The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many.This is another example of attempting to defend the inerrancy of the Bible against the poor chances of a passage being literally historical.. Does it really makes sense that this passage is historically accurate?
- What are the chance of the actual resurrection of the dead? ("Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." ~ paraphrased from several)
- Even if this did happen, where are the extra-biblical accounts of such an extraordinary event?
