George went on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem with his family, including his mother-in-law. While there the Mother-in-law died. With the death certificate in his hand, George went to the American Consulate Office to make arrangements to send the body back to the United States for proper burial.
The Consul advised George that to ship the body back to the United States for burial could be very, very expensive. It could cost him as much as $5,000.00 or more.
The Consul told him, in most cases the person responsible for the remains normally decides to bury the body here in Jerusalem. This would only cost him $150.00.
George thinks for a moment and his response was: "I don't care how much it will cost to send the body back! That's what I want to do."
The Consul says "You must loved your Mother-in-law very much considering what it will cost you."
"No, it's not that," says George. "You see, I heard of someone who was buried here in Jerusalem many, many years ago. On the third day he rose from being dead! I just can't take that chance!
