Did the disciples steal Jesus’ body? Is that why the tomb was empty? Matthew relates in his gospel that the Jewish leaders bribed the guards who had been at Jesus’ tomb to say just that (Matthew 28:11-15). I have heard critics say that Matthew lied and included this in his gospel to explain away arguments against the resurrection and to deflect blame from his friends.
I know that no part of scripture is untrue.
