The Four Resurrections Of A Savior!
Most people will argue that any differences found in references to the resurrection, between the four Gospels of the so-called [New Testament]™, are simply due to each writer's reporting a different aspect of the same event. They would have you believe that the four widely differing accounts just dovetail together, and somehow become factual. They would explain the differences, as simply that one writer left out a fact that another included.
However, that is not the way it is. In actuality the accounts vary so widely, it is as if there were four different happenings of the same event, instead of four harmonious happenings of the same event. For example, if the four gospels contained a story of an accident, one account might state that two full size automobiles had a head on collision. Another might state that one automobile rear ended another automobile. Yet another, would report that one automobile ran into the side of the other automobile. While yet the fourth account might report that the two automobiles actually did not collide at all, but by a miracle from above, one rose over the other a nanosecond before impact.
"Give me a break," you might say, "the four accounts are not that different." Most 'Christians' believe, that the so-called [New Testament]™ statements of the events of the resurrection are fact, and do not contradict each other! The [New Testament]™ itself, warns readers to beware of false sayings and teachings (Matthew 24:11, Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; 2 Corinthians 11:13-15) and admonishes the reader to be as the noble Bereans and CHECK IT OUT! (Acts 17:11).
So as a case in point, lets be noble like the Bereans, and check out the most fundamental doctrine of all 'Christianity.' That is, the one most basic to Christianity, the resurrection. If the resurrection tale is contradictory what about the rest of the [New Testament]™?
Who First Approached The Empty Tomb?
(Matthew 28:1) (KJV) - Mary Magdalene and the other Mary.
(Mark 16:1) (KJV) - Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome.
(Luke 24:10) (KJV) - Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary of James, and the rest of the women.
(John 20:1) (KJV) - Mary Magdalene alone.
We know, or we suspect, that at least, Mary Magdalene was there since all four mention her!
Was It After Sunrise Or Before Dawn?
(Matthew 28:1) (KJV) - As it was getting light.
(Mark 16:5) (KJV) - At the rising of the sun.
(Luke 24:1) (KJV) - At early dawn.
(John 20:1) (KJV) - While it was still dark, before sunrise.
Either the disciples were in different timezones and had miraculous vision, or they weren't there at all.
Who Were They Greeted By At The Tomb?
(Matthew 28:2) (KJV) - After an earthquake (only time mentioned) an angel sat on the stone.
(Mark 16:5) (KJV) - A young man in white, inside the tomb.
(Luke 24:4) (KJV) - Two men in shining garments.
(John 20:12) (KJV) - Two angels sitting inside tomb.
Perhaps different people gave the disciples second-hand accounts, however it's abundantly clear that none of the disciples were there in person.
Other Questions That Can Be Asked.
Did Mary Magdalene know of the resurrection before seeing 'Jesus'? Although (Matthew 28:5, Mark 16:6, and Luke 24:5) answer in the affirmative; John disagrees, maintaining that it was 'Jesus' who first revealed himself, to the grief-stricken Mary Magdalene that he was alive (John 20:14-17).
Was Mary Magdalene's initial report to the disciples a second-hand account of what she had been told by two men (Luke 24:9), or a first-person account of an actual visitation by the risen 'Jesus'? (John 20:18).
Remember, the disciples did not go to the tomb. They were in town in another place; the women had to go to them (Mark 16:7), to give them the news about the resurrection. Furthermore, at times, the disciples did not believe the women about the resurrection of 'Jesus.' He had to rebuke them for their unbelief. (Mark 16:14).
Where Did The Disciples First See 'Jesus', And How Many Saw Him?
(Matthew 28:16-17) (KJV) - Eleven in Galilee.
(Mark 16:7-14) (KJV) - Eleven in Galilee.
(Luke 24:33-36) (KJV) - Eleven in Jerusalem.
(1 Corinthians 15:5) (KJV) - Peter and then to the twelve.
