For the world, the absurdity of a person rising from the dead mocks Christian claims of Christ's divinity: it could not happen. Cannot happen! It has never happened! Yet to be a Christian, his resurrection is demanded as central to belief.

We have no proof, of course, and the Biblical historical accounts are seriously conflicted over what really happened at his grave. Four different accounts. I find that fact of "four different accounts" encouraging. Why include them if you were trying to make a case for Christ? Why in a Jewish community would the testimony of women as to his resurrection be included in the official Gospels? Shocking! And wrong! No way! Yet there it is. Why?

The truth of the resurrection of Jesus is in the disparate views freely expressed in the NT. Why allow it, if your purpose is to make a case for this new "Jewish cult"? "Get your story straight." But they did not. They allowed the testimonies as is, no matter possible conflictions. Who would be so openly honest unless utterly confident in the fact of his resurrection? The different views of what happened are common in eyewitness testimony. Allowing it instead of trying to make a coordinated and consistent statement of events lends to its veracity.

You obviously did not take time to read what I said. You simply read the title and misread my intent.

I understand what you're saying, Rummi and yes...it's pretty interesting that they used 4 different perspectives in the Gospels and included the testimony of women...maybe improper or even shocking at the time.

It's also interesting that Easter falls on April Fools Day. I'm going to be paying attention to what happens on April 1.

Why would someone throw such a hissy fit and rant and be so offended by that which does not exist? Toids and roids all have a special place in darkness.

It's just another bitch session that they want to start Tex. They have to be able to get off on something everyday. They have nothing else in their lives!
