BREAKING: Major Biblical Discovery Rocks the Globe [PHOTOS]

This is something I never thought I would see in my lifetime… the limestone slab where Jesus was lain out after his crucifixion has been pictured for the first time. As a Christian, this borders on miraculous for me and definitely puts me in awe. This was where Christ was resurrected. Seeing this now almost feels prophetic.

The slab encased in marble, since at least 1555 AD, was exposed during restoration work last week. After a grueling 60-hour analysis, experts say part of the tomb is still intact. They found a limestone burial shelf and a second marble slab with a cross carved into its surface. The tomb has now been resealed and may not be opened for hundreds of years. This whispers of the Book of Revelation. I don’t believe in coincidence – there is a reason this has come to pass at this time.

The limestone slab where Jesus Christ’s body is said to have been laid out after his crucifixion has been pictured for the the first time.

The historic tomb where he is said to have been ‘rested’ and his body anointed was opened last week for the first time since at least 1555 AD – and scientists were given 60 hours of access before it was resealed.

After removing the marble slab that encased the tomb, scientists at the University of Athens and National Geographic admitted they were stunned to find a limestone burial shelf and a second marble slab with a cross carved into its surface.

This took place at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City of Jerusalem, according to National Geographic. The burial slab was enclosed in a structure known as the Edicule – a word derived from the Latin term aedicule meaning ‘little house.’ With its stone staircases, gilded ornamentation and many dark chambers, the church is one of Christianity’s holiest shrines.

Christian tradition says Christ’s body was laid on a slab cut from a limestone cave after his crucifixion by the Romans. He was resurrected three days after his death, according to scripture, and the women who came to anoint his body said no remains were found. I can’t even imagine the awe at being witness to this excavation. Just stunning.

The tomb where Jesus Christ's body is said to have been rested was unveiled last week for the first time in centuries. As researchers continued their work over the course of 60 hours, another marble slab with a cross carved into its surface was exposed (pictured). Inscribed with a Christian cross, this broken marble slab may date to the Crusader era
