The Anointing of Jesus: A Contradiction?

There are various ways Christians have attempted to resolve this apparent contradiction. Here are some links to internet resources:

The Anointing of Jesus

Women Anointing Jesus: The Same Story?

Why Are There Differences in the Gospels?
by Mike Licona

The types of explanations Licona provides in this lecture would be considered by some Evangelicals to violate Biblical inerrancy. I myself am not sure they do violate inerrancy. Mike Licona and Norman Geisler are two prominent figures in the modern inerrancy debate. With the Geisler group considering Licona teaching heresy. Licona's explanations might be applicable to the issue of the anointing of Jesus.
