Is the Holy Sepulcher authentic?
Orthodox and Catholic Christians contended that their location in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre was authentic . Some Protestants were doubtful. To resolve the dispute, scholars needed to determine the location of the city wall in Jesus' time. The problem arose because the Church of the Holy Sepulchre was well inside the walls of a bustling city and, according to contemporary Roman and Jewish custom, crucifixion and burial must have occurred outside the city walls.
