Re: Applying the Art of Lie-detecting to the Resurrection Accounts
I believe that inconsistency between the gospels and even omissions support the validity of the witnesses. In court if four testimonies were exactly the same the judge would not allow them as evidence because they were most likely corroborated. The testimonies of the four gospels should have minor differences for the same reason that a college professor doesn’t get multiple identical essays unless some of the students have cheated.
