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)

Blessed are those who are persecuted on account of righteousness 

ὅτι αὐτῶν ἐστιν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν. ”
because the kingdom of heaven is theirs

Here are some observations:

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)
