The Empty Tomb- An Argument to Disprove the Resurrection?
By Rev. Ernest O'Neill
But you know there are two great facts on which the resurrection stands, the empty tomb and the resurrection appearances. Those are the twin bases of the resurrection. And so, we tackle the fact of the empty tomb. And we start with our crazy little imaginations and we say, "Now, it could have happened some other way: I know, they went on that first day of the week to the wrong tomb. That's it!" And we try that for a while and then realize it was a private cemetery and there was only one tomb and, anyway, if they had gone to the wrong tomb, the authorities could have come and gone to the right tomb. So we try that.
