Description: An oil painting of a famous Israeli garden visited by many every year. It depicts the Garden Tomb at Gethsemane.

Artist Comments: This painting of a rock-cut tomb situated in the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem, and is one of my personal favorites. This famous Israeli location is believed by many Christians to be the burial and resurrection place of Jesus Christ after His crucifixion at Golgotha, the place of the skull. Being a devout Christian, this particular painting has a lot of personal meaning for me. It is one of two I painted of this famous travel place. The other painting is called The Garden Tomb at Sunset.

The Burial and Resurrection of Jesus the Christ
“As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.” Matthew 27:57-60

“He is not here: for He is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” Matthew 28:6

The Garden Tomb is part of the Holy Lands series.

Artist Comments: This painting is second in a series of Holy Land paintings featuring the Garden Tomb. The famous tomb is located in the Garden of Gethsemane near Jerusalem and is considered by many Christians to be the actual burial and resurrection place of Jesus the Christ after His crucifixion at Golgotha, the place of the skull, rather than the famous Church of The Holy Sepulchre.

Many believe this to be the site of the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus because it so clearly fits the description described in each of the Gospel accounts.

Site of the Crucifixion:

  • Skull Rock outside the city walls of Jerusalem
  • Near a gate of the city
  • Along a busy thoroughfare
  • At a place of public execution
  • At the place of the skull – Golgoatha
  • A garden nearby

Evidence regarding the site of the tomb can be found in Matthew 27:57-60.

  • Skull Rock located in a garden
  • Belonged to a rich man named Joseph of Arimathea
  • Cut out of the rock
  • Sealed with a rolling stone
  • Entered through a low doorway
  • Burial chamber situated to the right of the entrance
