What is important is that Jesus died for our sins*.


*Sin being defined as a crime against God, an omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent god who invented rules for a species completely insignificant in the universe even though there is no way it could actually harm him if they did not follow them, and who then had to take on human form and become his own son through asexual reproduction and / or transmogrification to die in agony so that he could repay an unspecified debt to himself on behalf of humans for not following his arbitrary rules rather than just waive it away.

Mathilda, you probably guessed the biggest response this will get... Except... Facetious sure is a big word Tongue Laugh out load

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

If I ask my RCC parents this they'll simply quote the Apostle's Creed and be done with me.

The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God,
the Father Almighty,
Creator of Heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven,

sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty;
from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

I never heard about him descending into hell. What would he have done that for?

So that no one else would ever have to?
Whoops; no nvm!
That would've been mighty nice of him, though, huh? Undecided

The multiple stories can not be integrated into one consistent tale. No

Here you go:

Jesus was in the tomb for three days and three nights. Now after two-and-a-half days, they arrive at the tomb after sunrise, while it was still dark. Three women (including Mary Magdalene) approach the tomb and see a guard posted. Mary Magdalene, who came alone, goes and gets two disciples.

The five women (one of whom is Mary) walks up to the unguarded tomb and rolls the stone out from in front of the entrance that was already rolled away. Then, an angel shows up and moves the stone away for them, so they can get in. The guards posted at the tomb witness this event.

At this point, the women enter the tomb and two men appear. They do not enter the tomb and find two men already waiting inside. The women keep quiet about the events, telling no one, and promptly go and tell the disciples. Mary stays behind and cries while the disciples just go home.



Makes perfect sense! He is risen!... maybe.
