Tomb with Rolling Stone


Categories: ,


This tomb with a rolling stone is located on the side of a road in Galilee near the Jezreel Valley. It was discovered during the widening of the road from Mount Carmel to Megiddo. The rolling stone closed off the entrance to the tomb. According to the Gospels, the tomb in which Jesus was buried was closed by rolling a big stone in front of the entrance (Matthew 27.60, 28.2; Mark 15.46, 16.3,4; Luke 24.2; John 20.1).
