Possible site of the garden tomb of Joseph of Arimathea. Some modern prophets have felt that the Savior’s body was laid in the tomb pictured here.
Significant Events: After the Savior died on the cross, His body was placed in a new tomb cut out of rock (Matt. 27:57–60). On the third day, several women went to the tomb and found that the Savior’s body was not there (Matt. 28:1; John 20:1–2). The Apostles Peter and John also went to the tomb and saw that the Savior’s body was gone (John 20:2–9). The resurrected Savior appeared to Mary Magdalene (John 20:11–18).
