The Women Went To The Wrong Tomb
According to this theory the reason the women could not find Jesus' body was that they went to the wrong tomb.
The theory argues that the women were probably confused and in their grief could easily have mistaken where they had laid Jesus' body. When they went back to where they thought they had placed the body, they simply went to the wrong tomb.
• This is only a possible explanation of why they found the tomb empty. And if they had mistaken the tomb for another, they would surely have checked the other tombs nearby.
• It does not explain the various accounts of Jesus appearing to the women and the disciples.
