Oh dear, you are slipping there, Pahu. All four gospels recount Jesus going to pray after the last supper. In Mark (and Matthew) he is in Gethsemane (precise location unknown, beyond being somewhere at the foot of the Mount of Olives); it is Luke that puts him on the Mount of Olives. John says this conversation took place in a garden in or near the Kidron Valley.Pahu wrote: In John 16:32,33 Christ is celebrating the Last Supper. In Mark 14:35,36 He is on the Mount of Olives. Two different times and places.
So, was he split into three?
That is quite simply not true. Although Bethphage is now contiguous with Jerusalem, 2000 years ago,Jerusalem, Bethphage and Nethany would have been distinct and separate entities.Bethphage began where Bethany ended, and reached to the city itself.
That is not evidence, it is opinion. The so-called accurate prophecies can just as easily be accounted for by the Jewish tradition of Midrash. For example, they could have written the NT stories (NB: the gospels were written long after the time when the events they depicted were meant to have occurred) so that they appeared to fulfill prophecies in the OT stories. The Washington Codex alone is sufficient evidence that "embellishing" earlier gospels was an acceptable deed.I have given evidence God is the author of the Bible, most notably in the fact that the Bible is filled with hundreds of accurately fulfilled prophecies:
How do you know that?It is true God inspired humans to write the Bible and He insured it was preserved accurately.
How do you know that there are not other errors that remain uncorrected?The blunder by Barker and Lucas was corrected.
Indeed, but there are also translations that say different things. "... good will toward men" does not mean the same as either "...to men of good will" or "....to men with whom God is pleased"Different translations say the same thing differently.
Again, that is simply not true. The "who has not known a man" qualification was sometimes a cultural assumption, but was not a meaning.Almah means a young woman who has not known a man, or virgin.
