Where art thou, Nicodemus?

I've recently visited the site of the tomb ( I went there also in 2006 but didn't know the exact spot.) I was really struck by the beauty of the place, with the panorama of Jerusalem due North of the ridge promenade (Armon Ha'natziv), and the tomb about 250 meters due South from that promenade. If I were a wealthy follower financing Jesus' tomb, I would have wanted to be buried in the adjacent tomb, so as to be among the very first to rise again with Him. I fancy that tomb inspected, and an ossuary inscribed
"Nakdimon ben Gorion" found in it...
