ACCURATE BIBLE KNOWLEDGE!
“THE TRANSFIGURATION - WAS IT AFTER SIX DAYS OR EIGHT DAYS?”
Both the accounts of Matthew and Mark have after six days while Luke has about eight days? Is there a contradiction?
And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.
And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.
As both Matthew and Mark say ‘after six days’, the question is how much after six days? The Matthew and Mark accounts do not say how much and it could be seven days or maybe eight days.
Mathew’s and Mark’s ‘after six days’ may have been the six full days in between the part days on either side of them.
Now Day 1 and Day 8 may have only been ‘part-days’ in Luke’s account and Luke would be including the part days on either side of the six full days of Matthew and Mark, thereby making up the ‘about eight days’.
If before a judge in the civil courts, four witnesses appear with exactly the same story, and all agreeing with each other down to the last detail, then the judge will throw the case out of court. Why? He knows that the witnesses are lying and have got together and manufactured their evidence, to win their case.
Now it is said that when buying an Oriental rug, any stitching irregularity is proof of an honest hand making the rug. It is genuine. Otherwise it has been perfectly factory made without blemish and therefore not authentic or genuine!
We use this analogy to show that the King James Bible is authentic and genuine, with its APPARENT inconsistencies and contradictions. But yes, there are NONE!
“The reconciliation of apparent contradictions is the positive confirmation
that the truth is being told!”
God’s apparent contradictions are the stumbling block for any lazy King James Bible corrector.
God’s apparent contradictions embarrass the ‘primary school apprentices’ that are of the concision, that rip and tear at the truth of the King James Bible (Philippians 3:2)
God’s apparent contradictions reveal the ‘clouds without water’ of all King James Bible critics (Jude 1:12)
God’s apparent contradictions reveal those that JUST PREFER, but will not believe, the inerrancy and perfection of the King James Bible.
God’s apparent contradictions expose those with Greek-itis. Definition? “Ah! The deeper meaning to be found only in the ‘greek’.
God’s apparent contradictions entice the destructive King James Bible correcting mice out of their little tiny holes in the wall.
“I don’t mind how much or how little a student knows,
it’s their attitude to learning the truth that counts!
Will they have the truth, nothing but the truth, all of the truth, at any cost!”
Oh yes, they want three out of the four, but at any cost?
