Our text is Ephesians 2:4. Here’s my translation:

“ELABORATION 3 σπουδάζοντες τηρεῖν τὴν ἑνότητα τοῦ πνεύματος ἐν τῷ συνδέσμῳ
Being diligent to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bondage of

τῆς εἰρήνης”

Here’s some observation:

This 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 2018 I have responded to 22 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 Easter labeled “NEW” in red:

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Whom did the women see at the tomb?  The question of course is about the tomb of Jesus on the day He resurrected.

Here are the four answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

An angel

“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)

A young man

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

Two men

“While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing;” (Luke 24:4)

Two angels

“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 20:12)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

It’s Palm Sunday today.  This is observed by some Christians to recall Jesus’ final week before His crucifixion and resurrection.  The final week of Jesus’ life is indeed amazing.  It changed history.

For this Palm Sunday why won’t you consider immersing yourself in knowing the Messianic prophecies in the Bible?  Check out our “” and listen to them with your Bibles handy.  It’s a worthwhile endeavor for this week.

I want to thank the author David Kits for sending this book as a gift to me during Christmas.  I am very thankful that I got to read this book.  I was much delayed writing a post for today as I was finishing this incredible book which I highly recommend.

I normally don’t read fiction (besides comics) but I made exception for this book and I’m glad I did.  This is a powerful retelling of the last week of Jesus.  It is narrated in the first person by the centurion who confessed that Jesus is the Son of God at the crucifixion in Matthew 27:54.  The author gave the centurion the fictional name of Marcus Longinus.  This story is shaped by the biblical account of the last week of Jesus.  I have previously enjoyed the author’s prose in his book on the Psalms and here in his story of the last week of Jesus’ life he takes things to the next level.  It is excellent and I’m glad David Kitz wrote this.  During one of the days I was reading this book I was in line to pick up my food to go at a restaurant.  The lady ringing me up at the cashier counter asked what I was reading and I told her what this book was about.  She didn’t feel so comfortable and I told her how I enjoyed it and the incredible work the author has done in terms of its history and how it is written.  She added “But it sounds so deep…”  She is right.  The passion of Christ is deep.  And it is sobering.  Yet it is joyful.  Joyful because we know Christ came to die on the cross for the forgiveness of sins.  Sinners such as you and I.  David Kitz tells this story in a while that will grab your attention but also in a manner that is reverential and deep…because the subject is deep.  Of course I recommend this book but more than that I want to “recommend” and plead for people reading this review to trust in Jesus as their Savior.
