"Whom did the women see at the tomb?" (Alleged Contradiction #E6870)
And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments …
And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
The “two men…in shining garments” in Luke were the “two angels” in John. Matthew records only “the angel of the Lord,” and Mark 16:5 records only one of them, but this is not a contradiction; not each author records every detail.
