Why on earth would anyone write Mark as the writer of the gospel, knowing full and well that it is not Mark of the apostles? The only reason would be to deceive the masses, otherwise why not write John Mark as the author of the this gospel?
Again I ask, if it was not intended to deceive then, why not write John Mark as it’s author or another name?
Mark the apostle is not written about in the gospel of John! He is only in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke (the synoptic gospels) as an apostle.
Yet even the scholars and scribes say that Mark of the synoptic gospels is not the writer of the gospel of Mark. So, who is this Mark that wrote the gospel of Mark?
I don’t think anyone really knows!
You have to admit it is deceptive to use a name taught to be a disciple in the synoptic gospels even though he is not a disciple.
All my life, I assumed that Mark who wrote the gospel of Mark was Mark the apostle of Jesus Christ written about in the synoptic versions!
So I was deceived!
The people that put this bible together should have been truthful about the name given as the author of this gospel? I think the motive for the gospel of Mark and it’s authors name that was assigned to it begins in a deceptive way and makes me distrust it’s content, now that I know that whoever put it together intended to deceive to begin with!
I also assumed that Matthew and Luke were apostles of Jesus Christ!
But as most of us start out as children and then grow up and actually take the bible seriously it is a hard lesson when you find that you have been lied to by the absence of that information from the start!
I can’t help think about Jesus Christ entering Jerusalem riding on a colt of an ass and the meaning of that.
The story about Jesus’s entrance to Jerusalem on the colt of an ass and the peoples reaction at the Jewish feast is written about in depth by John who was a chosen apostle of Jesus Christ. You can tell he knew of what he wrote because of the details.The synoptic gospels write it a different way and they show that they were not involved with Jesus Christ by their lack of knowledge and details.
In the gospel of Matthew, Jesus rides on a colt of an ass into Jerusalem totally out of sequence. After Jesus arrives he throws the money changers out of the temple which actually happened right after the wedding in Cana in the gospel of John.
At the beginning of Jesus’s ministry right after he is baptized by John the baptist He goes to the temple in Jerusalem and throws out the money changers but the gospels of Matthew , Mark and Luke have Jesus being tempted of the devil in the desert for forty days while he is really at a wedding in Cana, etc.
Jesus says in the gospel of John that all that came before him are liars and thieves.
I think that is what He means …the synoptic versions of Jesus Christ!
They do happen to be the first 3 gospels before the Gospel of John.
Matthew, Mark and Luke do not write about Lazarus being raised from the dead which happened right before Jesus travels to Jerusalem. The raising of Lazarus was the turning point in the hearts of the people towards their Messiah, Jesus Christ.
Why do they skip that?
They don’t want you to believe the truth!
I believe the synoptic gospels want to fictionalize Jesus Christ by mixing it up and confuse us so that we might give up the desire to know the truth and know God’s son. They want us to follow them, and to serve them and promote their propaganda!
IF they wanted to serve us by telling the truth….they would have told the truth about Jesus Christ! But they didn’t!
just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
Big contradiction about serving!
Tell me who is telling the truth?
I think it is the gospel of John!
IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN
Jesus said he is the Bread of Life and our meat is to believe in Him and HE also said His meat was to do the will of God!
I believe that serving Jesus is telling the truth about Him! If you don’t believe the truth about Him, how can you serve Him? That is the point of the synoptic gospels is to change your destiny and make you follow a false Jesus Christ that they made up in opposition to the truth which is in the gospel of John. That is why their versions of what happened are totally out of sequence, and even jumbled between themselves, to confuse you and I, and get you away from God and His Son and the truth!
I JUST READ A BOOK CALLED ELIE WIESEL CALLED NIGHT WITH MY DAUGHTER.
Very interesting book!
Seems the Nazis were mocking Jesus (a Jew) by feeding only a piece of bread to the Jews in WWll when they were in their maniacal spiritual and physical vengeance to prove him wrong (as the Synoptic Gospels also do in opposition to the Gospel of John) such as at the “death camps in Poland” and everywhere else they managed to invade and corrupt.
