What Happened on Easter?
For Christians, Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There are different accounts of this story in the Bible, and these accounts sometimes contradict each other. Gung-ho skeptics sometimes claim that anything smelling like a contradiction is a contradiction, and die-hard inerrantists insist that all the apparent contradictions can be explained away. This essay is an attempt to sift the genuine and inescapable contradictions from what may be no more than apparent contradictions.
