The Tomb and the Father of LIes

Gil Bailie’s book Violence Unveiled quotes René Girard as saying that,

The tomb is where the “father of lies” and the “murderer from the beginning” can be counted on to issue his solemn reassurances and conjure into existence another of the “kingdoms” of “this world” or revive a flagging one.

In Jesus’ resurrection that kingdom was short-lived; it only lasted three days.
