The Gospel account of the women visiting the empty tomb of Jesus serves as powerful evidence for the truth of the Resurrection, according to a popular pastor and podcaster.

In an episode of his podcast "Challenging Conversations" that aired Monday, Pastor Jason Jimenez spoke about specific events described in the Gospels about the Resurrection of Jesus, including the women who visited the empty tomb.

“If you’ve never even considered taking a look at what happened, other than —yes the most important right? — that Jesus rose from the dead. But, how did these events fall into place, sequentially?” Jimenez questioned his listeners.

Jimenez implied that in the Scripture, a select group of women voyaged to the tomb of Jesus on Easter morning, in Matthew 28:1, Mark 16:2, and Luke 24:1. Jimenez said people will often claim that the verses about the women traveling to the tomb negate one another. But, that is not the case, according to Jimenez.

“Already within this short little event, as [the women are] heading to the tomb when you piece together the Synoptics, you see that they add a layer of detail, right? And it’s not that one misses a key point. Matthew, Mark, and Luke were drawn to specific details to a specific audience,” Jimenez said.

“The great thing is when you take the Synoptics together collectively, they complement one another, right? And they feed one comprehensive narrative." When the women were going to the tomb, Jimenez stated, it was before the start of the Sabbath. They had witnessed Jesus’ burial, which is another event that transpired on Easter, as demonstrated in Matthew 27:61, Mark 15:47, and Luke 23:55.

Jimenez remarked that when the women walk to the tomb with their spices they say to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?" And looking up, they saw that the large stone had been rolled back.

The expectation that the women had was exceptional, the pastor emphasized, because the stone was thought to be well over 2,000 pounds, and yet they had faith that the stone could be lifted.

Jimenez conveyed on average, that the work to move the stone would have needed up to 20 men to move and lift it, noting that with "the disciples who bailed on their Rabbi just a few days earlier, you only have 11."

“This would take more than that. So, We don’t know what the women were thinking, how they will roll back the stone, what type of help they would have," Jimenez resumed. "They had no plan. Not only that, but the women, remember, they hadn't thought it through about the Roman guards that Caesar had placed there, it was under his seal."

Jimenez spoke about the angels in the passage that emerge at the empty tomb, proclaiming that they were reminders to the women of what Jesus had told them about His resurrection.

“Jesus fulfilled prophecy and ... that Jesus told us that He would die and then He would rise again, [and that] Jesus atoned for their sins,” Jimenez expressed, mentioning John 1:29. “He was the lamb of God. The perfect Lamb.”
