10 Lies You’ve Been Told About Jesus

[Music]

it’s common to question the authenticity

of things we learn in history is it

possible that everything we know today

about something is exactly what happened

in the past it’s questionable right so

today let’s dive into historical

accuracy and debunk common

misconceptions surrounding one of the

most influential figures in history

Jesus get ready to challenge your

understanding as we uncover the truth

behind big lies about Jesus in the

Bible let’s Dive In Jesus also known as

Jesus Christ Jesus of Nazareth and by

many other titles lived in the first

century fulfilling prophecies from the

Old Testament historical accounts of

Jesus life are found in the gospels

especially in the New Testament he

engaged in debates with his

contemporaries healed taught in Parables

and gathered followers including main

disciples Jesus later faced arrest and

trial culminating in his crucifixion by

order of Pontius Pilate the Roman

prefect of Judea there are some

misconceptions associated with Jesus

that continue to be passed down from

generation to

generation the first one is that Jesus

was born on December

th so why do we celebrate Christmas in

December we can thank emperor

Constantine of the th Century for that

as a healthier alternative Christians

used to celebrate festivities at the

same times as Pagan

festivals in this case Christmas

coincided with the winter

solstice although Christmas has been

celebrated on December th for almost

, years Jesus was not born in

December not even in Winter emperor

Constantine established Christmas on the

winter solstice which is December th

ad however it’s more likely that Jesus

was born in Spring as suggested by the

mention in Luke Chapter of shepherds

tending to their flocks during spring

when sheep were giving birth to Lambs

but we can’t be sure exactly when jesus’