This shows, that the disciples were not eyewitnesses to the resurrection even if they say they were: "but were eyewitnesses of his majesty" (2 Peter 1:16). The word "majesty" in Strong's is #G3168 and means "greatness, magnificence, divine majesty" which is referring to the so-called transfiguration of 'Christ'.
If you really look at the resurrection chapters in detail, you will see, that there was not a single human being who witnessed the resurrection. Primarily because there wasn't one, and no one was there. I find this very strange. The whole point of the so-called [New Testament]™ book of deception, is the resurrection and coming to power of the alleged 'son of god', which you would think The ETERNAL would want the whole earth to witness the rising and coronation of His son, or at least those in Jerusalem, maybe the deciples, maybe even only one? The ETERNAL does nothing in the dark. If the resurrection did indeed happen, it would have been in every newspaper, scroll, history book, and mind. Every person whould have seen, and heard of it. But no, it didn't get announced until a group of bishops decided to invent it in AD 325, at the The First Council of Nicea. (More on that later.)
If the disciples who wrote the four gospels, could not agree with each other, on what happened at the tomb, and if each gospel writer was guided by "God's" Holy Spirit as they claim, then there is something very wrong. None of the gospels writers agree with each other! But how could they, because by their own admission, they were not even there! (Matthew 28:1-10, Mark 16:1-10, Luke 24:1-10, John 20:1-2).
Why Four Gospels?
Would not one gospel be able to tell the truth? Why the need to have four different disciples, telling four widely different versions, which are polar opposites of each other? Could it be that actually, the event never happened, and they are just throwing various versions against the walls of your mind, hoping that one of them would stick? Paul Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Infamous Propaganda Minister, put it like this: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it"! He would know, because he single-handedly brainwashed the German people, into believing that they were the Aryan master race, at Hitler's request. Should you base even the simplest spiritual decision, upon reports which are so obviously false, inconsistent and contradictory? Does it make sense to do so, when your very own eternal life is at stake?
And [the women's] words [of the resurrection] seemed [to the disciples] as idle tales, and they believed them not. (Luke 24:11) And if his own disciples did not believe that he was resurrected, then why should we?
More Monumental Contradictions.
The ETERNAL CREATOR and SOVEREIGN of the universe has stated, concerning His firstborn Son(s):
(Exodus 4:22-23) (KJV) 1And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the ETERNAL, Israel is [present tense] my son, even my firstborn: 2And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.
(Psalm 89:20) (KJV) I have found My servant David; With My holy oil [Spirit] I have anointed him:
(Psalm 89:27-37) (KJV) 27Also I will make him [David] my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth. 28My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him. 29His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven. 30If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments; 31If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments; 32Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. 33Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. 34My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. 35Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. 36His seed shall endure forever, and his throne as the sun before me. 37It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.
Don't you think, that if The CREATOR had a Heavenly firstborn son, even before Adam and Eve, or the guiding of the Hebrews out of Egypt, He would have mentioned it long before then? Not only is there no mention of such a son, the ETERNAL even goes as far as to declare centuries beforehand, that He does not share His Glory (in Hebrew: #H3519), or His Majesty (in Greek: #G3168), and that there is NO saviour but Him [ETERNAL], and that in fact He [ETERNAL] is the Rock:
(Isaiah 45:21) (KJV) Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I Yahweh? and there is no SOVEREIGN else beside me; a just SOVEREIGN and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
However, counting on the fact that you aren't aware of the above statements, made by the CREATOR Himself, we have these outright lies who's only purpose is to get you to worship a false 'god', a self-proclaimed 'saviour' who has never existed, nor ever will exist:
(John 1:1-3) (NKJV) 1In the beginning was the Word ['Jesus'], and the Word ['Jesus'] was with 'God', and the Word ['Jesus'] was 'God'. 2He ['Jesus'] was in the beginning with 'God'. 3All things were made through Him ['Jesus'], and without Him ['Jesus'] nothing was made that was made.
(Colossians 1:15-16) (NKJV) 15He ['Jesus'] is the image of the invisible 'God'*, the firstborn over all creation**. 16For by Him ['Jesus'] all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him ['Jesus'] and for Him ['Jesus'].
