Matthew 27: 51At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. 52The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus’ resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
The stories regarding the death and resurrection of Jesus have so many contradictions that many believers have become doubters simply by comparing the stories. Only Matthew 27 has the story of zombies roaming the streets of Jerusalem. There are several details omitted. Did the zombies look like rotten corpses, or were they provided with fresh bodies? Where did they go after rising from their tombs and appearing to many people? Did they die a second time, or did they walk back into their graves? Who were these zombies? The Age of Reason provides many other comments on this passage as well as on the rest of the bible. I encourage all Christians to read this book.
More importantly, where is the evidence that this fantastic event occurred? There are no historical accounts of any event in the life of Jesus written within decades of his life. You would think that zombies walking around would generate at least one historical written account of this event. There are none.
Most biblical stories have no corroboration and are contradicted by history, geology, archeology, and science. There are no records of Jesus living. No record of the Bethlehem star. Many events that should leave evidence have not done so.
