Folly of the Synoptic Gospels

Mark 16:9
Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

Where did the story of the 7 devils come from?

Luke 8:2-3

2And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,

Perhaps from Luke!

NO mention in the Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke when this occurred, where this occurred, who witnessed it just that Jesus cast out 7 devils out of Mary Magdalene and he counted them too.

This is not mentioned at all in the Gospel of John!


3And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others,

which ministered unto him of their substance.

This is so amazing that anyone gives the Gospel of Mark and the Gospel of Luke any credence. The above verses are ludicrous!

Both Mark and Luke were not followers or disciples/apostles of Jesus Christ, yet they come up with this nonsense about Mary Magdalene!

Then Luke tries to infer that a bunch of women were supporting Jesus Christ and his apostles!

(Kind of like Obama …Susan Rice….Hillary Clinton….Joe Lieberman….etc)

Luke seems to be implying more that with his

ministered unto him of their substance!”

Nowhere in the bible does it say that these women were ministering to Jesus Christ out of their substance. IF anything He ministered to them out of His substance.  He did not need an entourage of women to support him nor minister unto Him! Makes them sound like a bunch or nuns who were in charge of Jesus as if He could not have accomplished his purpose without them. 

He was able to feed 5000 men, not including women and children, I am sure he could take care of himself and his apostles and his followers out of his Father’s substance!

Why do the “scholars”, priests, pastors, and all the rest not expose these lies?

I think it is clear that Luke and Mark were trying to de-masculate Jesus Christ and his disciples. Seems that Matthew, Mark and Luke just did not have respect for the apostles and the followers of Jesus Christ. That’s why there are so many references to Peter, James and John in a derogatory kind of way in their gospels, in my opinion.

All Luke has done here with these two verses is add innuendo and gossip!

 More than likely, it came from his own warped imagination.

He sounds like a mean old woman with an axe to grind and I get the feeling he is jealous and he thinks he is god. 


Please read the post: James and John Zebedee.


Luke even contradicts himself.

(Which is Par for the Course)

One minute Mary and the women are supporting Jesus and the apostles

and the next chapter Jesus sends his apostles without anything!

Luke 9:1-5

1Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.2And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.3And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.4And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.5And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.

What about the women? 

OMissons of the Synoptic Gospels:

One example, is that the Synoptic gospels omit Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem on a colt of an ass and the people at the Jewish feast lay down palm branches and the people are believing in Him.

Another omission is the miracle of the raising of Lazarus!

IF you read the Gospel of John and compare to the three Synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) – it seems they mock the events that they do include from the Gospel of John to the point of unbelievability and exclude really important events.

I believe it is ‘purposeful folly’ on their part!


Luke 9:49-50

49And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.50And Jesus said unto him,

Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

This is nonsense.

First of all, I doubt this happened at all!

Except in a synoptic kind of way, which is a misnomer, but

As an example:

Let’s assume there is one that was casting out devil’s in his name and his name was Father Gabriele Amorth

“who has been the Holy See’s chief exorcist for 25 years.”

Chief exorcist says Devil is in Vatican

IF you read the link above it sounds to me like according to Father Gabriele Amorth  the Vatican is against the Holy See. But in reality, the Vatican is for the Holy See (they put the POPE in his seat by voting), yet this man says the devil is in the Vatican,

so just because someone isn’t against you, does not mean they are for you!

That is what deception is all about…… Deceiving!

SO my point is that the Synoptic Jesus may or may not have said the following verse, but it isn’t true, hence it is not the true Jesus that said it, therefore this statement attributed to Jesus comes from the deceiver….right?

Another example would be Robert Tilton:

Scattin’ in Tongues!!!. – YouTube

who casts out devils in Jesus’s name and yet we all know why he did the things he did and said the stupid things he said. MONEY! Was he against Jesus….no, thats how he made his millions! Was he for Jesus, that is a judgement one has to make, unless you subscribe to the Synoptic nonsense about judgement:

 Matthew 7:1
Judge not, that ye be not judged. 

Another Synoptic version of judgement is

Luke 6:37
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

Which is basically saying if I don’t make a judgement about right and wrong and remain clueless I won’t be condemned therefore anything is okay in the eyes of God as long as I don’t think about it.

‘Ignorance is bliss’ sort of thinking.

But in reality the reason the Synoptics say that Jesus said this ‘folly’ is so that they won’t be judged by you and you will follow blindly their nonsense and they can get rich and tell you lies and speak gibberish!


The next verse is outrageous that Luke credits to Jesus Christ following:

Luke 9:59-60

59And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.60Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

What if everyone obeyed this verse Let the dead bury the dead. Then what?

We would have a bunch of dead bodies around that are unburied.

Is that what the kingdom of God is like?

I am so sure Jesus would act so unconcerned for someone taking care of their family even in death! This is another crazy saying attributed to Jesus and totally uncaring and out of character for Jesus.

Definitely shows Luke’s character!

 Why does anyone believe anything Luke said? There are all kinds of lies in his gospel and just because two other gospels support his lies does not mean it isn’t still a lie.


Luke 13:32-33

32And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.

33Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow,

and the day following:

for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

Why not?

It’s not like it had not happened before! 

Luke 13:32-33 makes Jesus sound like a lunatic.

It makes no sense whatsoever.

I’m sorry, but this is nuts! Notice the word “prophet”.

(like Obama)

Maybe Christopher Walken of SNL is the Synoptic Jesus????

(only he would know;o

I think that is the point of most of the gospel of Luke is to make Jesus sound crazy when in reality it is LUKE who is nuts. FIrst he has Jesus saying that the third day I shall be perfected and then says 

Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following.

He just said the third day he shall be perfected and then talks about walking?

Was there a 3 day walkathon?

What does one have to do with the other? Nothing!

And then, the “for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem?”

What does walking have to do with a prophet perishing out of Jerusalem?

The whole verse is outlandish!


Another ridiculous outlandish statement the Synoptic Jesus makes in the the Gospel of Matthew:

Matthew 8:19-20

 19And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

 20And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

Does this make ANY sense to you?

He might as well have said:

“The sky is blue, how are you?”


How about the Cursing of the Fig Tree Quandary?

The Fig Tree – Blessed are the Barren

if you read Luke from front to back you will see how Luke is just a book of anecdotes and miracles, without sense. The writer is fixated on temptation, judgement, death and hell and most of all RIDICULE!

 That is not Jesus of the Gospel of John

The writer of the Luke 13:32-33 was stark-raving mad!
