Where’s the body?

As I was reading John Piper’s article on the truthfulness of the gospel, his second point really stood out to me.  How does the world explain away the lack of Jesus’ body?  You would think many resources would have been spent trying to find his body, put it on display, and disprove Christianity.  But, two thousand years later, and nothing to show for disproving Jesus’ bodily resurrection.  All they could come up with was a lie that even they knew was not true.  The chief priests told the soldiers, “Tell people, ‘His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep.'”

So, those who do not believe Jesus rose from the dead, tell me, where is the body?
