I am not arguing for supernatural inspiration of Christian Scriptures here, but what I am saying is that the New Testament writings are the most reliable pieces of literature from the ancient world: over 5,600 manuscript copies that date back to within 30 years of the actual events. The Gospel of Mark: written between A.D. 45-60. The writings of Paul had to have been written before his execution sometime between A.D. 65-69. Also no one in the New Testament mentions the single most catastrophic event of Israel's cultural and religious history--the destruction of the Temple by the Romans in A.D. 70. This would have been an event tantamount to the terrorist attacks September 11, 2001. The fact that the writers were all Jews (except Luke) and that they were writing about God, but no one writes about the Temple being destroyed when Jesus even predicts its destruction during his ministry leads me to believe that most if not all of the New Testament was written between A.D. 33-69. Why is that so important? The resurrection story never would have gained credibility if they were written this early--unless of course, Jesus rose from the dead. If he didn't rise from the dead why didn't the Romans or the Jewish authority simply produce his body in order to dispell the rumors? The answer is because there was no body. James, who by the way was an unbeliever before Jesus was crucified, became a church leader in Jerusalem. Where would be last place you could start a church saying that Jesus rose from the dead if he didn't raise from the dead? Jerusalem.

Contradictions in the resurrection account? Complimentary accounts my friends. Just because one Gospel says something different doens't mean it says something contradictory. In fact this shows me that the writers didn't sit down and corraborate their stories. Instead they simply wrote down what they remembered of the event. Of course different writers are going to produce different perspectives.
