Question Imagination?

As I was reading through some material relating the story of the crucifixion of Jesus, I thought this is a great story for a horror film, kinda like "nightmare on elm street".

Look at matt. xxvii:50-53
"Jesus, When he had cried again with a loud voice yielded up the ghost.
And, behold the veil of the Temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; And the earth did quake and the rocks rent, and the graves were opened and many bodies of the Saints which slept arose and came out of the graves after his resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared unto many."

Nature has been turned upside down.

Dead men walk the streets, dust changed back into living beings.
Did Steven King or Clive Barker help write
these stories?

Of course you would expect this account from men who saw people with no heads and eyes in their chests.
Or people with one big eye in the middle of their foreheads.
These are the same people who Christians use to give validity to the existance of the historical figure of Jesus.

It is just plain absurd to believe any
of these accounts.

But giving the benefit of the doubt to the christian beliefs and accounts of the crucifixion, my question would be: If there is a God as christians believe, he would be the creator of all of the natural laws of the universe.

This divine creator would be the author of all the laws of physics, biology and scientific investigation.

Why would he break his own laws?
It would seem that the last thing that an administrator would do, would be to break his own rules, or methods of operation.
Clearly the above accounts are not consistant with the physical laws of nature, that he himself authored.
