The angel of the Lord was outside after rolling the stone away, and two angels were inside the tomb later. The Bible never says that the first angel remained on the top of the stone the entire time; he may have entered the tomb later, or he could have been a different angel altogether. More than one angel could have told the women the exciting news of Jesus’ resurrection: after all, the disciples “believed not for joy,” and it may have taken a while for the resurrection of Jesus to sink in. Thus, there is no contradiction among these passages.
