In light of the Corona Virus I saw this objection come up several times online: “Why are these mega churches not turning them into hospitals?”  It is meant to be a swipe against Christianity.

For some it might sound emotionally like a good sound byte that bites against Christianity.  Here’s my response.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked:  Were the men or angels inside or outside the tomb when the women arrived?

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

Outside.

And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.” (Matthew 28:2)

Inside.

Entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting at the right, wearing a white robe; and they were amazed.” (Mark 16:5)

but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing” (Luke 24:3-4)

But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb; 12 and she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying.” (John 20:11-12)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Was the tomb opened or closed when the women arrived?

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

The tomb was open.

And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,” (Luke 24:2)

They were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” 4 Looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was extremely large.” (Mark 16:3-4)

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene *came early to the tomb, while it *was still dark, and saw the stone already taken away from the tomb.” (John 20:1)

The tomb was closed.

And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.” (Matthew 28:2)

I hear too often people say Presuppositional apologetics don’t believe in evidence.  That’s not true.  Presuppositional apologetics does believe there’s a role for evidence in Christian apologetics.

But first off some might need to know what is Presuppositional apologetics in the first place.  It might be helpful to listen to various different lectures on Presuppositional apologetics; check out our “.”  Among the many lectures the ones I recommend would be Greg Bahnsen’s Van Tillian Apologetics and Jason Lisle’s one shot “Jason Lisle “The Ultimate Proof of Creation” Lecture at The Master’s Seminary

Yet if Presuppositional Apologetics believes there’s a place for evidence how is a distinctly Presuppositional Apologetics’ approach different than the typical Evidentialism?

I can think of five ways.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: When (on what day) was Jesus crucified?

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

After noon on the day before the Passover meal

Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas into the Praetorium, and it was early; and they themselves did not enter into the Praetorium so that they would not be defiled, but might eat the Passover.” (John 18:28)

Now it was the day of preparation for the Passover; it was about the sixth hour. And he *said to the Jews, “Behold, your King!” 15 So they cried out, “Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him!” Pilate *said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” So he then handed Him over to them to be crucified.” (John 19:14-16)

Mid-morning on the day after the Passover meal

On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb was being sacrificed, His disciples *said to Him, “Where do You want us to go and prepare for You to eat the Passover?”” (Mark 14:12)

It was the third hour when they crucified Him.” (Mark 15:25)
