THE UNKNOWN TOMB
There are far more pretentious burial places than the grave where the lifeless body of the Savior was laid two thousand years ago. In Egypt may be found the resting places of the great pharaohs, buried in lavish wealth in tombs of artistic design. The Taj Mahal in India is probably the most dazzling of all tombs. The grave of the prophet Mohammed is guarded in Medina and visited by devoted Muslims. In Moscow’s Red Square has lain for years the crystal casket of Lenin, which has been viewed by millions. But the exact site of the grave of Jesus Christ is not definitely known and cannot be authenticated. While other tombs are evidence of death and decay, Christ’s tomb alone is the evidence of life. Today we hear again the challenge of the angel in the garden, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?” By Billy Graham, Clergy Journal, March, 1992
