As Dr. Wenham states early in his introduction, "The story of Jesus' resurrection is told by five different writers, whose accounts differ from each other to an astonishing degree." Wenham begins by setting the scene of Jerusalem and its environs, going on to describe the main actors in the events with particular attention to Mary Magdalene and the five writers themselves, and then examining in detail all the biblical narratives from Good Friday through Easter Day to the Ascension. He concludes that the various accounts as they stand can be satisfactorily reconciled to provide a trustworthy record for the church. Valuable appendices elucidate Wenham's response to the technicalities of gospel criticism.

John Wenham was a member of the Society for New Testament Studies. While living in Jerusalem, his curiosity led him to begin a detailed examination of the people and places mentioned in the Easter Story. Easter Enigma is the fruit of this remarkable piece of detective work. After a long and distinguished career in New Testament studies, John Wenham died in 1996.Review:
"Virtually the whole New Testament establishment believe that there is no possibility of harmonizing the five accounts of the resurrection appearances. John Wenham takes them on with charm, common sense and erudition...such a reconstruction is entirely plausible" -- MICHAEL GREEN
