Bible Corruption Series: Part 5 – Conflicting Gospels on the Empty Tomb & Ascension to Heaven

By: S.L.A © 2016 DawahMaterials.com

Empty tomb he is risenThe details surrounding the story of the empty tomb and ascension of Jesus have numerous variations existing between the gospels. They are not minor differences that can be dismissed. I’m going to provide you with some simple, easy to read charts below, for each topic in the story that contradicts between gospels to compare and contrast details easily.

Warning: This article is very long due to the number of the variations and contradictions.

Question #1: Who was ‘initially’ present at the tomb?

When number of people present, and who those people were all vary, it makes you question which story is the correct one.

Why are different people stated to be present?

Why their actions/roles, and who said what different?

Why is the position of the stone different?

See the below chart to see the variations.

Who was initially present at the tomb?
Matthew 28:1-10

Mary Magdalene

Other Mary

Angel in white

Some Guards

Angel came down from heaven and rolled the stone, and sat on it

Angel spoke to her

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
Mark 16:1-6

Mary Magdalene

Other Mary

Salome

A Man in white

Stone was already rolled away

Man in white sitting on the right in the tomb

Man said not to be afraid.

When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.   “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.
Luke 24:1-11

Mary Magdalene

Other Mary

Joanna

“others with them”

Two men in glowing clothes

Stone was already rolled away

Suddenly, while there, the 2 men appear

Two men speak to the women

On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women (listed in later verse) took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners*, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” Then they remembered his words. When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles. But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense.
John 20:1 Mary Magdalene Stone was already rolled away Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. (in 2-10, she ran to get Peter and others, then came back)
John 20:11-18

Mary Magdalene

Two Angels

Jesus

Stone had already been rolled away

Two angels sitting inside where the body was put

Angels spoke to her

(after she went and got Peter and the disciples)

Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?” “They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus. He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?” Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.” Jesus said to her, “Mary.”

She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”). Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” ** Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her.

* Notice how they say Jesus was a prophet, and no mention of being the ‘son of God’, nor “God”.

** He says he is going to “my father and your father, my God, and your God”, hence he isn’t God, nor part of a trinity.

Question #2: What time was it?

Two of the gospels simply describe it to be at or after sunrise, another says “very early morning” which could mean before or after sunrise, and then the 4th says it was before sunrise, while it was still dark.

After sunrise is very different from darkness.

What time was it?
Matthew 28:1 At dawn After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
Mark 16:2 Just after sunrise Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb
Luke 24:1 Very early morning On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.
John 20:1 Before dawn while still dark Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.

Question #3: Did a discussion take place or not?

Did angels tell the women Jesus had risen and to tell the disciples, or did a young man in white, two men, or no one at all?

Did a discussion take place or not?
Matthew 28:5-7 One angel tells the women Jesus has risen, instructs them to tell the disciples The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
Mark 16:5-8 * A young man in white says Jesus has risen, and instructs to tell the disciples, BUT the women tell nothing to anyone As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’” Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.
Luke 24:5-8 Men said that Jesus had risen, no instructions though to tell the disciples In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ Then they remembered his words. (9-12 They told the disciples, without being instructed to)
John 20:1-11

No one said anything to her, she told others someone took Jesus’ body, and NOT that he had risen!

(the guards could have told her this)

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”   So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen. Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.) Then the disciples went back to where they were staying.

(Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene)

Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb

* Remember from Part 4 of this series, we discussed the corruption of Mark 9-20 as being a later addition to the Bible, which is not found in the most ancient manuscripts. Verses 9-20 contains the story of Jesus appearing to Mary, and drove out demons from her, and rebuked the 11 disciples as they ate, about them not believing. He tells them to spread the message, and that the people that believe and get baptized would be saved. He also says that those that hold snakes and drink poison will not be harmed.

If this is a corruption that was added later, this puts people at great risk of danger from snakes and poison. There are Pentecostal Christians today that take up snakes, and even their pastors have died from those snakes. Read my article titled "Snake Bites & Drinking Poison: The True Test of Faith in the Bible", to learn more about it.

Now, back to the contradicting story passages…

Question #4 – How did the women feel and react?

Were the women feeling afraid, happy, terrified and trembling, bewildered, shocked, upset, or crying?

Did they run to tell the disciples, or remained quiet and said nothing?

How did the women feel and react?
Matthew 28:8 Afraid, but happy Ran to tell disciples So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
Mark 16:8 Afraid, trembling, and bewildered Said nothing to no one Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.
Luke 24:9 Feelings not mentioned Told the disciples When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others.
John 20:1-11 Shocked, and upset because Jesus was removed by someone, then she stood outside the tomb crying Ran to tell Peter and another disciple

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen. Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.) Then the disciples went back to where they were staying.

(Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene)

Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb

Question #5 – Who (of all people) did Jesus appear to FIRST?

Did Jesus appear to (the two Marys), or (only Mary Magdalene), or (Cleopas and his companion), or (Cephas aka Peter)?

Who did Jesus appear to first?
Matthew 28:8-10

Mary Magdalene

Other Mary

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
Mark 16:9 Mary Magdalene (footnote states 9 onwards was not part of the original text), but the verses mention: “When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons.”
Luke 24:13-18

Cleopas

and his companion

Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them;  but they were kept from recognizing him. He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?” They stood still, their faces downcast. One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”
John 20:14 Mary Magdalene At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
1 Corinthians 15:5 Cephas (Peter) and that he appeared to Cephas

Question #6 – How did Jesus behave after the resurrection?

