THIS WEEK ON "JERUSALEM

DATELINE," STEP INSIDE THE

PLACE BELIEVED TO BE WHERE

CHRIST WAS BURIED AND ROSE

AGAIN.

WE'LL TAKE YOU ON A TOUR OF

THE GARDEN TOMB.

AND THE MOVIE BEN-HUR IS A

HOLLYWOOD CLASSIC.

FOR SOME CHRISTIANS, IT HAS

BECOME AN EASTER FAVORITE.

WE'LL LOOK AT THE LIFE OF

THE MAN WHO MADE IT.

PLUS, MAKING UNLEVENED

PASSOVER BREAD, MATZAH, HAS

A SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE FOR

BOTH JEWS AND CHRISTIANS.

HELLO, AND WELCOME TO THIS

EASTER ANDPASSOVER EDITION

OF "JERUSALEM DALINE." I'M

JULIE STAAL, FILLING IN FOR

CHRIS MITCHELL.

THOUSAN OF CHRISTIANS

VISITED THE HOLY LAND THIS

WEEK TO CELEBRATE EASTER.

IN JERUSALEM, TWO SITES

CLAIM TO BE THE PLACE WHERE

JESUS WAS BURIED AND ROSE

AGAIN.

BUT WHICH ONE IS AUTHENTIC.

CHRIS MITCHELL TAKES US IN

SEARCH OF AN ANSW

LOCATED NEAR THE HEART OF

JERUSALEM IS A PLACE CALLED

"THE GARDEN TOMB," WHICH

SOME BELIEVE WAS THE GARDEN

OF JOSEPH OF ARAMAIA.

SOME BELIEVE THIS IS WHERE

JESUS DIED, WAS BURIED, AND

ROSE FROM THE DEAD.

IN THIS CITY OF JERUSALEM,

BRITISH SYSTEMS BOUGHT THE

GARDEN YEARS AGO.

FOR YEARS THEY ALLOWED

VITORS HEREFREE OF

CHARGE.

RICHARD IS THE DIRECTOR OF

THE GARDEN TOMB.

WHAT WE DO HAVE HERE IN

THE GARDEN IS A PERFECT

REPRESENTATION OF THE

BIBLICAL ACCOUNT AT THE END

OF THE FOUR GOSPELS.

EVERYTHING IN THOSE FOUR

GOSPELS MATCHES WHAT WE SHOW

PEOPLE HERE IN THE G

Reporter: TODAY, NEARLY

A QF A MILLION

TOURISTS POUR IN HERE.

WE TOOK A TOUR OF WHATx

VISITORS GET WHEN COMEx

TO THE GARDENMENT.

xARDEN.

WE NT OUT THE BASIC

GEOGRA THELE.

IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA OF

WHERE JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED,

THERE WAS A GARDEN WHO

BELONGED TO A RICH MAN.

Reporter: WE CAME FIRST

TO THE PLACE THE BIBLE CALLS

GOLGOTHA.

AND THE BOOK OF MATTHEW SAYS

THAT IS A PLACE O A SKULL.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN

QUESTIONS PEOPLE ASK YOU

TY COME HERE?

SOME OF THE MAIN

QUESTIONS, ESPECIALLY FROM

HRISTIAN CAN WE BE

ERTAINS THE PLACEWHERE JESUS DND WRE

HEAS RAISE TO LIFE?

PEOPLE OFTEN ASK HOW CO

RE ARE TWO PLACES, HERE

ANDHE HOLY SEP Rerter: THE QUE

ES BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE

THE CHURCH OF THE HOLYLY

SEPLACUR IS THE ACTUAL PLACE

OF THE RESURRECTION.

THE QUEEN OF HELENA HELPED

BUILD THE CHURCH IN 3,000

A.D.

THE ROMAN EMPEROR HADRIN

BUILT THE SITE BECAUSE LOCAL

CHRISTIANS VE VENORATED THE

SITE AS THE PLACE OF THE

GOSPEL.

IF YOU HAVE A GARDEN, YOU

NEED LOTS OF WATER,

ESPECIALLY IN THE DRY MIDDLE

EAST.

THE GARDEN TOMB CONTAINS ONE

OF THE OLDEST AND LARGEST

SICISTERNS IN JERUSALEM.

IT 2000 YEARS AND

HOLDS ABOUT 200,000 GALLONS

OF WATER.

