He Is Risen!

But when they looked up,
 they saw that the 
which was very large,
had been 
rolled away
Mark 16:4

This is a photo of a roadside grave in Israel.  This source has more interesting photos.   If you'd care to view more, click on  "here"  under the photo.
Viewing this hits home the fact that it was difficult to gain access to the graves of Jesus' time unless you had a pick.  It also shows how the grave was sealed.  Rolling the stone away was a very hard task.  That stone looks very heavy so the swoon theory is thrown out.  Since the grave was guarded, no one could have been sneaky enough to rob the grave without alerting the guards.
 My Redeemer lives.
