Read full description of the books The Garden Tomb:The concluding scene in the most crucial drama of all time and eternity!
On a Friday afternoon almost two thousand years ago, in an obscure part of the Roman empire, the crucified Son of God was laid to rest in a borrowed tomb outside Jerusalem's city wall. Consumer with grief, his disciples did not realize that within three days, as the Jews measure time, earthshaking events would culminate in Jesus' resurrection, the which they would all become eyewitnesses. The Garden Tomb tells the story of the Savior's burial, mission to the world of the spirits, and triumph over death - all of which constitute the third act in the singular drama that was and is the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
