If the Gospels are Fiction, Why Include Women’s Testimony at the Tomb?

Defending the veracity of the resurrection stories, Christian apologists frequently argue that the Gospel writers would never have included the eyewitness account of women at the empty tomb if the resurrection accounts were fiction.  After all, Christians argue, a Jewish court would regard a woman’s testimony as weak and unreliable.  During this lively broadcast, Rabbi Tovia Singer responds to this pressing question.

    Tovia are you also condemning then also the child in Israel who received many revelation in his near death experience. Why do rabbis receive his testimony?

    The testimony of the Resurrection was destined to be received by the Northern Tribes of Israel (dispersed in the pagan nations) not the Kingdom of the South. The Messiah came as Yosef not as Yehudah. The truth is not understood by many but a few who are instructed in the Plan of HaShem. David is coming but first must appear Eliyah Hanavi for without first Eliyahu no one can claim to be the Messiah King…

    Tovia i really would have a difficult time with this, stating that the seven prophetesses are false or unreliable witnesses. sounds kind of dangerous, to me. especially if it is validated by men later to add credence to this. especially since all TheNames for ELOHEEM, and TheName of this physical story we are here in all have feminine endings. Their is something about THE OUR HE/SHE IMAGE And LIKNESS of ELSHADDAEE that the whole world is missing the point.
