A man and his ever-nagging wife went on vacation to Jerusalem . While they
were there, the wife passed away.
The undertaker told the husband, �You can have her shipped home for $5,000,
or you can bury her here, in The Holy Land, for $150."
The man thought about it and told him he would just have her shipped home.
The undertaker asked, "Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your wife home,
when it would be wonderful to be buried here and you would spend only
The man replied, "Long ago a man died here, was buried here, and three days
later he rose from the dead.
�I just can't take that chance."
"A man who died here" in the story is Jesus.
The husband just did not want to take a risk that his wife would come back to life again as same as Jesus would before long ago.
