The Miracle of the Light of the Resurrection the Tomb of Jesus
Seventy Historical Accounts (4th – 16th c.)
Hardcover: 288 pages
The descent of the Holy Fire at the Tomb of Jesus every Holy Saturday is the only miraculous event in human history which has taken place each year on the same day for more than one and a half millennia. Covering a period of thirteen centuries, (4th-16th c.), this book assembles historical accounts of the celebrated event.
Seventy authors – fourteen French, nine Englishmen, seven Byzantine Greeks, six Germans, five Armenians, five Muslim Arabs, four Italians, four Persians, three Russians, three Icelanders, two Efyptians, two Chaldeans, one Syrian, one Moldavian, one Ethiopian, one Belgian, one Austrian one Swiss – describe this great miracle of the Christian world: the Holy Fire (i.e., the Light of the Resurrection of Christ) which appears every Holy Saturday at the Tomb of Jesus, a few hours before the celebration of His Resurrection.
Furthermore, the scientific measurements that were taken in the tomb of Jesus on Holy Saturday in 2008 by Associate Professor Antrey Volkov, confirm the descent of the Holy Fire and reveal three phenomena, which he himself characterizes as "incredible and entirely inexplicable."
This book also includes a historical and archeological study concerning the original appearance of Jesus' tomb and the rock of Golgotha, along with a series of reconstruction drawings of the two locations, as they looked in AD 33.