Mustard seed faith in its power…. later Mustard Gas used in WWl and WWll (Not in the Gospel of John)
Temptation turning stones to bread (not in the Gospel of John)
Born in a Manger which is an anagram of German (not in the Gospel of John)
Faith (Synoptic) /Believe (Gospel of John)
Disdain and disrespect for another man whose father had died by not caring and telling the disciple to let the dead bury the dead, very nazish (Synoptic Gospels)/Glorifying his Father’s name I AM and raising Lazarus (Gospel of John)
There are so many more examples!
Maybe WWl and WWll and what is happening today might not have occurred if people had believed Jesus in the Gospel of John instead of combining with fiction and self promotion of a religious/business entity bent on deception, vengeance, control, slavery, prostitution of kids heterosexual and homosexual and plain ole human suffering at its core as John Paul said “homosexuals are in the heart of the church,” along with “all people who suffer.” That church has grown lately with the Ecumenical movement and all the others into a big world wide mess. If you read the news it seems there isn’t much good. Geez I wonder why. They love to make people suffer because they hate Jesus in the Gospel of John and will do anything and everything to humans to prove him wrong.
Yea the mustard spread like a weed and isn’t the world a better place today NOT.
What is the Heart of Roman Catholicism and many other religions? Think about it!
Maybe it is good idea to get homosexuals
and all that suffer
out of the heart of that church
so that they might have a chance to really heal!
Back to comparing the Gospel of John to the SIGNS of Synopsis
Guess what, sequence of events does matter as a timeline in a trial!
For example: You are a resident of New Jersey. You went on vacation to Santa Fe. You have been accused of a crime in New Jersey by three people who say they saw you burn down a house.
It matters where you were before the crime, at the time of the crime, and after the crime. If the crime occurred while you were away it proves that you are innocent of the crime! It makes a big difference when you left for your vacation and when you returned to New Jersey! If you have witnesses in Santa Fe that testifies that you were there when the crime occurred, that proves your innocence! Just because there are three witnesses that say you were in New Jersey and they saw you at the crime scene, does not mean that you are the criminal. They might be complicit in a conspiracy to destroy you!
The same goes for the bible and the contradictions in it!
Then there is the burden of proof and preponderance of evidence standards that are involved in pursuit of justice!
With the bible we have the four gospels, the OT, and the other books. We have historical accounts, evidence on earth, and most of all: faith and plain good sense.
But to have faith in stupidity is stupid! I believe in miracles and they cannot be explained other than they are miracles and I believe God and his Son do them all the time. I can even believe that God and His Son can be in two places at one time! To me that is not beyond Their capability. I believe They can stop the sun, etc!
There is common sense we have to use called JUDGEMENT which God gave each of us.
God gave us minds to use with our hearts (non physical)! He gave us plenty of evidence, but so did the deceiver! So we have to determine what is true and what is not true! If the synoptics say Jesus Christ the Son of God is being tempted in the desert by Satan for 40 days and John says he was at a wedding we have to determine which accounts are telling the truth. And like I said earlier it is possible for Jesus to be at two different places at one time. But nevertheless what is transpiring is important and what Jesus says is important.
We have all known liars in our lifetimes so it is not good sense to believe both accounts without seeing if it is the same Jesus Christ and you can tell by what the writer is telling us that he says. And just because 3 people say the same thing or similar things doesn’t mean it is so.
SO you compare the synoptic gospels and see if they are witnesses and if they are in agreement. Often they seem to agree in some respects, but in others they are way out of whack, then you see if the differences are reasonable.
I expect a lot, lot, lot, lot, lot from God and His Son, because of who They are!
I expect truth!
I also realize that there is the opposite, and I expect lies from that person. And it makes sense that the deceiver would deceive by including itself in the bible! If I were a devil I would want to go where I would cause the most problems. The bible, the church institution, and the people involved! The devil already has the unbelievers, so they are of no consequence until they truly turn to follow Jesus Christ.
Conceptually: Kind of like Order vs Chaos!
Usually Truth is in order and Lies are chaotic!
If something doesn’t make any sense, no matter how you look at it, then it probably is wrong!
If something makes sense, no matter how you look at it, then it probably is right!
