I remember reading a sci fi story, maybe in a collection of Alternate History shorts that I really enjoyed, but for the life of me cannot remember.
It featured a team of scientists that had developed a way to open a window to the past, but they found that things didn’t always happen quite the same way. Once they saw an event with 2 roman soldiers, another time with 3, due to some form of quantum uncertainty.
This built up to a religious scientist finding the sermon on the mount, then using it to tune to the resurrection. He sees the event, and starts making preparations to publish the recordings in scientific journals, but on a later rewatch sees that the body remains in the tomb and the disciples decide among themselves to spread the teachings as if he had been reborn.
Anyone know what this story is?
