“. . . a tomb cut in stone, where no one had ever yet been laid.”  Luke 23:53

“It is not without meaning that the tomb in which the body of Jesus was laid was a new one.  It was thus impossible to affirm that any other than He had opened a way out of its dark recess, the conqueror of death.”

James Dodds, Exposition of the Apostles’ Creed (London, 1896), page 52.

  1. the Old Adam says:

    No tomb could Him.

    Because of that fact…no tomb can hold us, either.
