The absence of information in secular accounts and records for on sacred events and miracles are considered, today.  One of the fighters at “Yahoo! Answers” who use the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information shared) posted the following:

Do you find it odd that the dead were risen from their graves after Jesus’s resurrection walked into Jerusalem?

were supposedly seen by many people and yet only one guy wrote about the occurrence?

You think the Romans would have noticed that.

Matthew 27: 51-53 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split.The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus’ resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.  Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God:  and they that hear shall live.  For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;  And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.  Marvel not at this:  for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,  And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.  (John 5:  24-29, KJV)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Those Having the True Secrets? (04/14/2015); On Saying the Truth? (12/18/2014); What Is Truth? (12/19/2014); The Judges Who Condemned Jesus? (01/17/2014); About the Second Coming? (01/18/2014); Jesus Scourged (04/05/2014); Brothers, Not Equals  (04/06/2014)

“Anonymous”, when they were first written, the New Testament accounts of miracles and sacred events we now receive through writings in the public domain (or available with copyright restrictions) were originally circulated and shared as personal memoirs, private correspondence, and the peculiar inheritance and tools maintained only by apostles, priests and prophets.  Such material was not intended for those outside the circle of believers.

Christian reports and writings did not come under the severe academic, intellectual, and pedestrian scrutiny we see today.
Keep in mind that the anecdotes, gospels, epistles, testimonies, and declarations of faith valued among the followers of Jesus were of little importance within the framework for systematic military conquest and the rule of nations as pursued by Rome.  Jesus stood accused before the governor, Pontius Pilate, as an unknown figure put on trial by the Jews for their capital crime of blasphemy.  Pilate knew nothing of the crowds that had assembled to hear Jesus speak, that had been healed, and that had been convinced Jesus is the Messiah.  Knowing that such reports would be met with condemnation, indifference, and skepticism, even the Jews who accused Jesus, gave Pilate no description of Christ’s ministry.

Correctly understood, the holy writings (i.e., both Old and New Testament) convey sacred knowledge, and spirit matter from the makeup of divinity (e.g., faith, holiness, longsuffering, wisdom, wrath against sin).  The Scriptures are fitted together to exist as a closed system of divine law, history, and prophesy.  No man receives such truth except through operations of GOD.  Consider again the teachings:

(1.)  1st Corinthians 12:  3, King James Version (KJV):  3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed:  and that, no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

(2.)  John 3:  12, KJV:  3 If I have told you of earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (3.)  2nd Corinthians 1:  18, KJV:  18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
