Since the annual z-fest is approaching, let's recap by a few inerrant quotations:
We know that Christianity is true because the Gospel writers, inspired by God who can make no error, recorded the founding events. Hallelujah!
On that 'first' Easter morning, who visited the tomb and who were encountered there?
Mark 16 c.70 CE
1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, so that they might come and anoint Him.
2 Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen.
3 They were saying to one another, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?"
4 Looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was extremely large.
5 Entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting at the right, wearing a white robe; and they were amazed.....
Luke 24 c.70-90 CE
1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they (Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and also the other women with them - Luke 24:10) came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.
2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing.....
Matthew 28 c.80-100 CE
1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave.
2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.....
John 20 c.90-120 CE
1 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came early to the tomb, while it was still dark, and saw the stone already taken away from the tomb.
2 So she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved.....
11 But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb
12 and she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying.....
Since the bible is supposed to be inerrant, Mark, Luke, Matthew and John, who tale about that 'first' Easter morning, should tale exactly the same thing. They don't. How embarrassing.
Don't we just love biblical inerrancy ........
rejected and denied by many, accepted and embraced by few : falsifiability
- it is not what we (think we) know that matters, it is what we can show true that does
as the maxim demands; truth is demonstrably fact and fact is demonstrably true
everything else ... mere BS -
New!! Improved!! Now With CD-Formula!!