I ask you, where in the Hebrew Scriptures [Old Testament] does it state any of that? I'll tell you where; Absolutely Nowhere! Someone is putting words in the ETERNAL's mouth, that he didn't speak. You can hear, and even feel, the total disrespect and mocking arrogance aimed at the ETERNAL, just from reading those two statements. Looking closer at this shocking claim, we can't just ignore its implication:
*He ['Jesus'] is an IMAGE of the invisible 'God', is a statement which goes against the 2nd commandment, and compounding that fact is that he ['Jesus'], is worshiped on Sunday the 'lords' day, but not on the true seventh-day Sabbath, which goes against the 4th commandment!
(Exodus 20:2-11) (KJV):
2I am the ETERNAL thy SOVEREIGN, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3Thou before me.
4Thou unto thee , or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5Thou , : for I the ETERNAL thy SOVEREIGN am a jealous CREATOR, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7Thou ; for the ETERNAL will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, to keep it holy.
9You shall labor six days, and do all your work,
10but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the ETERNAL THY SOVEREIGN. You shall not do any work in it, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your livestock, nor your stranger who is within your gates;
11for in six days the ETERNAL made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore the ETERNAL blessed the Sabbath day, and made it holy.
After all, the [New Testament]™ is a creation of man, in which man creates 'god' in man's image; namely 'Jesus', and gives him the power to countermand the ETERNAL's Commandments, Laws, and Statutes. And all you have to do is believe in him ['Jesus'], and he will save you from all those bad Laws of his father. Moreover, never once do they show under what scripture(s) this so-called 'Christ' has any authority from above, to do so. More on this later.
Expanding more on the 'The Rock' narrative of the [New Testament]™, the man from Galilee, is said to have appointed Peter to be "The Rock", upon which he would build his church:
(Matthew 16:18) (NIV) And I ['Jesus'], tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock [Peter], I ['Jesus'] will build my [not his father's] church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
Nevertheless, what do the Hebrew Scriptures state concerning who 'The Rock' really is:
(Deuteronomy 32:3-4 (KJV) 3Because I will publish THE NAME of the ETERNAL: ascribe ye greatness unto our CREATOR. 4He [the ETERNAL] is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a SOVEREIGN of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
(Deuteronomy 32:15) (KJV) But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook the CREATOR which made him, and lightly esteemed The Rock of his salvation.
(Deuteronomy 32:18) (KJV) Of The Rock who begot you ...have forgotten the CREATOR who fathered you.
(2 Samuel 22:47) (KJV) ETERNAL lives! Blessed be My Rock! Let CREATOR be exalted, The Rock of my salvation!
(Isaiah 44:8) (KJV) Do not fear, nor be afraid; Have I [ETERNAL] not told you from that time, and declared it? You are My [ETERNAL's] witnesses. Is there a Mighty One besides Me [ETERNAL]? Indeed there is no other Rock; I [ETERNAL] know not one.'
(Habakkuk 1:12) (KJV) Are You not from everlasting, O ETERNAL my SOVEREIGN, my [set apart] One? ...O Rock, You [ETERNAL] have marked them for correction.
(John 1:18) (KJV) [John speaking] No man hath seen 'God' at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
(John 6:46) (KJV) ['Jesus' speaking] Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of 'God', he hath seen the Father.
Oops, wrong again. The ETERNAL states:
(Genesis 26:1-3) (LEB) 1And there was a famine in the land, besides the former famine which was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech, king of the Philistines, to Gerar. 2And Yahweh appeared to him [Isaac] and said, "Do not go down to Egypt; dwell in the land which I will show to you. 3Dwell as an alien in this land, and I will be with you, and will bless you, for I will give all these lands to you and to your descendants, and I will establish the oath that I swore to Abraham you father.
(Genesis 32:30) (LEB) Then Jacob called the name of the place Peniel which means I have seen the ETERNAL face to face and my life was spared.
