Incredible Jesus find made during Holy Sepulchre restoration revealed

Scientists have been stunned after they uncovered incredible discoveries below the Church of the Holy Sepulchre while refurbishing the tomb where Jesus resurrected.

The Church is found in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem, and, according to traditions dating back to at least the fourth century, is home to the two holiest sites referenced in the Bible. It is said to have been built on top of the site known as Golgotha, where Jesus was crucified, as well as the empty tomb where he was buried and resurrected three days later.

Millions visit this holy site each year to get a first-hand look at these famous locations and so, in 2016, restoration work was carried out to stop the shrines from being damaged.

They were given just 60 hours to peer beneath the tomb for the first time in centuries.

Beneath a layer of fill, they found a piece of marble stamped with a cross from the time of the Crusades, deeper down, even older marble, from the time of Constantine.

At the bottom, they found the original limestone bed, confirming the existence of a burial cave.
