No one but he


Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. John 19:41

"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, page 52.
