Jesus midwife' tomb.

Jesus midwife' tomb.

A team of archaeologists in Jerusalem are set to excavate the tomb of a woman who may have been the midwife of Jesus Christ.

The tomb, which is located in the Kidron Valley, is believed to date back to the first century AD.

The woman, who was known as Salome, is thought to be the same person mentioned in the Gospel of Mark, who witnessed the crucifixion of Christ.

The team of archaeologists, led by Prof. Shimon Gibson, will begin excavations at the site later this month.

It is hoped that the excavation will shed new light on the life of Christ and the role of women in his ministry.

The tomb of Salome is just one of many that have been discovered in the Kidron Valley in recent years.

In 2016, the tomb of Caiaphas, the high priest who sentenced Christ to death, was discovered in the valley.

And in 2017, the tomb of another high priest, Annas, was also found in the valley.

The Kidron Valley is a rich source of archaeological finds, and the excavations of the tombs of Caiaphas and Annas have yielded a wealth of new information about the life and times of Christ.

The tomb of Salome is expected to be equally fruitful, and the team of archaeologists is hopeful that it will help to fill in some of the gaps in our knowledge of Christ and his ministry.
