TB Joshua burial: Church in birthplace of Jesus Christ lights candle for late cleric

The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) has revealed that a church in the birthplace of Jesus Christ lit candles for late cleric, Pastor Temitope Joshua, popularly known as TB Joshua.

The Church of Nativity in Bethlehem, the birthplace of the Biblical Jesus Christ, was said to have lit the candle lights.

The founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations died in Lagos few days ago at the age of 57, as church members were left in shock by his demise.

The candle light was performed by the Priest in charge of the church, William Ghattas.

Recall that the family of the deceased had said the burial programme would begin on July 5 through to July 11.

A member of the family, who spoke on condition of anonymity said the date was fixed after the immediate and extended members of the family of TB Joshua met at the residence of the deceased in Lagos State on Friday.

The family decision is contrary to the expectation of the monarch of Arigidi Akoko, Oba Yisa Olanipekun, and some other traditional rulers in the Akoko area, who wanted the late pastor buried in his hometown, Arigidi Akoko.

The traditional rulers were of the opinion that if the late cleric was taken to his hometown for burial, it would further give the town global recognition as the deceased’s worshippers all over the world would want to visit it to see his tomb and would also make the church to continue the project already embarked upon by the late founder.

But the family member said the wife, Evelyn, and the children of the late cleric prevailed on the other family members over the burial place and date at the meeting.
