Christ is Risen, Y'all!

I was doing a search for information on the Holy Sepulcher to put in this Sunday's bulletin and found this website posted by Galyn Wiemers, Generation Word Ministries, Dallas, Texas.  The information seemed mostly archeological and historical, with good schematics.  Is anyone familiar with this minister and the accuracy of the Jerusalem 101 information on the Holy Sepulcher?  It appears from Mr. Wiemer's blog and website that he's a quasi-Calvinist, free-will Evangelical.  Not Orthodox but he didn't come across as a whacko either.  I was going to use some of the schematics in the bulletin, with the following caveat:

Follow the link below for more fascinating schematics and a huge amount of historical and archeological information on the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.  Please note this is not an Orthodox Christian website and the information contained has not been verified by Orthodox sources.

Anyone see any problem with this?  Of course, I'll check with my priest too.

I did a quick read through of it and everything seems pretty sound to me, at least from an archaeological/historical point of view.  He doesn't look like he has a bone to pick with any of the traditional sites or interpretations of them.

Thanks Schultz.  No Garden Tomb nonsense.  I mainly liked the clear schematics.  They were easy to cut and paste into my bulletin format for one thing.

Most people have no idea about the layout of the Holy Sepulcher in relation to the actual site of the Crucifixion and Burial.  The city and the Church have built up over everything so you lose a sense of place.

The only thing that bothers me (and its a personal thing not a historical thing) with maps, I personally like at least knowing which way is north.

However, everything is quite nice and very well done.
