You go to the festival.I'm not going to this festival, because my time has not yet come.(John 7:8)
An interesting passages exposes a serious problem, Jesus of the bible lying to his disciples, notice form the above passage he was asked to go to the (Jewish festival) however Jesus refused the invitation and said he is not going to the festival rather you guys go I'll stay here? Let's read the next couple of verses to find out if he stuck to his words?
After saying these things, Jesus remained in Galilee.But after his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not publicly but in private.
ITS CRYSTAL CLEAR JESUS OF THE BIBLE LIED TO HIS DISCIPLES!! This is not something new from the bible it's been a serious problem since the mid 2nd century
Porphyry (234-305) a Greek philosopher made an attack against Christianity, accusing Jesus Christ of being inconsistent, based on John 7:8 where Jesus declared : “I am not going up to this feast…” (Revised Standard Version.), yet two verses later we read: “…But after his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not publicly but in private.” Without doubt there must have been manuscript(s) in circulation at that time with this rendering; otherwise his accusation could just have been set aside as based on a corrupted copy of the gospel. Looking at the evidence of surviving documents up to 500 A.D. this version is supported by two Greek manuscripts, and no less than 10 different translations, spread over the entire known world of that time, viz. 4 old Latin, 1 Vulgate, 2 Syrian, 1 Coptic (Egyptian), 1 Armenian and 1 Georgian. Quite convincing! But there is also another version stating that Jesus said: “…I am not yet going up to this Feast.” (MKJV, NIV). This version is supported the two oldest documents to our avail, one written before Porphyry’s time, the other during his lifetime as well as a Coptic (Egyptian) translation also made in the same period. Yet up to 500 A.D. we have only 3 more Greek manuscripts, a Syrian and a Gothic translation in support of this rendering. Only 8 documents up to 500 A.D. compared with the 12
