Georgia ...

We are in Savannah for Easter weekend.  Be back at home late Monday night. 

- The tomb was not enshrined
Since Jesus' tomb was not recognized as a shrine of worship, this also indicates that it was empty. It was common in that day for the tombs of holy men to be enshrined. In Palestine at that time, the tombs of at least fifty prophets or other religious figures were enshrined as places of worship and veneration. Yet, according to James G. Dunn, there is "absolutely no trace" of any veneration at Jesus' tomb. The obvious reason for this lack of veneration is that Jesus was not buried but instead resurrected.

Have a great Easter!