SOTHEB WEAVE HERE

IS TYPAL OF AJESH ING STONE

TOMB.

> Reporter: IN THE

GARDEN, THE BIBLE ALSO S

THERE WAS A TOMB.

CARVED OUT OF SOLID

OCK.

IT IS AANMADE TOMB.

AHAT'S HOW THE BIBLE

DESCRIBES IT.

THIS ANNEL IS WHERE THE

STONEULD ASSESS, WHICH

WOULD ROLLED ACROSS THE

ENTRANCE.

FINALLY, THE MOST IMPORTANT

THING ABOUT TH TOMB ITSELF

IS THAT IT IS EMPTY.

SO LET'S GO INSIDE AND HAVE

A LO.

OKAY.

IN THIS DIRECTION WE'RE

LOOKING AT THE BURIAL

CHAMBER ITSELF.

WHAT YOU HAVE INSIDE THE

BURIAL CHAMBER ARE THESE TWO

AREAS WHERE A BODY WOULD BE

LAYING.

ONE JUST DOWN HERE, AND ONE

ON THIS SIDE.

Reporter: THE TOMB

ITSELF SEEMS TO FIT THEBLE

BUT WHETHER THE GARDEN TOMB

OR THE CHURCH OF THE HOLYLY

SEPLACUR IS THE HOLY SITE,

MANY

CHRISTIAN

PILGRIMS TAKE

WITH THEM A PROFOUND

AFFIRMATION OF EIR FAITH.

I'M A BIBLE TEACHER IN

THE STATES, AND

I HAVE SO

MANY PICTURES AND THINGS TO

GO BACK AND SHOW THEM.

I WANT TO TAKE SOME OF THIS

PASSION BACK THAT JESUS

IS

WHO HE SAYS HE IS.

AND HE IS THE SON OF GOD AND

HE DID WALK THIS EARTH.

Repter: AS PEOPLE

LOOK FORWARD TO EASTER,

THOSE AT THE GARDEN TOMB

STRESS, IT'S NOT THE PLACE.

IT'S THE PERSON.

THE THE BIBLE WRITERS

WERE NOT THAT INTERESTED IN

WHERE HE DIED.

BUT THEY WERE INTEREST IN

HIM, HIMSELF.

WE THE CHRISTIANS OF ALL OF

THE WORLD FAITH SERVE A

LIVING GOD, WHO HAS OVERCOME

DEATH.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE WANT

PEOPLE TO TAKE AWAY.

THE EASTER WEEKEND IS THE

WEEKEND THAT CHANGED THE

WORLD.

AND THE WEEKEND WHEN JESUS

DIED AND WAS BURIED AND ROSE

AGAIN, FOR ME AND FOR YOU.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

THESE ARE BUSY DAYS IN

JERUSALEM.

INSIDE THE OLD CITY WALLS

BEHIND ME, DISCOVERS HAVE

CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF

JEWISH AND CHRISTIAN

SCHOLARS.

MORE THAN 2,000 YEARS OF

HISTORY ARE RECORDED ON THE

WALLS OF ONE BUILDING

WHEREUPO WHERE PONTIUS

PILOT MAY HAVE JUDGED

JESUS.

JOHN WAGGI EXPLAINS.

Reporter: AT THE

WESTERN EDGE OF THE OLD

CITY, THE TOWER OF DAVID

STANDS ABOVE THE WALLS.

16 YEARS AGO, ARCHEOLOGISTS

FOUND A BUILDING.

THE RECORDS GO BACK BEFORE

THE TIME OF JESUS AND THE

ROMAN GOVERNOR WHO SENTENCED

HIM TO THE CROSS, PONTIUS

PILOT.

FOR YEARS EXPERTS SUGGESTED

THAT PILOT HANDED DOWN THE

DEATENCE ON THE OTHER

SIDE OF THE CITY, WHERE THE

ROMAN SOLDIERS WERE HOUSED.

BUT RECENT EVIDENCE

UNCOVERED HERE INDICATES

THAT THE LUXURY-LOVING PILOT

WAS MORE LIKELY TO HAVE

PRONOUNCED JUDGMENT HERE.

THIS ARCHEOLOGISTS HELPED

DISCOVER THE SITE IN 1999.

HE IS FAMILIAR WITH THESE

WALLS UNTIL THE BRITISH

A PRISON ON IT IN THE

1940s.

