History can reoccur

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."

Learning Part

"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.

Jerusalem = Jerusalem is the city in Israel where Jesus was born and passed away

Undertaker = Person whose business is the management of funeral / dead people
