What does the geological record say about Earthquakes in Jerusalem around the time of Jesus’ death?

According to this story, there are two earthquakes that may have taken place at about the time of the Savior’s death.

It is always interesting to follow such scientific efforts to see how the evidences from the physical world match with the scriptures. Faith should not be based on such scientific efforts, however, but should be based on the spiritual witness through the Holy Ghost.

Still, there is some evidence of earthquakes. Cool!

About Geoff B.

Geoff B has had three main careers. Some of them have overlapped. After attending Stanford University (class of 1985), he worked in journalism for several years until about 1992, when he took up his second career in telecommunications sales. In 1995, he took up his favorite and third career as father. Soon thereafter, Heavenly Father hit him over the head with a two-by-four (wielded by the Holy Ghost) and he woke up from a long sleep. Since then, he's been learning a lot about the Gospel. He still has a lot to learn. Geoff's held several Church callings: young men's president, high priest group leader, member of the bishopric, stake director of public affairs, media specialist for church public affairs, high councilman. He tries his best in his callings but usually falls short. Geoff has five children and lives in Colorado.

  1. Jerusalem sits very close to a rift valley. It is unsurprising that there would be occasional earthquakes there.

    The miracle is in the timing.