UNTIL NOW, THOSE

IMPRESSIVE WALLS ARE THE

ONLY REMAINS FROM HAROD'S

PALLATION.

PALACE.

WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED

TO THE SUPER STRUCTURES, TO

THE PALACE ITSELF.

MAYBE IT WAS DESTROYED IN

THE BIG REVOLT.

MAYBE WAS DESTROYED BY THE

ROMANS.

WE DON'T KNOW EXACTLY

WHERE JESUS WAS TRIED, WHERE

HE HAD HIS INTERVIEW BEFORE

PONTIUS PILOT.

BUT WE KNOW IT IS SOMEWHERE

IN HAROD'S PALACE.

Reporter: DAVID PELEGI

IS PASTOR OF CHRIST CHURCH,

JUST STEPS AWAY FROM THE

SITE.

WE KNOW THE PALACE OF

HAROD THE GREAT EVENTUALLY

BECAME ROMAN PROPERTY, AFTER

HAROD'S DEATH, AND EVERY

YEAR PONTIUS PILOT WOULD

COME FROM SESERIA, TO

JERUSALEM HERE, DURING THE

TIME OF PASS OVER, TO

OVERSEE THEECURITY OF THECITY, DURING THE FESTIVAL

THAT THE JEWS CALLED "THE

FEAST OF FREEDOM."

IT WAS AT THIS TIME, IF

THERE WAS GOING TO BE

TROUBLE, IT WOULD BE DURING

THE PASSOVER HOLIDAY.

Reporter: PELEGI SAYS

IN A WAY, THE TOWER OF DAVID

EENCOMPASSES THE ENTIRE

LIFE STORY OF JESUS.

THE SCHOLARS HAVE BEEN

SAYING THAT THE LIFE OF

JESUS BEGINS AT THE TOWER OF

DAVID, WHEN THE MAGITE COME

TO VISIT KING HAROD.

AND HIS LIFE ENDS BASICALLY

WHEN PONTIUS PILOT SENTENCED

HIM TO DEATH.

SO THERE IS SOME VERY

INTERESTING IRONY IN THIS

STORY.

Reporter: THIS ISRAELI

ARCHEOLOGIST IS STILL STRUCK

BY ITS POWER AND OP

OPULENCE.

IT IS LIKE AN UNION, YOU

PEEL IT, YOU PEEL IT, AND

YOU PEEL IT, AND IT NEVER

ENDS, AND THEN YOU CRY A

BIT.

BUT NOT TOO MUCH.

Reporter: PELEGI CALLS

THE TOWER THE BEST BUILDING

IN THE CITY.

AND SAYS TOURISTS WOULD BE

BEST TO START HERE.

WE

HAVE THE EXTRA BONUS

OF HAVING THE VERY PLACE

WHERE JESUS WAS SENT TO

EXETION BY PONTIUS PILOT.

THIS WILL HELP CHRISTIANS

BETTER VISUALIZE THOSE

MONUMENTOUS EVENTS.

AND JUST A COUPLE OF

MILES AWAY, THE MT. OF

OLIVES, WHERETURE SAYS

HEOME AGAIN.

JOHN WAGGI, CBN NEWS,

JERUSEM

OMING U LOOK AT WHAT

GOES INTO MAKING THE

UNLEVENED PASSOVER BREAD,

MATZAH.

ONE OF THE KEY ELEMENTS

IN THE PASSOVER SADER IS

LEVENED BREAD, KNOWN AS

MATZAH.

CHRIS MITCHELL TAKES A LOOK

AT HOW THEY MAKE THAT

BIBLICAL FOOD AND EXPLAINS

ITS SYMBOLISM.

Reporter: THE BIBL

CALLS I T BREAD OF

AFFLICTION,ENED BREAD,

OR MATZAH.

EVERY YEAR THEWISHPLE

ARE COMMANDED RETELL

THEIR STORY OF THEIR EXODUS

FROM EGYPT AND TO EAT EN

LEVENED BREAD.

BECAUSE THEY HAD TO LEAVE

VERY FAST, THEY DIDN'T HAVE

TOME LET THE BREAD RISE.

Reporter: MANYCTUALLY

LIKE IT.

GROCERY STORES LIKE THIS ONE

DEVOTE WHOLE SECTIONS TO

IT.

AND YOU CAN GET EGG, WHOLE

WHEAT, AND EVEN CHOCOLATE

MATZAH.

