A Death in Jerusalem

A man went on vacation to Jerusalem with his wife and mother-in-law. While they were there, the mother-in-law died.

The undertaker explained that they could ship the body back home, but that it will cost many thousands of dollars. On the other hand, they could inter her in Jerusalem for much, much less.

The man bluntly replied, “We’ll ship her home.”

The undertaker pressed, “Are you sure? That’s an awfully big expense, and we can do a very nice burial here.”

The man said, “Look, 2000 years ago they buried a guy here and three days later he rose from the dead. That’s a chance I’m just not willing to take.”
