ON THE COVER: A breeze stirs flaming poppies by the entrance to the Garden Tomb, a rock-hewn two-chambered burial cave that some people hallow as the final resting place of Jesus. Modern archaeology, however, has led to a redating of the tomb, to the eighth and seventh centuries B.C., when Solomon’s Temple crowned the Temple Mount. See “The Garden Tomb—Was Jesus Buried Here?”
