The Bible is Wrong About Jesus Being God

We have seen that the Old Testament is filled with errors; i.e The Bible Is So Wrong About So Much, Why Do You Believe Any Of It“. Jesus quotes extensively from the Old Testament and believes it to be true.

Since Jesus is God and God is omniscient how is it possible that Jesus quotes from the Old Testament, knowing that it is wrong? How can the omniscient God/Jesus/Holy Spirit use passages from the Old Testament when it knows that they are wrong? We conclude that Jesus is not God and God is not omniscient.

Summary

  1. Historical Reliability
    1. Jesus affirmed the historical existence of Jonah (Matt. 12:40), Noah (Matt. 24:37-38), Sodom and Gomorrah (Mark 6:11)  and Adam and Eve (Matt. 19:4-6).
  2. Scientific Reliability
    1. Jesus affirmed that God created the world (Mk. 13:19; cf. Matt. 19:4).
  3. Old Testament Canonicity1
    1. Jesus made reference to the Law and Prophets as a unit, “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill,” (Matt. 5:17).
    2. Jesus explained the Scriptures, “Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures,” ( Luke 24:27).
    3. Jesus referred to the entire Canon by mentioning all the prophets from Abel (from Genesis, the first book and first martyr) to Zechariah (Chronicles, the last book, and the last martyr) (Matt. 23:35).2
    4. Jesus even made reference to the wrong set of 10 Commandments. See The Bible is Wrong About the 10 Commandments.
      1. Exodus 20:13/Deut 5:17 – You shall not commit murder (referenced twice)
      2. Exodus 20:14/Deut 5:18 – You shall not commit adultery (referenced twice)
      3. Exodus 20:12/Deut 5:16 – Honor your father and mother (referenced twice)
      4. Exodus 20:15/Deut 5:19 – You shall not steal (referenced once)
      5. Exodus 20:16/Deut 5:20 – You shall not give false testimony (referenced once)
  4. Source of Authority
    1. When confronted by Satan, Jesus appealed to the Old Testament as a source of authority by stating, “It is written,” (Matt. 4:4, 7, 10).
  5. Imperishability
    1. “For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished,” (Matt. 5:18).
  6. Unbreakability
    1. “The Scripture cannot be broken,” (NASB, Jn. 10:35).
  7. Source of Doctrinal Authority
    1. Jesus appealed to Scripture when correcting false doctrine stating, “You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures nor the power of God,” (Matt. 22:29).
