“The glaring contradictions of the story of the Resurrection have to be read to be appreciated. If we follow John, Mary Magdalene was the lone visitor to the tomb on the first Eastern morn. Matthew said that Mary Magdalene was accompanied by the other Mary. Mark names Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Salome. Luke asserted that it was Mary Magdalene, Mary the Mother of James, Joanna, and some other women. These women, stated Mark, came at sunrise, but John said that they arrive when it was not dark. When these pilgrims arrive the tomb was closed according to Matthew, but upon if we consult Luke, who stated that the stone covering the tomb had been rolled away. The women met an angel, if we listen to Matthew; Mark said they saw a young man, Luke recorded two men; and John asserted that the women observed two angels.”
