Alternative Naturalistic Theories #6: Wrong Tomb  
Alternative Naturalistic Theories to the Resurrection

Wrong Tomb


This theory states that the women, and everyone else, went to the wrong tomb. This theory was first put forth by Professor Kirsopp Lake (1872-1946).




1. The women, who were the first visitors to the empty tomb on Sunday morning, had just seen Jesus buried at the tomb on Friday afternoon. Would they forget where it was?


2. Peter and John also made the same mistake.


3. The Sanhedrin and any other enemies also went to the wrong tomb.


4. Joseph of Arimathea must have forgotten where the tomb, his own property, was located once the stories of the resurrection began to be preached.
