Ahead of this month's 'Middle East Analysis' podcast, here's a five-minute extract focusing on the restoration of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Jesus's tomb, in particular, inside a structure known as the Edicule, is receiving special attention. Dr Harry Hagopian, our podcast contributor and the Bishops' consultant on the Middle East North Africa region, talks about the Christian confessions responsible for the Church and how the restoration work is now finally underway. The project is expected to be completed in time for Easter 2017. #HolySepulchre #tomb # Jesus #burial #Jerusalem #Christ #Christian #HolyLand
