In the Gospel of Matthew,
Jesus predicts the betrayal and his death and resurrection to his disciples
four times before the actual events occur.
Once while they were staying in Galilee after He took Peter, James, and John to the mountain to show them a vision of Elias and Moses and then he cured a lunatic:
22And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:23And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again.
And they were exceeding sorry.
The second time:
17And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,18Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death,19And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.
And the third time two days before passover:
1And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,2Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.
Isn’t it odd that none of his disciples asked who would betray Jesus until the fourth revelation (according to the gospel of Matthew) at the passover dinner?
Does that sound normal?
And then a fourth time at the passover dinner:
And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
All the other gospels do not have these revelations of the future betrayal in their accounts, except for the betrayal announcement at the Last Passover Dinner by all four gospels.
The gospel of Matthew seems to be prophecying betrayal 4 times, yet as I said earlier nobody seems to interested until the Last Supper and that just does not sound plausible. I would imagine every disciple or apostle that heard that the first time would have asked who was going to betray Jesus.
IN another article I believe I prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the prophecies in the Synoptic Gospels are actually not prophecies, but telling what had already happened,
which makes the Synoptic gospels fraudulent and deceptive!
I would imagine that the disciples would have been
vexed with suspicion
about each other!
Not one disciple asks who was the betrayer!
After the first revelation they were exceedingly sorry, though.
Give me a break!
None of them seemed too concerned about the betrayal until the fourth revelation
according to the Gospel of Matthew!
Because it is phony-baloney!
These are false prophecies given after the events took place to give
the gospel of Matthew’s rendition of Jesus Christ
