Does this video show Jesus’ blood leaking out of His tomb?

Some claim the alleged tomb of Jesus is “leaking blood” after a video appeared to show red liquid pooling on top of it. Nicola Kanaan, a resident in Galilee, reportedly captured the moment on camera in the video below.

The footage shot at the Stone of Anointing in Jerusalem showed red patches on top of the slab as excited believers shouted in the background. The Stone of Anointing is where, according to Christian tradition dating back to the 13th century, Jesus’ body was prepared for burial before after He was crucified. Various stones have occupied the site over the centuries, with the current one only in place since construction in 1810.

The incident happened inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, one of the holiest sites in Christianity, which is believed to contain the site where Jesus was crucified and His tomb.

Social media users ranged from skeptical to total belief in their reactions when the video surfaced. While some believe this is a sign from God, these claims were also put down by those who said it was a story with no real evidence.

“The truth is in front of people and they deny it,” one user on social media commented, while another dismissed it as “this is just fake”.

“The leaking blood phenomenon is usally explained by more mundane things,” Nigel Watson, author of Haynes UFO Investigations Manual, told DailyMail Online. “Common examples include damp causing rusty patches, condensation, or outright fraud.”

“We need scientific evidence to support this rather than some shaky video footage but for many people it is question of belief rather than examining the facts,” Watson said.

Do you think the tomb “leaking blood” is a sign from God?
