corruptionJesus said, ‘Satan is the father of lies’ (John 8:44) but here is a good question…‬‪Why did Jesus lie?‬

Thousands of books have been written
to try to explain these lies of Jesus:‬


‪Jesus said,
“‘Go to the festival yourselves. I am not going to this festival, for my time has not yet fully come.’ After saying this, he remained in Galilee. But after his brothers had gone to the festival, then he also went, not publicly but as it were in private” (John 7.8-10).‬

‪Here Jesus is clearly saying one thing and doing another. I suspect this may have been part of a pattern otherwise it would not have been inserted into the story so casually.‬


‪In Luke 23:43 Jesus lied to the thief,‬ ‪”Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.”‬

‪This obviously has to be false, for Jesus was supposed to lay dead in the tomb for three days following his crucifixion. The death of Jesus (as in the utter absence of God for a period of time) is an important part some Christian theology. ‬

‪If the thief went to Paradise that day he did so without ever seeing Jesus there.‬‪ Furthermore, Jesus did not ascend to Heaven for 40 more days according to one version of the story. ‬


‪Another place where it appears that Jesus lied is in His statement in Matt. 24:35:
“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” ‬

‪Here Jesus is assuring us that His words will appear somewhere even if heaven and earth disappears. Just for emphasis, this statement is repeated in Mark 13:31 and Luke 21:33.‬

‪But the words of Jesus are indeed already completely lost. All we have are copies of copies as most christian scholars will attest. ‬

‪The original texts of the original 4 gospels are all lost and his language, Aramaic, is extinct and no longer used anywhere.‬

‪The reason for the discrepancies which lead so many different sects is because the exact words and meanings of Jesus’ words are lost forever and no authoritative version can be relied on even today.‬


‪Jesus says, “Heaven…will pass away” yet this is not compatible with any previous statements about Heaven being ‘eternal.’ Jesus must be lying when he refers to “eternal life.”


‪Regarding signs Jesus lies several times:‬‪
1. In Mark 8:12 Jesus says that “no sign shall be given to this generation.” ‬

‪This is either a deliberate lie or the claims of miracles are all lies.

‪In contradiction to Mark, in Matthew 12:39 Jesus says that only “one sign” would be given – the sign of Jonah.  Jesus says that just as Jonah spent three days and three nights in the belly of the fish, so he will spend three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Here Jesus makes an incorrect prediction – he only spends two nights in the tomb (Friday and Saturday nights), not three nights.‬

‪2. THEN, In contradiction to both Mark and Matthew, the gospel of John speaks of “many signs” that Jesus did:‬

‪a. The miracle of turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana is called the beginning (or first) of “the signs” that Jesus did (John 2:11).‬

‪b. The healing at Capernaum is the “second sign” (John 4:54).‬

‪c. According to these stories, many people were following Jesus “because they were seeing the signs He was performing” (John 6:2).‬

So Jesus lied when he said there will be ‘no sign given’. ‬


Jesus, if he had the omniscience of a god, told this lie:‬

“…Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” (Matthew 16: 27, 28)‬

‪But everyone in his presence did die without seeing the kingdom which was promised. Today they are still waiting for the second coming. Because it never happened and it clearly won’t.

‪Jesus either told all of these lies – or his exact words have been lost (see example 3). ‬
God has not interceded to clear any of it up. ‬And so the branches of Christianity have warred against each other for centuries.‬

  1. 1 John 3 says:

    Lean not on your own understanding. When you post these “contradictions” you make yourself sound so blind. The devil really is confusing you. This used to happen to me a lot. You see if the devil can confuse you then you won’t grow. Open your eyes and your ears. Ask God for understanding. First with John 7:8 HE says for my time has not fully come. Read John 7:8-10 in the TLB. It says, I’ll come later, when it is the right time. Jesus was saying I’m not ready to come yet. I will come later. It’s in the bible. You just can’t see it unless you are in love with God. If you seek evil you will find evil. If you seek good you will find good.

      This is too funny, why were you reading this blog post in the first place? Perhaps maybe you are doubting your belief in the one you call ‘God’?

    • glebealyth says:

      Why are you leaning on your own understanding, 1 John 3?

      You have, instead of accepting what the scripture says, taken the inconvenient words and applied your own understanding to them ti reduce the discomfort you feel at the discovery that your favourite book is at odds with what you have been taught,
      Of course some of the modern translations/versions render the words in the way you report, This is because the committees which create them include folk who have heard these truths about Jesus’ lies and are desperate to hide them from those who, like yourself, will believe their lies and continue to send them money.