birth occurred as Shepherds also

remained in the fields all year round

the first mention of Jesus birth on

December th probably dates back to the

r century when hippus of Rome wrote

about our Lord’s first coming in the

flesh saying he was born in Bethlehem on

December th a

Wednesday regardless of when Jesus was

conceived belied what’s important is

that he was born he came into the world

to atone for our sins was raised to

eternal life and is still alive today

this is what we should celebrate as the

Old Testament says in passages like

Zechariah shout and be glad

Daughter of Zion for I am coming and I

will live among you declares the Lord

furthermore the angel who announced the

birth to the Shepherds brought good news

of great joy that will be for all the

people Luke

in fact this is a reason to Rejoice

every day not just once a year the

second misconception is that Jesus wrote

the New Testament the claim that Jesus

wrote the New Testament is not supported

by any historical

evidence the New Testament consisting of

books contains teachings attributed

to Jesus but there’s nothing to prove

that he personally contributed to its

writing the traditional belief is that

the Apostle Paul who converted to

Christianity after encountering Jesus in

a vision wrote of these books apart

from that the four gospels in the New

Testament Matthew Mark Luke and John are

considered eyewitness accounts of Jesus

life teachings birth death and

Resurrection meaning Jesus himself did

not write any part of these texts the

gospels and the remaining books were

passed down through oral tradition

before being put into writing so while

it’s true that the gospels provide

valuable lessons from Jesus actions and

words we cannot directly attribute

authorship to him because it clearly

contradicts historical facts Jesus never

wrote a book not even the

gospels besides his life story more than

a third of the pages in the gospels are

dedicated to the death of Jesus many Old

Testament prophecies were about Christ

and in the Book of Revelation there’s a

revelation about Jesus Christ however it

was written by John of Patmos all also

known as John the Revelator John the

Divine and John the

Theologian however this doesn’t imply

that he couldn’t read or write Jesus

possessed the ability to read and write

as demonstrated in the New Testament in

a synagogue in Nazareth he unrolled The

Scroll of the prophet Isaiah and read a

portion of it in the story of the woman

caught in adultery Jesus is seen writing

on the ground the only thing we can know

for certain is that Jesus could have

written letters or books if he had

wanted to although he left nothing in

writing for us whether a systematic

arrangement of his teachings or his

inner thoughts we simply don’t know the

third misconception is that Jesus had

only disciples at the beginning of

his

ministry Jesus chose Apostles in the

accounts of Matthew and Mark Jesus

extended a brief invitation to a group

of fishermen who accepted to accompany

him without hesitation leaving their

Nets and boats behind in addition to the

apostles a larger assembly of

individuals is recognized as disciples

in the sermon on the plane according to

Luke

to Jesus sent approximately or

followers in pairs to prepare towns for

his imminent visit Luke

– after this the Lord appointed

others and sent them two by two ahead of

him to every town and place where he was

about to go he told them the Harvest is

plentiful but the workers are few ask

the lord of the Harvest therefore to

send out workers into his Harvest field

go I am sending you out like Lambs Among

Wolves do not take a purse or bag or

sandals and do not greet anyone on the

road as for the instructions they

consisted of accepting Hospitality

Healing The Sick and spreading the

message about the imminent arrival of

the kingdom of God even if you examine

the portrayal in the gospel of Mark the

disciples show a remarkable lack of

understanding regarding Jesus miracles

his Parables and the concept of

Resurrection so Jesus had many more

disciples than most people believe the

fourth misconception is that Jesus

didn’t even touch wine Christ’s first

miracle of turning water into wine at

the wedding in Kana almost certainly

involved fermented drink traditional

Jewish weddings typically included

serving fermented wine if Jesus Jesus

had offered only grape juice at the

wedding the banquet host would have been

upset instead he remarked that the wine

was an improvement over what had been

provided earlier affirming that it was

good wine the Greek word for get drunk

in John is methyl which means to be

drunk or

intoxicated in acts – when Peter

defends the apostles against accusations

of drunkenness the same term is used

according to the testimony of the

banquet host the wine Christ made had

the ability to intoxicate all who drank

it of course the fact that Jesus turned

water into wine doesn’t prove that he

drank the wine at the wedding but it

would have been normal for him to do so

in Luke

– Jesus said for John the Baptist

came neither eating bread nor drinking

wine and you say he has a demon the son

of man has come eating and drinking and

you say look a glutton and a drunker a

friend of tax collectors and

sinners the fifth misconception is that

Jesus was an only child on top of that

many people believe Jesus was an only

child which is a big mistake and can be

debunked by a detailed examination of

biblical

texts in Matthew

– the scriptures provide explicit

information about Jesus family is this

not the carpenter son is not his mother

called Mary and are not not his brothers

James Joseph Simon and Judas are not all

his sisters with us where then did this

man get all these things according to

these verses Jesus had brothers and

their names are mentioned as James

Joseph Simon and Judas the text also

identifies his mother as Mary which is

clear evidence that he had brothers and

challenges the prevailing idea that

Jesus was an only child furthermore his

relatives also wrote parts of the Bible

although these two brothers did two

books of the New Testament never

capitalized on their relationship with

Jesus they never said listen to me I’m

Jesus brother Jude says I am the brother

of James so his brothers were persuaded

by the resurrection that Jesus who had

lived with them in the house of the

Nazareth Carpenter was none other than

the Son of God James is mentioned as a

member of the small prayer group

awaiting the coming of the spirit at

Pentecost so Jesus cousins followed him

and his immediate family believed in him

that tells you something about Jesus

character

quality in fact at least five and

probably seven of the were relatives

of

Jesus however his brothers remained

skeptical until after the resurrection

when James and Jude not only became

Believers but wrote two of the books of

the New Testament it must not have been

easy being in the

family however even Christianity is not

about what is easy so Jesus found

several Apostles within his wider Family

Circle but his immediate family didn’t

know what to think of him when you’ve

lived with someone for years and

suddenly they start saying they’re the

Messiah it can’t be easy at the

beginning of his public Ministry he

seems to detach from Mary most assumed

Joseph had died by then he no longer

called her mother but woman woman what

does this have to do with you was his

first recorded comment to Mary at the

wedding in cona the sixth misconception

is that Jesus hated Judas many also ask

while Jesus prays Judas arrives with a

great crowd armed with swords and clubs

sent by the chief priests and Elders

Judas had given them a signal saying the

man I kiss is the man arrest him he

approaches Jesus greets him as Rabbi and

kisses him Jesus responds friend do what

what you came to do then the men step

forward seized Jesus and arrest him

although Jesus knows that Judas is

betraying him he still calls him friend

this shows that Jesus responds calmly

not with anger or hatred he’s

acknowledging What Judas is there to do

but doing it in a way that still shows

care for Judas by saying do what you

came to do Jesus shows that he knows

exactly what’s happening and why he

