Illustration: Easter

In the fields near Oberhausen, Austria, is a small piece of land that belongs not to Austria, but to France. That's because it is the tomb of an officer in the French army who also served in the American Revolution. However, the tomb is empty; for his bones were taken to France!

In Jerusalem, there is an empty tomb. It is called the Garden Tomb. There are some who think it is the tomb of Jesus. Though the tomb is in Israel, the land belongs to the Dutch who bought it. There is a sense in which the empty tomb of Christ belongs to all of us.
