This is fun.......using the bible to prove that it is incorrect!
These kinds of complex details might be expected in the reporting of an event from different eyewitnesses. The inconsistencies may not at all mean that the event did not take place.
I read through the court proceedings to the famous Gunfight at the OK Corral.
The court was trying to ascertain who started the gun battle, who fired the first shot, and so forth. Generally, the law was trying to determine if a crime had been commited.
The eyewitness testimony was complex and often contradictory. Yet it was obvious that a bad gun battle had occured. The inability of the jury to totally reconstruct in every detail what occured did not diminish the fact that a historical event had taken place.
Likewise, the resurrection of Jesus may contain some testimony which is difficult to reconstruct in a completely satisfactory way. Our best explanation is that nonetheless that a miracle took place and Jesus had risen from the dead.
Did you ever hear of "straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel?"
I think that is all you are demonstrating.
Gary Habermas is an authority on the details of the resurrection. Google him up or YouTube him up and maybe you can put the question to him. He has spent his life researching the evidence for the resurrection of Christ on primarily if not purely historical grounds.
