Zombie Invasion (33 A.D.)
51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
Isn't it amazing though that such an earth-shattering event wasn't reported by anyone except the writer of Matthew? Wouldn't one have thought that such a one-of-a-kind never-before-happened thing like the dead rising and appearing to the living would be considered a newsworthy happening -- worthy of at least a mention? I think the unexpected appearance of a horde of zombies would cause quite a panic these days.
