James McGrath exits the tomb

The above photo was kindly taken by Ryan Eller on the recent trip I led to Israel. He gave me the strangest look when I told him that you never know when a photo of oneself exiting a first-century tomb will come in handy. The tomb in the photo is a replica at the Nazareth Village open air museum. When I shared the photo on Facebook, I got some funny comments, among which one that suggested I should get out of the way and let Jesus come forth. Hence the title of this post.

  • Did you find evidence of an empty tomb?

    • This one was definitely empty. I took a good look around, before posing for the photo.

      • arcseconds

        As the tomb you visited was empty, and the Talpiot tomb was not, I determine that the chance of Jesus’s tomb being empty is 0.5.

  • “…you never know when a photo of oneself exiting a first-century tomb will come in handy.”

    It’s always best to be prepared! 😉
