For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Will Jesus’s second coming be visible to all?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Yes.

Every eye will seem him coming in the clouds in all his glory

And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory.” (Matthew 24:30)

Then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.” (Mark 13:26)

Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” (Luke 21:27)

Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.” (Revelation 1:7)

No.

Nonbelievers will ever see him again.

After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also.” (John 14:19)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: When did the transfiguration occur?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Six days after Jesus foretold his death.

““Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” The Transfiguration 17 Six days later Jesus *took with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and *led them up on a high mountain by themselves. 2 And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light.“Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” 17 Six days later Jesus *took with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and *led them up on a high mountain by themselves. 2 And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light.” (Matthew 16:28-17:2)

And Jesus was saying to them, “Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.” 2 Six days later, Jesus *took with Him Peter and [a]James and John, and *brought them up on a high mountain by themselves. And He was transfigured before them;” (Mark 9:1-2)

Eight days after Jesus foretold his death.

But I say to you truthfully, there are some of those standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God.” 28 Some eight days after these sayings, He took along Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray.” (Luke 9:27-28)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Does the gospel of Luke contain everything that Jesus did?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

Yes.

The first account I composed, Theophilus, about all that Jesus began to do and teach, 2 until the day when He was taken up to heaven, after He had by the Holy Spirit given orders to the apostles whom He had chosen.” (Acts 1:1-2)

No.

And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they *were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself *would not contain the books that *would be written.” (John 21:25)
