    Pictures obtained by Getty Image have revealed the tomb where Jesus Christ was buried, and it has not been opened for the past 50 years.
    The debate had raged on for decades over the truth about where the leader of the Christians was buried, if it was the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem or not.

    "The shrine has been destroyed many times by fire, earthquakes, and invasions over the centuries. We didn’t really know if they had built it in exactly the same place every time.
