Probably not everyone knows that the cave in which Jesus Christ was entombed was not originally his.

It belonged to Joseph of Arimatheaa, a follower of Jesus who gave it over as Christ had no place of his own.

I have always wondered what Joseph's friends may have said to him about giving his tomb to Jesus. I think it went something like this: "That was such a beautiful, costly, hand-hewn tomb. Why did you give it to Jesus to be interred in? That must have been very tough to do"

"Oh, no, not really." Joseph's may have replied, "After all, he only needed it for the weekend."