IT MUST BE MADE OF FLOUR

AND WATER ONLY.

IT IS NOT REGULAR FLOUR.

Reporter: ROY IS VISED

OF MATZAHAEF.

HE SAYS THE WHOLE PROCESS

MUST BE MADE IN 18 MINUTES.

BECAUSE THE MOMENT THE WATER

STARTS TOUCHING THE FLOUR,

IT STARTS RISING.

THE WHOLE PROCESS TAKES

NO LONGER THAN THREE, FOUR

MINUTES.

BUT EVERY 15 MINUTES, WE ARE

VOID TO HAVE ANY LEFTOVERS

OF LEVENEDDOUGH, WE HAVE TO

CLEAN THE MIXER SYSTEM.

Reporter: ROSSELL IS

THIRD GENERATION TO RUN THIS

BUSINESS.

IN THE BASEMENT HERE,

WHERE WE HAVE THE FLOUR, AND

THE DEFENSE FORCES USED TO

HIDE WEAPONS FROM THE

BRITISH MANDATE.

SINCE 1946, WE'VE BEEN HERE

MAKING MATZAH.

THE FACTORY WAS REFURBISHED

MANY TIMES.

Reporter: HERE THEY

MAKE ABOUT 20 TONS OF MATZAH

A DAY.

THEY WORKVERY DAY EXCEPT

ON THE SABBATH.

WE ARE EXPORTING TO OVER

35 COUNTRIES, TO ALL JEWISH

COMMUNITIES AROUND THE

WORLD.

FROM THE LARGE COMMUNITIES

IN NORTH AMERICA, TO EVEN

THELLEST COMMUNITY, ONE

PERSON IN WALLACE ISLAND.

AND HE IS ONE PERSON ON THELAND, AND WE SEND HIM

MATZAH EVERY YEAR.

BUT WE ALSO HAVE CHRISTI

COMMUNITIES BUYING MATZAH IN

COUNTRIES LIKE KOREA AND

SINGAPORE.

I'VE BEEN TOLD IN SOME

CHURCHES IT IS USED AS THE

HOLY BREAD.

Reporter: THE LAST

SUPPER WHAT HAVE BEEN A

OV SA WITH UNLEVENED

BREAD.

SOME EVEN SAY THAT THE

DESIGN OF THE MATZAH,

STRIPED AND PIERCED, IS

SYMBOLIC OF THE MESSIAH

HIMSELF.

YOUIGHT THINK WITH ALL OF

THIS MATZAH, THEY THE FAMILY

WOULD GET TIRED OF THE

MATZAH, BUT NOT SO.

THE HOLIDAY, OF COURSE,

MEANS A LOT TO US.

Reporter: ONE ISRAELI

COMPARED MATZAH AS A DATA

DRIVE, PASSING INFORMATION

FROM GENERATION TO

GENERATION.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, THE SPIRITUAL

JOURNEY BEHIND THE CREATION

OF A CLASSIC HOLLYWOOD

MOVIE, A LOOK AT THE LIFE

AND FAITH OF THE MAN WHO

WROTE BEN-HUR.

FOR MANY PEOPLE, WATCHING

THEMOVIE BEN-HUR HAS BECOME

AN EASTER TRADITION.

BUT THERE IS AN AMAZING

STORY BEHIND THE FILM.

AS WENDY GRIFFITH SHOWS US,

EVERYTHING ABOUT BEN-HUR IS

LARGER THAN LIFE.

Wendy: THE 1959

BLOCKBUSTER BEN-HUR MADE

HISTORY WITH A RECORD 11

ACADEMY AWARDS.

AND THE 1925 VERSION IS

MAKING A COMEBAC

WHAT

MANY MAY NOT KNOW,

HOWEVER, IS THAT HOLLYWOOD

DIDN'T CREATE THIS CLASSIC

STORY.

THE IDEA CAME FROM THE

BEST-SELLING NOVEL "BEN-HUR,

A TALE OF THE CHRIST,"

PUBLISHED IN 1880.

THE BOOK TELLS THE STORY OF

A LIFE ALTERING ENCOUNTER

BETWEEN A FIRST CENTURY

JEWISH PRINCE AND JESUS OF

NAZARETH.

THE AUTHOR BEHIND BEN-HUR IS

LOU WALLACE, A TRUE

RENAISSANCE MAN.