      There is a reason wht xians are flocks of sheep. The Good Shepherd is merely looking after you until you are fattened for slaughter.


  2. 1 John 3 says:

    Second you said in Luke 23:43 Jesus couldn’t have gone to paradise right then because Jesus did not ascend into heaven for 40 more days. As a matter of fact John 20:17 Jesus himself says, to Mary “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father…” Here is why you can not lean to your own understanding… Do you know how to make electricity? Do you know how the world stays in orbit held by nothing? Jesus said, Today you will be with me in Paradise. He was not lying. Isaiah 9:6 says “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. In John 14:9 Jesus says, “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.” In John 8:58 Jesus said, “Before Abraham was born, I am!” In Numbers 23:19 KJV “God is not a man,… In John 4:24 “God is Spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” 1 Corinthians 15:50 says, “Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God” Psalm 139:8 says, if I make my bed in the hell, behold, thou art there (KJV).”
    The man was with Jesus in paradise….but Jesus fleshly body was in a grave. If flesh was in a grave…his Spirit was in paradise…. God is one “and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live (1 Corinthians 8:6 NIV).”

    I could try to explain it to you, but if you don’t have faith in God, all my explaining would be pointless. Please ask God to give you understanding and pray, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven, give us this day, our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever in Jesus name. Amen. You really nee deliverance from evil. Really.


  3. 1 John 3 says:

    #3 There will be a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation 21:1) His words are not lost. “No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it (Deuteronomy 30:14 NIV).” “…imagine a woman who has ten coins and loses one. Won’t she light a lamp and scour the house, looking in every nook and cranny until she finds it? And when she finds it you can be sure she’ll call her friends and neighbors: ‘Celebrate with me! I found my lost coin!’ Count on it-that’s the kind of party God’s angels throw every time one lost soul turns to God (Luke 15:8-10.”


  4. 1 John 3 says:

    #4 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea (Revelation 21:1 KJV).” “I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven (2 Corinthians 12:2 KJV).”


  5. 1 John 3 says:

    #5 “But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth (Matthew 12:39-40).”

    “…your faith has healed you (Mark 10:52 Holman Christian Standard Bible).”

    “These signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;…(Mark 16:17 NIV).”

    “And he could there do no mighty work, except that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching (Mark 6:5-6 KJV).”

    “Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:22 NIV).”

    “I have not found so great faith, no not in Israel: (Luke 7:9 KJV).”

    “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord (James 1:6-7 KJV).”

    Matthew 12:40 “For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth (Matthew 12:40 NIV).”
    Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible
    “…To solve this difficulty, and set the matter in a clear light, let it be observed, that the three days and three nights, mean three natural days, consisting of day and night, or twenty four hours, and are what the Greeks call “night days”; but the Jews have no other way of expressing them, but as here; and with them it is a well known rule, and used on all occasions, as in the computation of their feasts and times of mourning, in the observance of the passover, circumcision, and divers purifications, that , “a part of a day is as the whole” (n): and so, whatever was done before sun setting, or after, if but an hour, or ever so small a time, before or after it, it was reckoned as the whole preceding, or following day; and whether this was in the night part, or day part of the night day, or natural day, it mattered not, it was accounted as the whole night day: by this rule, the case here is easily adjusted; Christ was laid in the grave towards the close of the sixth day, a little before sun setting, and this being a part of the night day preceding, is reckoned as the whole; he continued there the whole night day following, being the seventh day; and rose again early on the first day, which being after sun setting, though it might be even before sun rising, yet being a part of the night day following, is to be esteemed as the whole; and thus the son of man was to be, and was three days and three nights in the grave; and which was very easy to be understood by the Jews; and it is a question whether Jonas was longer in the belly of the fish (Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible http://biblehub.com/matthew/12-40.htm). ”

    “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved–you and your entire household (Acts 16:31 CEB).”



  6. 1 John 3 says:

    #6 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err (Mark 12:27 KJV).”

    “Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us (Hebrews 12:1 NASB).”

    “He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live; And whosever liveth and believeth in me shall never die…(John 11:25-26).”

    “Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad (John 8:56 NIV).”

    “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be decieved:…(1 Corinthians 6:9 KJV)