(Exodus 24:9-11) (TLB) 9Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel went up into the mountain. 10And they saw the SOVEREIGN of Israel; under his feet there seemed to be a pavement of brilliant sapphire stones, as clear as the heavens. 11Yet, even though the elders saw the ETERNAL, he did not destroy them; and they had a meal together before the CREATOR.
(Exodus 33:11) (AMP) And the ETERNAL spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend.
(Numbers 12:8) (NIV) With him I speak face to face, clearly and not in riddles; he sees the form of the ETERNAL. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
(Numbers 14:14) (NIV) And they will tell the inhabitants of this land about it. They have already heard that you, CREATOR, are with these people and that you, CREATOR, have been seen face to face, that your cloud stays over them, and that you go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.
(Deuteronomy 5:4) (NIV) The ETERNAL spoke to you face to face out of the fire on the mountain.
(Deuteronomy 34:10-12) (LEB) 10And not again has a prophet arisen in Israel like Moses, whom Yahweh knew face to face, 11as far as all the signs and the wonders Yahweh sent him to do in the land of Egypt, against Pharaoh and all of his servants and against all of his land, 12and as far as all of the mighty deeds and as far as the great awesome wonders Moses did before the eyes of all Israel.
So who are you going to believe? The ETERNAL CREATOR and SOVEREIGN of the universe, or some lying counterfit false idol 'man-god' saviour mythology, of an equally counterfit [New Testament]™ book of deception?
We have just seen, that the four gospels and the [New Testament]™ book of deception, can Not be trusted! You must now come to a vital decision, to continue to accept this falsehood, or reject it. Those of you that reject the falsehood of the so-called [New Testament]™, and repent before the Holy One of Israel, must start obeying all His commandments, statues, and laws, and seek out His will for you in the Hebrew Scriptures [Old Testament], and ask Him to forgive you, and He most assuredly will.
Where Did The [New Testament]™ Come From?
The very names used today in our Bibles (Old Testament & New Testament), implies one is old, used up, no longer fit for use, while the other is new, better, improved, replacing the old. This is not by accident. Originally called the "Hebrew Bible" or the "Tanakh", the [Old Testament] is the word of the ETERNAL CREATOR and SOVEREIGN of the universe, His Commandments, Statutes, Ordinances, or "Laws", given to His people the Israelites. Moreover, they were to be "observed forever", with the added warning not to "worship or fear other gods". However this proved to be problematic for the "powers that be", because the people obeyed the ETERNAL over the rulers. Something had to be done. And it was! A [New Testament™] was created. In it, they replaced the ETERNAL with "other gods" (a savior, the trinity, mary, and so-called apostles and saints), His "Commandments, Statutes, and Ordinances" with false commandments, statutes, and ordinances like (advent, all saints day, ascension day, christmas, easter, lent, sunday, and so on).
The [New Testament]™ Gets Created By Decree!
The First Council of Nicea, was a council of Christian bishops convened in Nicaea in Bithynia (present-day Iznik in Turkey) by the Holy Roman Emperor Constantine I in AD 325. This first ecumenical council was the first effort by a Holy Roman Emperor on behalf of the state, to attain consensus in the church by decree, through an assembly representing all of Christendom. Its main accomplishments were settlement of the Christological issue of the nature of 'God' the Son and his relationship to 'God' the Father (inclusion of baalism by introducing polytheistic 'multi-godhead' worship known as trinitarianism), the relationship of the people to the state, the construction of the first part of the Creed of Nicaea, settling the calculation of the date of Easter (inclusion of paganism by outlawing passover in favor of Easter, changing the the ETERNAL's Sabbath from it's Hebrew calculation to sunday), and promulgation of early canon law.
What Is The Current [New Testament]™ Message?