HE TRIED DIFFERENT

THINGS.

HE LOVED TO PAINT, HE LOVED

TO WRITE, HE LOVED TO DO

CREATIVE THINGS.

HELOVED THE MILITARY.

HE BECAME A PROSECUTING

ATTORNEY.

HE WAS IN THE LEGISLATURE

FOR A TERM.

Wendy: WALLACE SHOWED A

TALENT FOR WRITING EARLY IN

LIFE.

HE LEARNED ABOUT THE BIBLE

WHILE AT BOARDING SCHOOL.

WHILE HE DIDN'T CARE FOR

CHURCH, THE STORY OF THE

THREE WISEMEN FASCINATING

HIM.

LITTLE DID I DREAM THEN

WHAT THOSE VERSES WOULD

BRINE, THAT OUT OF THEM,

BEN-HUR WOULD BE EVOKED.

Wendy: HE FOUGHT IN THE

MEXICAN-AMERICAN WAR AND THE

CIVIL WAR, BECOMING THE

YOUNGEST MAJOR-GENERAL IN

THE UNION ARMY.

HE ALSO MARRIED AND HAD A

SON.

THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, HE

KEPT COMING BACK TO THE

BIBLICAL ACCOUNT OF THE

THREE WISEMEN.

SO HE DECIDED TO WRITE A

MAGAZINE ARTICLE ABOUT

THEM.

I HAD NO CONVICTIONS

ABOUT GOD OR CHRIST.

I NEITHER BELIEVED NOR

DISBELIEVED IN THEM.

AND YET WHEN THE WORK WAS

FAIRLY BEGUN, I FOUND MYSELF

WRITING WITH AWE.

Wendy: STILL, WALLACE

HAD MUCH TO LEARN ABOUT GOD,

AS HE FOUND OUT IN A CHANCE

ENCOUNTER WITH A WELL-KNOWN

ATHEIST, NAMED ROBERT

INGERSOL.

ROBERT KNEW FAR MORE

ABOUT THE BIENL.

BIBLE.

YOU DON'T PREACH AGAINST

SOMETHING AGAINST YOU KNOW

IT.

Wendy: THE TIME HAD

COME FOR WALLACE TO FORM HIS

OWN OPINION ON THE SUBJECT

OF RELIGION.

MY IGNORANCE OF IT WAS

PAINFULLY A SPOT OF DEEPER

DARKNESS IN TH THE

DARKNESS.

I WAS ASHAMED OF MYSELF.

HE REA REALIZED I HAVE

NO BUSINESS SUBMITTING THIS

INITIAL STORY FOR

PUBLICATION.

I NEED TO DO THE RESEARCH.

I NEED TO LEARN THE BIBLE.

Wendy: EARLY IN HIS

RESEARCH, WALLACE CREATED

THE FICTIONAL CHARACTER OF

JUDAH BEN-HUR, TELLING HOW

HE WITNESSED THE REAL LIFE

EVENTS, LEADING UP TO THE

DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF

CHRIST.

WALLACE SOON BEGAN TO SEE

GOD THROUGH THE EYES OF HIS

CHARACTER.

LONG BEFORE I WAS THROUGH

WITH MY BOOK, I BECAME A

BELIEVER OF GOD AND CHRIST.

Wendy: THIS IS THE

ORIGINAL STORY OF BEN-HUR,

650

PASHANDWRITTEN IN

PURPLE INK.

WHEN LOU WALLACE DELIVERED

THIS TO HARPER A BROTHERS

IN 1880, THEY HAD NO IDEA IT

WAS ABOUT TO MAKE PUBLISHING

HISTORY.

THE BOOK

BECAME THE

BEST-SELLING NOVEL OF THE

19th CENTURY.

IT HAS NEVER BEEN OUT OF

PRINT.

WHAT KIND OF IMPACT DID

BEN-HUR HAVE AN A POST-CIVIL

WAR COUNTRY.

IT JUST WAS THE RIGHT

BOOK AT THE RIGHT TIME.

PEOPLE WERE LOOKING FOR WAYS

TO RECONCILE, TO COME

TOGETHER.

THEY WERE EXPLORING, YOU

KNOW, HOW CAN THERE BE A GOD

THAT WOULD ALLOW A WAR TO

HAPPEN LIKE THIS?

Wendy: AFTER IT'S

PUBLICATION, LETTERS FLOODED

IN, INCLUDING ONE FROM

PRESIDENT JAMES GARFIELD.

