Dear Alex you said:
The Anglicans and Lutherans, in actual fact, have pinpointed ANOTHER place in Jerusalem where they say could have been the "place of the skull" where Jesus was buried and rose from the dead.
I saw it while on tour there and it truly DOES look like a skull - quite amazing.
Leave it to the Protestants to make us question what Saint Helen had found. Actually they believe that the Church of the Holy Sepulcher could not have been the place since it is within the walls. The walls though are not the original at the time of Jesus...they were located further in.
Also according to tradition, the place of the skull is supposedly the place where Adam's skull is located. I don't recall if I saw the skull or not. What I did see though in the Jerusalem Patriarchate, ( he was my relative from the wealthy Carivellis side
), was the jail and chair with two holes for Jesus' feet when he was in captivity.
Another thing I recall seeing in Israel was the jars where water was changed into wine and also the footprint that tradition says was left there when Jesus rose to heaven. Now the Franciscans say that it is not really His footprint, but you know something....I believe it is. Otherwise why is it there?
Everything was truly overwhelming, and I was so dazed from everything, that I couldn't recall afterwards where I had been and what I had seen.
You know there is another tradition that the Protestants want to destroy, and that is where the Red Sea parted. Tsk, tsk, tsk! :rolleyes:
