Pinsteps. Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Empty tomb (Kuvuklia)

At this place was a cave into which the body of Jesus was brought. These events occurred on Friday. Apparently, due to the fact that Saturday was coming, they did not have time to prepare the cave properly, or there was a need to return and complete the burial rite. The next day when this could be done was the first day following Saturday. On that day, they came to the cave and, according to the tradition of one of the Gospels, they saw an angel saying: "Why are you looking for the living among the dead." Jesus has resurrected. These places were discovered by St. Helena - the mother of Emperor Constantine. Back in the time of Helen and Constantine, a central domed church was built over the cave. Over time, after various destruction and restoration, the crusaders decided to create a small chapel called Kuvukliya on the site of the cave.
