Reply to "The Word ["Amen"]"

Who cares who wrote it, or whether it's 4th or 5th hand, is it a FACT that there is a DISCREPANCY in Jesus's (or whoever you would like the author to be) teachings?

It's also a known fact that there are indeed discrepancies between the different Gospel texts. The list is well-known and available to anyone who cares to look for them and were noticed by Christians themselves as early as the 3rd century


alleged Discrepancy or blatant Contradiction, please pick one...

1 He places the purging of the temple at the BEGINNING of Jesus' ministry whereas Matthew, Mark and Luke place it at the end (even implying it was the reason for his crucifixion: "When the chief priests and scribes heard of it, they kept looking for a way to kill him"). in John here is no connection at all drawn between Jesus's driving money changers out of the Temple and his death. Why? Probably because John wanted to emphasize different tings about who he THOUGHT Jesus was. John's INTERPRETATION was that it was Jesus' mission to purify religious practice and so he puts it at the beginning of the story. And obviously you can't crucify him at the start of the story and so John erases the connection.


surely this is the only logical explanation.... um.. ok...
It's funny how we are expected to be so open-minded about other beliefs, but we can't expect the same open-mindedness and logical deductive reasoning from said religous whiners Roll Eyes
