Harry was on holiday in the Middle East with his wife, children and mother-in-law.

During a visit to Jerusalem, his mother-in-law unexpectedly died.

With a death certificate in his hand, he was making preparations to fly his mother-in-law’s body home for a proper burial.

The funeral director over the phone informed Harry this was possible, but that it would cost a lot of money. In fact, flying the mother-in-law’s body home would cost $50,000.

The other option was for Harry to bury his mother-in-law’s body in Jerusalem at a cost of just $100.

Harry thought long and hard and finally came to a conclusion.

“I don’t care how much it costs, I want to send the body back home. It’s what I need to do.”

The funeral director told Harry he must have loved and cared for his mother-in-law a lot.

“No, that’s not it at all,” Harry said. “You see, I know a case many years ago of a man who was buried in Jerusalem. On the third day, he arose from the dead. I can’t take that chance with my mother-in-law.”
