The Incoherence of The Biblical Jesus' Teachings

By
Bassam Zawadi

 

 

When we look at the teachings of Jesus Christ in the Bible that we have today we see that his teachings are not clear at all. Especially, if according to Christians, Jesus claimed divinity and taught the concept of trinity then this definitely shows that Jesus' teachings are not clear because no where do you find any clear teachings of the Christian doctrine today uttered by Jesus' mouth in any of the four gospels. Even, the disciples had a hard time figuring out what Jesus was trying to say to them...

 

Mark 9:30-32

They went on from there and passed through Galilee. And he would not have any one know it; for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, ‘The Son of man will be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him; and when he is killed, after three days he will rise.’ But they did not understand the saying, and they were afraid to ask him."

Luke 18:31-34

"And taking the twelve, he said to them, ‘Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written of the Son of man by the prophets will be accomplished. For he will be delivered to the Gentiles, and will be mocked and shamefully treated and spit upon; they will scourge him and kill him, and on the third day he will rise.’ But they understood none of these things; this saying was hid from them, and they did not grasp what was said."

 

John 16:12-13

"I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come."

In John 16 we see that Jesus is saying that later on the Spirit of truth will come to guide the people unto all truth. Well, why couldn't Jesus do it himself? Why couldn't he make them understand clearly what was going on?

 

John 16:25

25"Though I have been speaking figuratively (paroimia), a time is coming when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father.

 

The word paroimia could mean...

1) a saying out of the usual course or deviating from the usual manner of speaking

a) a current or trite saying, a proverb

2) any dark saying which shadows forth some didactic truth

a) esp. a symbolic or figurative saying

b) speech or discourse in which a thing is illustrated by the use of similes and comparisons

c) an allegory

1) extended and elaborate metaphor

Why wasn't Jesus speaking in a normal and clear way all the time?

 

Well, here we find out why...

Mark 4:10-12

10When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. 11He 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 12so that," 'they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!'

 

So basically Jesus was teaching in parables so that people could be confused?

 

Conclusion

If Jesus was truly this Messiah whom people have been waiting in suspense for thousands of years, then why did he come to keep people in suspense even longer? Messengers of God are supposed to communicate clearly to the people what it is that God wants them to do. If they do not do so then how could we expect to have people understand the message that God is sending and to accept it?

Jesus mentioned Muhammad by the name in the Bible.

Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross.  I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken.    My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion.  I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