Today it's all about building church rolls, collecting tithes for obtaining opulent lifestyles and wealth, glitzy jobs, fancy cars, fancy evangelists preaching their profane [New Testament]™ message of 'YOU ARE ALL SAVED, BECAUSE SOME FALSE 'GOD' DIED FOR YOU SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO, IF YOU JUST BELIEVE', and this zinger, "the penalty for breaking the ETERNAL's commandments and laws were Nailed To The Cross" endlessly proclaimed by the Church of Rome and her proselytising daughters.
We Need To Get Back To The Hebrew Scriptures.
We [present day Israelites] can and must repent of worshiping 'gods' which the fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, did not know (i.e. a dead man [false idol], hanging on a wooden cross). Moreover, shouldn't you obey the Laws and Commandments the ETERNAL CREATOR, and SOVEREIGN of the universe has given you, the way He wants you to obey them? Willfully, cheerfully, with all your heart, and all your soul? With love and respect for all He has done, and is doing for you? Or, should you continue to obey the Church of Rome and her proselytising daughters with their so called [New Testament]™ "False Idol" and his lying [apostles, deciples, ministers, priests, deacons, popes, etc.], not to mention the "Self Proclaimed" Apostle Paul, with his 'baal' worshiping, polytheistic 'multi-godhead' trinitarian opinions, telling you that you have been set free from having to pay the penalty for breaking the ETERNAL's Laws, and that all you have to do now is believe? Really? Is that all you have to do? Think about it.
The Self-proclaimed 'Son Of God' Was Executed By The
Command Of The ETERNAL Based On The Law In The Torah!
(Deuteronomy 13:1-5) (WEB) 1If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you, 2and he gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, "Let us go after other gods" (which you have not known) "and let us serve them"; 3you shall not listen to the words of that prophet, or to that dreamer of dreams; for Yahweh your CREATOR is testing you, to know whether you love Yahweh your CREATOR with all your heart and with all your soul. 4You shall walk after Yahweh your CREATOR, fear him, keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and you shall serve him, and cling to him. 5That prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be [PUT TO DEATH], because he has spoken rebellion against Yahweh your CREATOR, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to draw you aside out of the way which Yahweh your CREATOR commanded you to walk in. So you shall remove the evil from among you. Also see: (Exodus 3:15, Psalm 146:3).
It is vital that you understand how important the ETERNAL CREATOR and SOVEREIGN of the universe views false idols, false 'gods', false saviors, and those who promote them, either intentionally or unintentionally. Make no mistake about it. The self-proclaimed 'son of god', met the fate of false prophets [PUT TO DEATH], even though much of what he said, and did, came to pass. It is also a test and a warning to see if you can be tricked into believing such a one. Just as the CREATOR allowed the adversary of man to deceive Adam and Eve in the garden, He continues to allow the adversary of man to deceive you today with the so-called [New Testament's]™ false covenant! Also see: (Deuteronomy 28:20, Deuteronomy 29:25-26, Deuteronomy 31:16-18, Judges 10:10, Judges 10:13, 1 Samuel 8:8, 1 Kings 11:33, 1 Kings 19:10, 2 Kings 22:17, 2 Chronicles 7:19-20, Isaiah 1:4, Jeremiah 1:16, Jeremiah 2:13).
A Reminder From The Eternal Creator:
(Deuteronomy 30:15-19) (NIV) 15See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. 16For I command you today to love the ETERNAL your CREATOR, to walk in obedience to Him, and to keep His commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the ETERNAL your CREATOR will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. 17But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other 'gods' and worship them, 18I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess. 19This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.
(Jeremiah 9:14) (NIV) Instead, they have followed the stubbornness of their hearts; they have followed the 'Baals', as their ancestors taught them.
(Deuteronomy 8:19) (NIV) If you ever forget the ETERNAL your SOVEREIGN and follow other 'gods' and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed.

 A Berean was simply an inhabitant of Beroea, that compared EVERYTHING they were taught concerning the ETERNAL's word, to the Hebrew Scriptures as the final authority. Paul, Silas, and Timotheus were forced to flee Beroea to the sea-coast, because they were perceived by the Jewish Bereans to be preaching false teachings, not supported by the Hebrew Scriptures.
