Fact or Fiction?

The Gospel accounts offer some apparent contradictions concerning the order of events about the resurrection of Jesus, for example:

Matthew says that Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb, but John describes Mary Magdalene as coming alone.

Matthew says that the women departed from the tomb and ran to tell the disciples, but Mark says that they fled from the tomb and said nothing to anyone.

Mark says that three of the women bought spices after the Sabbath, Luke says that they prepared spices before the Sabbath.

The author examines these and other apparent anomalies giving consideration to the underlying language, the cultural issues, local circumstances and human element in order to unpack the whole story in a logical way.
