After reading news about events around the death of Kim the Second (here and here), now I can understand why many people are skeptical about the details surrounding the death of Jesus, like how the sky became dark for three hours (Mat 27.45), how the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom, and how the earth shook, the rocks split, and the tombs broke open before “the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life” and “came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.” (27.51-53) Of course, the former is a quintessential example of state propaganda, but one could also imagine how the gospel writers employed figures of speech to do justice to the tectonic impact of the death of Jesus. The appropriate way to describe the death of Jesus is to invest it with apocalyptic content.

(Kim’s birth is equally amazing. Check it out.)

      still cant believe that someone who is that conservative (he is clearly much more conservative than enns) is still not good enough for those strict inerrantists.
