The guide is obviously a man in love with Jesus. He made no pretense that we KNOW this is the place where Jesus was buried, he only points out the scriptural, historic, and geographic basis for the reasonable probability that it is - oft it is just like the original. The grounds are quiet and beautiful, the bookstore friendly (his... More

The Garden Tomb is my choice for the Crucifixion story. They provide guides who enhance the experience. We have had a communion service on my last two visits. This requires a little preplanning. The Tomb is Empty!~

The experience at the tomb was one I will never forget. Our group had a communion service here and every one of us was moved to tears. The area itself is beautiful with lovely grounds that rival many gardens. Volunteers run the place and it is obvious that they love their position. So glad we came here!

The place has special importance to christians but the negative point is the director with anti semitism agains jewish, in speciall anti-messianic jewish, all other works are right and nice persons. If you love Jesus as the jewish messiah, You cannot miss it place...

Altho this may not be the actual burial place of Christ, it's in a quiet garden setting and you can walk into a room hewn in the rock with places prepared for burial. It was interesting to walk the garden paths. Our tour group received communion at this location as well but I think that had been pre-arranged just for... More

While scholars debate the location of Jesus' crucifixion, burial, and subsequent resurrection, there are two sites in the city of Jerusalem to mark those events. The older site is the Church of the Holy Seplechre, which by the way you don't want to miss, but for a better visual of what the site looked like 2,000 years ago, make your... More

If you are looking for an example of some type of old tomb, this would be okay. Fairly small quick tour, easy to find and entry is on a voluntary contribution basis. I did not like that it was always presented by the guide as "could this be the tomb of Jesus?" kind of description. Not too mention that the... More

This place was the most peaceful of all the venues in Jerusalem. It is run largely by volunteers, who are so gracious!

I have no idea if this was the actual tomb that Jesus was entombed in, and it really doesn't matter. What it is though, is a real Jewish tomb from the era, and it was a very nice place to sit under a tree an reflect.

Of course, you need to go! It's where Jesus buried and rose again! But...it was hard to be reflective and pause when there were so many people there. I wish I could've had the place to myself, but of course, of course...that's not going to happen there!
