The story of the "Stone of Unction"
The Stone of Unction, at the entrance to The Church of the Holy Sepulchre located at the end of the "Via Dolorosa " within the walled Old City of Jerusalem, commemorates the preparation of Jesus' body for burial. The Stone of Unction is a Jerusalem Stone known as "Jerusalem Red" and is about six meters long and one meter wide. This limestone slab dates from 1808, when the prior 12th-century slab was destroyed. The "Jerusalem Red" is commonly used in current churches and is available in all cut to size dimensions for all application. See First Baptist Church, Gainesville, GA.
