This last year I tried to put out more posts resolving Bible contradictions concerning the final week of Christ through His Ascension to add to the list I put out last year.  It takes some time on my part to go through them to provide exegetically sound refutations; Lord willing I will add more to this lists next year.  See my post I wrote on why refuting Bible Contradictions Takes Time.  As of Resurrection Sunday 2019 I have responded to 30 alleged Bible contradictions that took place during the final week of Jesus’ life up to His Ascension.  These posts are arranged below roughly in chronological order with additions added after last Resurrection Sunday labeled “NEW” in red:

For those who are Christians and single it is not easy to navigate the issue of whether to court someone or marry someone or not.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Where did Jesus first appear to the eleven disciples after the resurrection?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

On a mountain top in Galilee.

But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated.” (Matthew 28:16)

In a room in Jerusalem.

Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen.” (Mark 16:14)

33 And they got up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found gathered together the eleven and those who were with them, 34 saying, “The Lord has really risen and has appeared to Simon.” 35 They began to relate [a]their experiences on the road and how He was recognized by them in the breaking of the bread. 36 While they were telling these things, He Himself stood in their midst and *said to them, “Peace be to you.” 37 But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing a spirit.” (Luke 24:33-37)

So when it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and *said to them, “Peace be with you.” (John 20:19)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Were the disciples frightened or glad when they saw Jesus?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

They were frightened when they saw him.

But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing a spirit.” (Luke 24:37)

They were gladdened.

And when He had said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples then rejoiced when they saw the Lord” (John 20:20)

Jim Warner Wallace is a detective who started as an atheist and turned Christian apologist.  He prefer the term Christian case maker.  Over the years he has shared quite a number of our posts and I deeply appreciate it.  I have read and review two of his books God’s Crime Scene for Kids: Investigate Creation with a Real Detective and Forensic Faith by J. Warner Wallace and plan to read more of his works in the future.

As many Christians are thinking about the incarnation of Christ I thought I share a series of articles he’s written the last three weeks on Christ’ virgin conception and also Christ’s birth.  Be blessed.
