BURIAL PLACE OF MOSES? This roughly 8-foot-long, rectangular tomb in the Mt. Nebo basilica was discovered empty in 2013. Its prime location in the church’s central nave suggests it was a burial monument dedicated to Moses. The tomb’s shallow depth and lack of human remains or material suggest it was likely a cenotaph—constructed by the church’s earliest monastic community to commemorate Moses’s burial place.