HE WROTE, "WITH THIS

BEAUTIFUL AND REVERENT BOOK,

YOU ARE LIGHTENED THE BURDEN

OF MY DAILY LIFE."

WALLACE'S OWN BURDEN HAD

ALWAYS BEEN LIGHTENED

OUTDOORS.

HE DID MOST OF HIS WRITING

UNDER WHAT CAME TO BE KNOWN

AS THE WALLACE BEECH TREE.

ITS SPREADING BRANCHES

DROOPED TO THE GROUND.

AND UNDER THEM I AM SHUT IN,

AS BY THE WALLS OF A

TOWERING GREEN TENT.

Wendy: THAT FAMOUS

WALLACE BEECH TREE IS NO

LONGER HERE.

IT ACTUALLY DIED SHORTLY

AFTER WALLACE DID AND WAS

REPLACED BY THIS BRONZE

STATUE OF HIM BEHIND ME.

BUT RIGHT OVER HERE IS

A

BUILDING THAT WALLACE

DREAMED ABOUT FOR DECADES

BUT NEVER HAD THE RESOURCES

TO BUILD UNTIL THEUCCESS

OF BEN-HUR.

LOU BUILT THIS AS HIS

PRIVATE RETREAT.

Wendy: WALLACE DESIGNED

THIS 19th CENTURY MAN

CAVE, WHERE HE SPENT HIS

GOLDEN YEARS, WRITING EVERY

DAY UNTIL HIS DEATH IN

1905.

HIS GRAVE MARKER IS

INSCRIBED WITH A QUOTE FROM

BEN-HUR.

I WOULD NOT GIVE ONE HOUR

OF LIFE AS A SOUL FOR A

THOUSAND YEARS OF LIFE AS A

MAN.

Wendy: WENDY GRIFFITH,

CBN NEWS, CRAWFORDSVILLE,

INDIANA.

WHEN WE COME BACK, THE

CREATIVE POWER OF GOD

FLOWING THROUGH ONE OF HIS

FOLLOWERS, AN ILLUSTRATION

OF THE PASSION OF CHRIST.

WELCOME BACK.

WHEN JOEASTIL WAS YOUNG,

HE DISCOVERED HE HAD A GIFT

FOR ART.

WHEN HE BECAME A CHRISTIAN,

HE BEGAN TO USE THAT GIFT TO

SHARE CHRIST.

NOW HE USES SAND AS A UNIQUE

TOOL TO TELL HIS STORIES.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE

CRUCIFIXION AND RESURRECTION

STORY LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN

IT BEFORE.

THE STORY, OF COURSE,

STARTS OUT IN THE GARDEN OF

GETHSEMANE.

OUT ON THE HILLSIDE OUTSIDE

OF JERUSALEM.

AND IT IS THERE THAT CHRIST

TOOK HIS DISCIPLES.

TO PRAY, AND HE KNEW WHAT HE

WAS FACING, ALTHOUGH THE

DISCIPLES DID NOT.

AND HANGING ON THE CROSS

THERE, WHERE HE SPOKE THE

WORDS, "FATHER, FORGIVE THEM

FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY

DO."

THE GRAVE WHERE HE LAY, THEY

HAD ROLLED A LARGE STONE

OVER THE OPENING.

SOME TIME IN THE NIGHT, THE

GRAVE HAD BEEN OPENED, A

THE MAN HAD EVERYONE THOUGHT

WAS DEAD HAD RISEN FROM THE

DEAD, AND THE TOMB WAS

EMPTY.

AND CHRIST WANTED TO BE

THERE, NOT TO BE ANY DOUBT

AT ALL, HE SHOWED THEM THE

WOUNDS IN HIS HANDS SO THAT

THEY WOULD BELIEVE HE HAD

COME BACK FROM THE DEAD.

EVERY YEAR THOUSANDS OF

CHRISTIANS CELEBRATE THE

RESURRECTION AT A SUNRISE

SERVICE AT THE GARDEN TOMB

IN JERALEM.

IT'S HE PLACE WHERE MANY

BELIEVE JESUS' RESURRECTION

OCCURRED NEARLY 2,000 YEARS

AGO.

SERVICES WILL BE HELD THAT

MORNING IN ENGLISH,

EVEN ONE IN HEBREW AND

ARABIC.
