Archbishop of Wales chooses EASTER to cast doubt on the Resurrection

One of Britain’s leading Anglican clerics has sparked controversy by casting doubts over the Resurrection of Jesus – just days before Easter.

The Archbishop of Wales, John Davies, has been accused of ‘sowing confusion’ over the biblical story that will be celebrated by millions around the world today.

Asked in an interview about the New Testament account of Jesus rising from the tomb, the Archbishop said: ‘I don’t think any of us actually knows, quite frankly.’

He told online magazine Christian Today that it was ‘terribly hard’ for people to grasp the idea of a bodily resurrection.

The 65-year-old Archbishop, who was elected in September to head the Church in Wales – the Welsh equivalent of the Church of England – said something ‘radical’ had happened that had changed people’s lives.

[…]  Former Bishop of Rochester Michael Nazir-Ali said there was plenty of evidence in the Bible to support the ‘simplest explanation’ of the empty tomb – that Christ rose from the dead.

In a stinging attack, he added: ‘There are many things the Archbishop may not know, but there is enough for him to preach the Easter faith confidently and to strengthen the faith of others rather than sow doubt and confusion at this central time in our calendar.’