Did Jesus say to go to Galilee, or did he not have plans at all to go to Galilee? See the chart below for other questions in doubt.

Behavior of Jesus after the resurrection
Matthew 28:9-10 Says to go to Galilee where they can see him Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
Mark 16:9-15

Drove out 7 demons from Mary Magdalene

Then appears to two people

Appeared to 11 and rebuked them for lack of faith

Said to preach the Gospel

When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons. She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping. When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it. Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country. These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either. Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen. He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
Luke 24:13-20

Appeared to Cleopas and another

Asked them what they were talking about.

Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him. He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?” They stood still, their faces downcast. One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?” “What things?” he asked. “About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him*
John 20:16-17

Says that he hasn’t ascended yet, but that he will, and to tell the others.

No plans to see them at Galilee

Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”). Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”**

* Notice how they say Jesus was a prophet, and no mention of being the ‘son of God’, nor “God”.

** He says he is going to “my father and your father, my God, and your God”, hence he isn’t God, nor part of a trinity.

Question #7 – Which disciples went to the tomb?

Was it Peter, or Peter and another disciple, or no one at all?

Which disciples went to the tomb?
Matthew 28:8-10 None So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him.  Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
Mark 16:8-11 None Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid. When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons. She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping. When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it.
Luke 24:12 Peter Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened.
John 20:3-4

Peter

Other disciple

So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first.

Question #8 – Which disciple did Jesus appear to first?

Was it 11 disciples at once, or 2 walking in the countryside, or only Cephas aka Peter?

Which disciple did Jesus appear to first?
Matthew 28:16-18 11 disciples all at the same time in Galilee Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.  Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Mark 16:12-13 2 disciples while walking in the country Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country. These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.
Luke 24:13-16 2 disciples while walking Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him.
John 20:19-20 11 of the disciples together On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.
1 Corinthians 15:5 Cephas (Peter) and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve.

Question #9 – Were the disciples told to do anything?

Were they told to go to Galilee and make disciples and baptize and teach them, or were they asked for food and to preach about repentance and forgiveness and stay in the city of Jerusalem?

Were the disciples told to do anything?
Matthew 28:10 Go to Galilee Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
Matthew 28:19-20 Make disciples, baptize them, and teach them Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
Mark 16:14-16 Preach the gospel to everyone and baptize them Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen. He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
Luke 24:36-49

Asked them for food.

Preach repentance and forgiveness of sins

Stay in the city

(The disciples were eating, and he appeared to them in Jerusalem)

And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate it in their presence.* He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.” Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.

Acts 1:4-5 Stay in Jerusalem and wait On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

* Luke 24: 36-49 describes them eating fish at Jerusalem with the disciples (See also text in red in the next section in John 21: 1-20, that sounds like a merging of two different stories.) John’s account describes a scene of them fishing at the Sea of Galilee. Details are similar, despite having a very different scene described (one is a meal setting, the other is a fishing scene).

Question #10 – When and where did the ascension occur?

Were they at the mountain of Galilee and no ascension mentioned, or were they eating near Jerusalem and it happened on resurrection day, or did it happen in Bethany on resurrection day, or at the Sea of Galilee while fishing, or in Jerusalem at the Mount of Olives 40 days after the resurrection?

When and where did the ascension occur?
Matthew 28:16-20 Although at a mountain in Galilee, no ascension is mentioned. Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Mark 16:14-19

While eating, in or near Jerusalem

(Same day as resurrection)

Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen. He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.
Luke 24:50-53

After leading them to Bethany

(Same day as resurrection)

When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven. Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God.
John 21:1-20

Sea of Galilee while fishing

(3x total)

Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Galilee.

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?” “No,” they answered.* He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards. When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.   Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.” So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.

Acts 1:8-9, 12

Mount of Olives on the outskirt of Jerusalem

(40 days after resurrection)

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”  And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight.

Then the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives, a Sabbath day’s walk from the city.

Question #11 – How many people witnessed the ascension?

Was it 11 disciples, or was it 11 disciples plus two others and those with them (unknown number), or was it Peter, Thomas, Nathanael, James, John, and 2 Others?

How many people witnessed the ascension?
Matthew 28:1-20 None None, no ascension is mentioned.
Mark 16: 14-19 11 Disciples Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen. He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
Luke 33:35

11 Disciples

Two Others

Those with them -(number unknown)

They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together and saying, “It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.” Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.
John 21:1-2

Peter

Thomas

Nathanael

James

John

2 Others

Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Galilee. It happened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee (James and John), and two other disciples were together.

Conclusion:

After reading all these various accounts of various topics, how can anyone claim that these books are ‘inspired by God’ when they all contradict each other on practically every point, detail, characters, places, and chain of events? Does God forget his own story? I don’t think so.

In Islam, we do not even believe he was crucified, nor raised from the dead. Allah tells us that he saved Jesus and raised him to heaven, replacing him with another that was made to appear to be him.

“And their saying, "We killed the Messiah, `Isa son of Maryam, Messenger of Allah." … They did not kill him and they did not crucify him but it was made to seem so to them. Those who argue about him are in doubt about it. They have no real knowledge of it, just conjecture. But they certainly did not kill him. Allah raised him up to Himself. Allah is Almighty, All-Wise.” Qur’an 4:157-158
