Tomb of Jesus is much older than thought

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is now thought to date back more than 1,700 years.
The tomb, which many believe to be the final resting place of Jesus himself, was previously thought to date back around 1,000 years to the time of the Crusades.

Now though, new tests carried out by researchers at the National Technical University of Athens have revealed that the Church of the Holy Sepulchre actually dates back to around 345 CE.

Although the findings do not prove that Jesus really was buried at the site, the date seems to conform to the belief that the Romans built a monument on the site around 300 years after his death under the rule of Constantine, the first Christian emperor of Rome.

"This is a very important finding because it confirms that it was, as historically evidenced, Constantine the Great responsible for cladding bedrock of the tomb of Christ with the marble slabs in the edicule," said Antonia Moropoulou, chief scientific coordinator of the tomb's restoration works.

The tomb in which Jesus Christ may have been buried dates back nearly 1,700 years, scientists have discovered.

Tests carried out on the remains of a limestone cave in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, in Jerusalem, date it back to around 345 CE, National Geographic reported.

Previous evidence had only dated the tomb back 1,000 years, to the Crusader period.

Although it’s impossible to definitively say whether the tomb is the burial site of a Jew known as Jesus of Nazareth, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is largely accepted as the site of Christ's burial.

The research, carried out by the National Technical University of Athens, does not offer further evidence as to whether Jesus was actually buried in the tomb, but it is consistent with the historical belief that the ancient Romans constructed a monument at the site around 300 years after his death.

The New Testament says Jesus died either in 30 or 33 CE, but historical accounts suggest the Romans found and enshrined the tomb in 326 CE.

The dating puts the original construction of the tomb in the time of the rule of Constantine, the first Christian emperor of Rome, who began the empire’s transition to Christianity.

According to tradition, Constantine had the monument to Jesus constructed on what was believed to be his burial site.

A team of scientists has been carrying out restoration work on the site which involved opening and excavating the tomb, which has been sealed for centuries.

The scientists found the remains of a limestone bed that tradition states may have held the body of Jesus.
