So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

More on the Aedicule: King of Jordan to help fund restoration of tomb shrine.

From the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem website:
AMMAN / JERUSALEM – On April 10, 2016, His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan announced by royal edict his decision to fund the restoration of the tomb of Christ in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.
The Royal Court informed the Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem of the “makruma” ... (Royal Benefaction) in a letter addressed to His Beatitude Theophilos III on April 10.
Bishop William Shomali, Latin Patriarchal Vicar in Jerusalem, warmly welcomed the decision of King Abdullah: “This is excellent news, news of a highly symbolic character, since the Holy Sepulchre is the most sacred place for Christians of all confessions. This decision shows the kindness of the King towards Christians and his constant concern to preserve the heritage of Christianity, including his role as guarantor of the Holy Places, Christian and Muslim, Jerusalem, according to the Wadi Araba agreement.”
