ​​ He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away. ​​ Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting opposite the tomb.’
