Affected Teaching
Here is another case of an attack on the Lord Jesus Christ at the time of His resurrection. The Gnostics could not deny the resurrection but they could deny specifically who was raised from that tomb. The Bible specifically states “the Lord” but the modern versions turn a noun into a pronoun, making it an undefined person. If God deals in specifics, it must remain specific.
