What evangelical apologists are still trying to show... is that their version of the resurrection was the most compatible with accepting all the details of the gospel Easter narratives as true and non-negotiable... [D]efenders of the resurrection assume that their opponents agree with them that all the details are true, that only the punch line is in question. What they somehow do not see is that to argue thus is like arguing that the Emerald City of Oz must actually exist since, otherwise, where would the Yellow Brick Road lead?... We simply have no reason to assume that anything an ancient narrative tells us is true.