Men wrote the gospels and the books in the bible and some of those men may have been influenced by the Holy Spirit and some may have been influenced by an unholy spirit!
When I speak of Holy I don’t mean just because a man wears a white cloak and outwardly prays and says nice soothing words will I believe it.
TO tell you the truth I have never ever seen a HOLY Person but I know that GOD is HOLY and so is His Son and I expect the truth from THEM.
Truth is Holy!
I do not expect it of any man, because I know that they are not holy, even when they try to be holy, or to act holy! There is nothing wrong with trying to be holy as much as we can! But I have never ever seen holiness in a man, woman, etc. only moments of holiness when someone speaks of the truth with the heart, and I have seen that, but not very much.
No Sign or The Sign of Jonah(Jonas)
12And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you,
There shall no sign be given unto this generation.
“Pope Benedict XVI meets journalists aboard the flight to Madrid (AP Photo/Gregorio Borgia)”
“Of course, World Youth Day cannot be an isolated incident: it is part of a larger journey, which has been prepared by the way of the Cross which has travelled to different countries already uniting young people in the sign of the Cross and the wonderful sign of the Virgin Mary.“
The author of the Gospel of Mark says that there would be no sign given the generation of his gospel,
the gospel of Luke said that the only sign for that generation would be the sign of Jonah and the Gospel of Luke is the only gospel that includes the virgin birth
the sign of the Virgin Mary is offered as a sign by Roman Catholic Benedict XVI to encourage WYD support for this generation and not only is that a sign
but now he says:
“It seems to me that the World Youth Day should be considered in this sense, as a sign, a part of a great journey, which creates friendships, open borders and demonstrates that is good to be with God, and that God is with us.”
World Youth Day is a sign
that God is with them!
The author of the Gospel of Luke didn’t even consider that the virgin Mary was a sign and/or if he did, he forgot to include it with his statement about the only sign given that generation would be the sign of Jonah.
What is the sign of the Virgin Mary?
The lie is that the Synoptic Jesus said that he would not give this generation a sign. Well, as a matter of fact, Jesus Christ did give us signs everywhere in everything he said and did.
That was a sign when Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. So I think in one respect a sign was fulfilled.
Just right off the cuff I would say that Mark is lying!
It bothers me that John Mark would say there was no sign given by Jesus Christ when there were many signs given. So how am I supposed to believe anything else John Mark says that Jesus said or did not say? We are talking about the gospel, not some paperback mystery. If he did not know of whether there was a sign given then why write what he wrote. I think it was to mislead.
Matthew and Luke say that the sign given was the sign of Jonah. But then they turn around and say that Jesus Christ was not in the earth for 3 days and 3 nights! So they contradict themselves and I believe they do that on purpose to deceive.
It has been established that John Mark/Mark was not an apostle. John Mark must have included the passage above that says that no sign was given as an outright bold faced lie because he had no way of knowing, except by what was written, and certainly not from first-hand knowledge, because he wasn’t there!
The gospels of Matthew and Luke say that the only sign given to that generation is the sign of Jonah as the
39But 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:40For 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.
and again in the gospel of Matthew:
3And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?4A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.
29And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.30For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.
There’s the proof that both these gospel writers are lying, because raising the dead, feeding 5000 bread out of a five loaves, giving sight to the blind, and all the many other miracles are signs!
Telling us His name and who He is was a sign!
Please read: I AM THAT I AM (The Sign)
John doesn’t say that the only sign given to that generation is the sign of Jonah!
He just tells us what happened as an eyewitness.
Right after Jesus Christ drove out the cattle and overthrew the money changers tables at the temple he is asked about what sign he was showing:
18Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?19Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
John doesn’t say that Jesus says it is the only sign, but it is a sign, nevertheless!
Mark says no sign, and Matthew and Luke say the sign of Jonah is the only sign and now Pope Benedict says World Youth day is a sign!
I would say raising Lazarus was a GREAT BIG SIGN, but the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke exclude that miracle!
So who is telling the truth?
Is the Sign of Mary helping Roman Catholicism today? If you bother to read any news about the Vatican, Rome, or the Pope you can see that he was
JUST fooling you and himself.
