An unidentified Colorado man said he intends to build an expansive, full-scale replica of Jerusalem’s holiest Christian heritage sites, Christian Today reported Wednesday.
According to the report, the entrepreneur plans to include Jesus’ crucifixion site, Herod’s Temple and Palace, the Antonia Fortress, and the High Priest’s Palace.
He has already purchased a 700-acre plot near Colorado Springs, and intends to raise $100 million to build the Christian theme park, including a homeless shelter, which he said will take 15 years to complete, the report stated.
It remains unclear how he will garner the money necessary for the ambitious project.
