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