Sins Of Jesus (Part 1)
Why did Jesus lie...?
Jesus told lies when he was questioned by a high priest after he was arrested. In fact, Jesus packed three whoppers into one single verse:
John 18:19-20 King James 2000 Bible (©2003)
The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.
Jesus answered him, I spoke openly to the world; I always taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, where the Jews always met; and in secret have I said nothing.
The three lies are:
1) Jesus stated he always taught in the synagogues or at the temple.
2) Jesus stated he spoke openly to the world.
3) Jesus stated he said nothing in secret.
Why did Jesus lie?
And aren't all liars said to be condemned?
While Jesus did much of his teaching at the synagogue or temple, those were not the only places he taught.
Mattew states 5:1-3
"Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them. He said: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Jesus teach in Parables:
Matthew 13:1-3 states
That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed.
Clearly, Jesus did not always teach at the synagogue or temple.
Jesus stated he spoke openly to the world. What does "openly" mean? Openly means honestly and with clarity. The dictionary defines "openly" as meaning the following:
frankly: without making any attempt at concealment
Did Jesus speak openly to the people? Jesus often taught using parables. Parables are stories which relay a message using words as the vehicle. Even the disciples couldn't understand what Jesus was attempting to say and they often had to ask him what his words meant:
Mark 4:10-13 states:
When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, “‘they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!’[a]” Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable?
Jesus announced only to his close associates what his wordy teaching really meant. He did this in order to hide the truth which was revealed only to his "special" followers. It isn't simply a matter of the common people not understanding what Jesus was saying. It was a deliberate attempt by Jesus to obfuscate the meaning. This is not teaching in openness. It is teaching with deceptive intentions.
Lie No. 3
Jesus stated that he said nothing in secret.
If this is true then Jesus should have taught the people he preached to the same things he disclosed to his disciples. Once again Jesus (actually the author of the Gospel of John), is exposed as lying to the high priest.
As already noted, Jesus said that his close followers were allowed to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven that others were not allowed to know. It follows that the disciples must have been taught some things privately and these things were not revealed to the public by Jesus.
Mark 4:10-12 states
And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.
And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see
