What makes Christianity different from other religions? It is the fact that Jesus Christ, the Founder of the Christian faith, rose from the dead. That’s right, Jesus was crucified in real history, but He also rose in literal time/space history.
As you prepare to celebrate this resurrection holiday, let me give you three quick facts which give validity to Jesus’ resurrection. His resurrection was foretold in the Old Testament, prophesied by Jesus himself, and those who claimed to be eyewitnesses were willing to die for believing in a resurrected Christ.
Whenever I do a series of posts, look for a post listing the links for the series. You might find it rare that skeptics know the Bible. Sometimes Muslims might bring up the challenges that were addressed in these posts. At any rate it is good to have a good handle on hermeneutics and understanding the harmony of the gospels.
In this final posting for this series, the challenge I will be addressing is rather interesting. It is interesting because each of the gospel writers present a unique picture of their own with respect to the responses which came from the women following the dialogue with those they encountered at the tomb of Jesus.
Continuing with the fifth posting in this series, we have seen up to this point that the Garden Tomb accounts demonstrate very clearly that the gospel writers’ personalities were intact toward what the Spirit had inspired each of writers. Each writer of the gospels chose what they wrote under the guise of the Holy Spirit.
For skeptics like the one who challenged me, this next posting is going to reinforce the points that I have presented up to this point.
If you have just been answering the question without reading the posts, you are missing out on a good Bible study thus far. For some these posts might be an introduction or a reintroduction to hermeneutics, or a study in the harmony of the gospels, OR learning more about undesigned coincidences. Whichever the case, we will often run into a skeptic that will challenge passages, missing the fact that the minds and personalities of the writers of the gospels remained in tact when the wrote their particular accounts.
In our series on what happened at the tomb, we come to the third installment, to answer the question of what was seen at the tomb and whether the gospel writers are in conflict what they record. As you recall, this series was sourced in a series of emails I received a few years ago.
Continuing on the series on what happened at the tomb, another skeptic tells me that there is a problem with what the gospel writers record with reference to the time of day when the women arrived at the tomb of Jesus. Whenever critics of the Bible see one account differing from another in wording or phrasing, they are quick to point out that the gospel writers cannot be in agreement with one another.
This post is going to demonstrate that there really is no problem, and that there are no contradictions between the writers.