understands that this betrayal is part

of the events that will lead to his

crucifixion which is a crucial part of

his mission Jesus is ready to face

what’s coming though it will be very

difficult and painful for

Judas this moment is the final step in

his

betrayal he has already accepted to

betray Jesus Jesus words are like a

confirmation that he knows what Judas is

doing and that there’s no turning back

according to the biblical narrative

there’s no indication that Jesus hated

Judas for betraying him in fact the way

Jesus addresses Judas in Matthew

calling him friend suggests a

response not of hatred but of sadness

and perhaps a deep understanding of

human

weakness the consistent message of Jesus

throughout his teachings is one of Love

forgiveness and compassion even towards

those who wrong us for example in The

Sermon on the Mount Jesus teaches us to

love our enemies and pray for those who

persecute us Matthew

this perspective is Central in his

teachings and is reflected in his

interaction with Judas during the

Betrayal Jesus response to Judas can be

seen as embodying the same principles he

taught despite the Betrayal Jesus

addresses Judas in a way that

acknowledges the gravity of the moment

but without malice it’s a response that

conveys the pain of betrayal but without

the bitterness of hatred this aligns

with the overall message of forgiveness

and redemp ion that is Central to our

faith in Christ additionally Jesus

understanding of his mission and the

events that were to unfold including his

betrayal arrest and crucifixion suggest

that he saw Judas actions within the

broader context of a divine plan in this

light his response to Judas could be

seen as part of his acceptance of the

path he had to tread a path that would

lead to the Fulfillment of his mission

of salvation for

Humanity the warning Jesus gave reveals

that he had a deep affection for Judas

the opportunity to reverse his evil plan

was brief and was his last chance to do

so the fact that Jesus loved both Mary

and Judas so much is a striking fact

that should not be

forgotten the fact that he loved Mary

and hated Judas is not the case even

though we practically want to believe

that however if we don’t recognize his

love for Judas which was undoubtedly a

love that was rejected then we missed

the whole story regarding number eight

Jesus was kind but not always nice Jesus

confronted several people the general

perception of Jesus in the minds of some

people is that he would only use kind

words and wouldn’t upset anyone and

while this is true to an extent there

were occasions when he resorted to

harsher language for example in Matthew

he says you

snakes you brood of

vipers how will you escape being

condemned to hell another example is

John where he says you belong to

your father the devil and you want to

carry out your father’s

desires he was a murderer from the

beginning not holding to the truth for

there is no truth in him when he lies he

speaks his native language for he is a

liar and the father of Lies what annoys

a person can reveal a lot about them and

shows their main priorities and deepest

insecurities long lines at slow

checkouts and inefficient government

processes could be your triggers that

make you wonder what angered Jesus in

John

– we have the first testimony of the

Lord to the city of Jerusalem beginning

at this moment at

Passover Jesus began and ended his

public Ministry by cleansing the temple

Jesus acted quickly and with Fury the

word all implies that he drove out not

only the men but also the

animals however his physical activity

was not cruel despite his strength the

moderation of his actions can be seen in

the lack of wild rioting otherwise the

considerable Garrison of Roman troops

stationed at the Antonia Fortress which

dominated the temple in Jerusalem at

that time due to the crowds of Passover

would have reacted quickly when Jesus

referred to the scriptures he showed his

hand my house will be called a House of

Prayer but you are making it a den of

robbers this single statement contains

two quotes from the old Testament Isaiah

and Jeremiah

when you investigate the context of

each paragraph you will notice that they

are all threats to the establishment of

the temple like Isaiah

I will bring them to my Holy

Mountain and give them joy in my house

of prayer their burnt offerings and

sacrifices will be accepted on my Altar

for my house will be called a house of

prayer for all nations the money

changers the president presence of the

money changers satisfied a legal

requirement that all donations be made

in special coins the money changers

exchanged currencies and made profits

but there are no indications of improper

Behavior Jesus annoyance doesn’t come

from alleged greed or widespread

corruption but from the fact that these

transactions are taking place at all get

these out of here how dare you turn my

father’s house into a market is a

prophetic command to restore the temple

to its proper function of worship prayer

instruction and holy

sacrifice the original in Hebrew in John

contains a subtle play on words that is

overlooked in English take these out of

here stop making my father’s house a

Marketplace Jesus is attacking the

financial mechanism of the festival

system John

his disciples remembered that it is

written Zeal for your house will consume

me when his disciples see this shocking

sight psalm vers comes to mind

Zeal for your house will consume me

Jesus actions are motivated by his

relationship with the father as the

Messiah and Son of God Jesus feels

compelled to defend and promote God’s

interests

worldwide when he Witnesses human

desecration in God’s house he is

overwhelmed by a strong impulse to act

Temple purification or challenge is a

common Old Testament idea where the

total renewal of Israel on the day of

the Lord is linked to the renewal of the

Temple

everyone saw that Jesus Took Justice and

righteousness seriously when he drove

the money changers out of the temple he

could lead people because he didn’t need

them his courage arose from his

confidence in his father allowing him to

perform unpleasant duties and leave an

indelible Mark although Jesus actions

sometimes seemed harsh such as when he

drove out the money changers and rebuked

the Jews his brief Ministry also

presents us with some critical images of

a Leader’s

relationships we can observe the hard

and sensitive sides of Christ’s

leadership by looking at the complete

record regarding number nine Jesus

resurrection was not physical some

believe that Jesus was resurrected in a

spiritual body rather than a physical

one however Jesus physical body was

raised from the dead he tells the

disciples why are you troubled and why

do doubts rise in your minds look at my

hands and my feet it is I myself

touch me and see a ghost does not have

Flesh and Bones as you see I have to

help make his point Jesus ate in their

presence do you have anything here to

eat he asked them they gave him a piece

of broiled fish and he took it and ate

it in their presence and finally Jesus

was a carpenter although most people

believed he was a carpenter by

profession there is evidence to the

contrary in the

gospels they tell us about jesus’

childhood home in the town of Nazareth

in Galilee where he lived with his

family in Mark Jesus is called a

tekon traditionally understood as a

carpenter but it could actually also

mean a maker of objects in various

materials including

Builders moreover this word can also be

translated as Craftsman which means he

could also work with

Pottery so the true nature of his

profession could be a carpenter but

there is an equally likely possibility

that it meant something else and the

meaning got Lost in

Translation interestingly the name Jesus

is not mentioned in the Bible it is

actually a derivative of the Greek

translation of his true Hebrew name

yahushua or Yeshua it is possible that

his greek-speaking Apostles found it

difficult to pronounce his Hebrew name

so it became Jesus when translated into

English as we conclude our exploration

of the truths about Jesus in the Bible

we hope that this journey has shed light

on some commonly misunderstood aspect
