George went on a vacation to the Middle East with his family, including his mother-in-law. During their vacation in Jerusalem, George's 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 a proper burial. The Consul told George that to send the body back to the United States for burial would be very, very expensive. It could cost him as much as $5,000. The Consul told him that in most cases the person responsible for the remains normally decided to bury the body there in Jerusalem, and that that would cost him only $150.
George thought for some time and answered, "I don't care how much it will cost to send the body back; that's what I want to do."
The Consul said, "You must have loved your mother-in-law very much, considering the difference in price."
"No, it's not that," said George. "You see, I know of a case many, many years ago of a man that was buried here in Jerusalem. On the third day he arose from the dead. I just can't take that chance."
