I'll attempt what you're asking. It's a long task to accomplish but I'll do it. The last post I made was basically to break the ice and let you
know that I don't believe in "good friday" or "easter sunday" as christian holidays. Also, to add, the "Day of Preparation" is the
"Passover" which was the day 14 Nissan in the Hebrew Calendar. Okay, now the verses.....
Matthew 26:2- "You know that after two days is the Passover, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified."
Mark 14:1- After two days it was the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take Him
by trickery and put Him to death.
Luke 22:1- Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread drew near, which is called Passover. 2-And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might kill
Him, for they feared the people.
John 11:55- And the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went from the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves. 56-Then
they sought Jesus, and spoke among themselves as they stood in the temple, "What do you think--that He will not come to the feast?"
All four gospels speak of the plot to crucify Christ on Passover... not Good Friday. I know you're looking for the account of His resurrection so
here we go.
Matthew 28:1- Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.
2- And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat
3- His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
4- And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.
5- But the angel answered and said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
6- "He is not here; for He is risen as He said, Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
7- "And go quickly and tell his disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him.
Behold, I have told you."
8- So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.
Mark 16:1- Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him.
2- Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen.
3- And they said among themselves, "Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?"
4- But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away--for it was very large.
5- And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed.
6- But he said to them, "Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they
7- "But go, tell His disciples-- and Peter-- that He is going before you into Galilee, there you will see Him, as He said to you."
8- So they went out quickly and fled from the tomb, for they trembled and were amazed. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
Luke 24:1- Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices
which they had prepared.
2- But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb.
3- Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4- And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments.
5- Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead?
6- "He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee,
7- "saying, 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.' "
8- And they remembered His words.
9- Then they returned from the tomb and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.
John 20:1- Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away
from the tomb.
2- Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the
tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him."
.....skip to verse 11......
11- But Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb.
12- And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet where the body of Jesus had lain.
All 4 gospels speaking of the same event. The only differences are the fact that Matthew mentions Mary Magdaline with the "other Mary" while Mark
mentions Mary Magdaline, Mary the mother of James (the "other" Mary) and Salome. Luke mentions Mary Magdaline, Johanna, Mary the mother of James,
and others and John only mentions Mary Magdaline. Truth is, take them all and put them together and it was many women but Mary Magdaline leading the
charge. That shouldn't be an argument. Meanwhile, the first three gospels agree on everything but John mentions the angels meeting Mary AFTER the
desciples were alerted to the missing Body. The other three books mentions Mary and the women sighting the angels and then telling the desciples.
Two gospels only mention 1 angel and 2 mention 2 angels at the tomb. Who cares? Angels, missing body, alll women that discovered the missing body.
those are the high points that all 4 gospels agree on. Everything else is what Jesus said while walking with the Apostles. Here's a tip... instead
of trying to just parallel what doesn't fit, look at these 4 books as pieces of a puzzle and some should fit together, instead of look the same.
Anywho, is this what you wanted? If not, you are basically asking to do something as if to say these 4 books were written by 4 people that wrote the
4 exact same things but remember that people percieve things differently. John was the only apostle present at the crucifixion so his account is
probably more accurate than any other. Well, hope this helps or feeds your ego. God bless.
