Ep. 1089: Contradictions (Part IV): Why So Many Contradictions Surrounding Jesus’ Resurrection?

September 2, 2019
Special Guest: Tom Ruggirello

Ask any Christian and they will tell you one of the greatest - if not THE greatest - events in all of biblical history is the resurrection of Jesus after his crucifixion.  We laud this event as the undeniable guarantee that God’s plan for the world’s salvation is entirely unstoppable.  This event not only sealed the ransom payment as received, it also sealed the fate of Satan as well.  With so much riding on this event, you would think the narrative given us in Scripture would be the most crystal clear account in the entire Bible.  That is NOT the case.  The event is recorded by all four gospels and each of them seems to contradict the others!  Why so many resurrection contradictions?  Those who seek to destroy the Bible’s credibility are quick to say these discrepancies are proof of the Bible’s fallibility.  Are they?  Let’s take them one at a time and find out.
