I have a question about the context of the scriptures as relates to the buying and preparing of the burial spices for messiah. Now the question does not involve other scripture but only the buying in Mark and preparing in Luke. Mark has buy after a day of rest and Luke has prepare before a day of rest. If Luke tells us that the women prepared spices before a day of rest on Saturday then must not Mark be our answer to what and when? --what spices did they prepare, when did they get the spices mentioned in Luke. If Luke was the only scripture reference to spices we could speculate all of these. But proper Biblical exegesis tells us to look around, what does the Word have to say-- so we look to Mark and we see that they bought the spices before they prepared them. This is the only option because having Mark come after the day of rest then has us adding to Luke the what and when. Adding to the Word is not allowed and not even needed- the women bought the spices they prepared- simple right? I am looking for a critique of this exegesis- it seems very clear that the women bought after a day of rest and prepared before a day of rest- hense they did this on Friday after Thursdays day of rest of the first day of the feast of unleavened and before the day of rest on Saturday- both days of rests are taught in the scripture and tell us the true story- do they not.
