Eye of a Needle

Eye of a Needle

 

 The “eye of a needle” has been claimed to be a gate in Jerusalem, which opened after the main gate was closed at night. A camel could only pass through this smaller gate if it was stooped and had its baggage removed. This story has been put forth since at least the 15th century, and possibly as far back as the 9th century. However, there is no evidence for the existence of such a gate.

A Holy Land Burial

An Scotsman & his ever nagging wife were on holiday in Jerusalem when the wife died suddenly.

The undertaker said it will cost €5,000 to ship her home or €50 to bury her here.

The Scotsman said “ship her hame.”

The undertaker said, “But, sir, why don’t you bury her in the Holy Land & save the money?”

The Scotsman said “Listen here pal, a long, long time ago a man called Jesus was buried here & 3 days later he rose from the deed. She’s gawn  hame.”
