The new testament is TRASH part 4
The writer of John tells his rendition of the gospel of the new testament messiah. In John 2:7-11, John gives us his account of the miracles the new testament messiah performed, and how people believed on him because of the many miracles he performed. However, after reading John’s testimony, you can’t help but to wonder if he was an actual eyewitness, if he received the account of the new testament messiah’s miracles through someone else, if he embellished his story, or fabricated his story altogether. John says:
—> John 2:7-9,11 “Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was… (v11) This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.”
☝☝☝ According to the writer of John, this was False Messiah’s first miracle. “This BEGINNING of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee…” Now, twelve verses later, in the same chapter, the writer of John tells us that False Messiah performed more miracles.
—> John 2:23 “Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.”
Okay. So, turning water into wine was only the first of a SERIES of miracles False Messiah performed. And the writer of John says “many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.” Awesome. So in the second chapter of John we see that False Messiah performed at least (for argument’s sake) three miracles. Miracle #1 was the turning water into wine and the miracle(s) following, were done “when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day.” <— So, at a bare minimum, we have at least three miracles being performed, all within the same week. However, the writer of John makes a conflicting claim in the fourth chapter of John:
—> John 4:45-54 “Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, HAVING SEEN ALL THE THINGS THAT HE DID AT JERUSALEM AT THE FEAST: FOR THEY ALSO WENT UNTO THE FEAST. So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum. When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death. Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die. Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth. Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house. THIS IS AGAIN THE SECOND MIRACLE THAT JESUS DID, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.”
Huh?? Wait a minute? Turning water into wine was False Messiah’s first miracle, right? And John 2:23 says he did even more miracles:
—> John 2:23 “Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracle(s) which he did.”
And John 4:45 agrees with John 2:23 and says that the Galileans welcomed False Messiah with open arms, because they were in Jerusalem and were witnesses of the miracle(s) he performed:
—> John 4:45 “Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.”
Yet, the writer of John claims that healing the nobleman’s son (in Galilee) was False Messiah’s second miracle? Healing the nobleman’s son should’ve been False Messiah’s fourth miracle, at least. Question: if healing the nobleman’s son (in Galilee) was False Messiah’s second miracle, what kind of miracles did the False Messiah perform (in Jerusalem) in John 2:23 ? Were they mini-miracles? Were they practice miracles? Were they “warm up” miracles? Were they sneak peek miracles? Or appetizer miracles? Or teaser miracles? Were they preview miracles? Were they “beta test” miracles? Were they “3 day free trial” miracles? If healing the nobleman’s son was False Messiah’s second miracle, do the miracles he performed (in Jerusalem) after turning water into wine not count???? Were they “display only” miracles? Were they “asian restaurant in the mall food court toothpick taste test” miracles? Were they gluten-free miracles? Were they “travel size” miracles? Or were they ‘smoke & mirror’ miracles?
Which is it? Was healing the nobleman’s son, indeed False Messiah’s second miracle?? And if so, why are we NOT COUNTING the miracle(s) he performed in John 2:23 which John 4:45 agrees that he did indeed perform, with eyewitnesses to verify the claim? Since when do some miracles count, while others don’t? Is the writer of John gaslighting us? Did the writer of John “catch us with guile?” (the classic Pauline ruse for when your followers discover your story isn’t adding up: (2 Cor 12:16.) Or should we just consider the miracles in John 2:23 “placebo” miracles?
☝☝☝Is your new testament “infallible” and “inerrant?” DO NOT scramble to Google looking for an answer to patch up the hole you’ve just discovered in your theology. What we strongly recommend is that you read the above ☝☝☝ 1st and 2nd miracle accounts in your own bible. Then take a deep breath and ask yourself, is the new testament the inspired word of YHWH?? Can I trust the testimony of the new testament? You should sincerely ask yourself, is the new testament accurate and without errors? Again we ask: how trustworthy is your new testament??
