The errors and lies of Luke, one by one.
Tue Sep 5, 2017 08:34

In Luke 1:1-4, Luke claims he learned from "eyewitnesses."

I'm going to start a list of statements here that prove he is lying.

1. "There was in the days of Herod, king of Judaea" βασιλέως τῆς Ἰουδαίας (Lk 1:5)

Herod the Great (39-3 BCE). His official title was not "king of Judaea," he was "king of the Jews." Judaea was only the southern part of Herod's kingdom. He actually ruled all the holy lands where Jews lived and this included Samaria, Idumea, Galilee, not just Judaea. Luke is actually confusing Herod the Great with Herod's son and successor Herod Archelaus who WAS ethnarch of just Judaea from 3 BCE to 6/7 CE.

We know Luke is confusing these two kings because in Luke 2:1-3 he writes that Yaoh-shai, who he calls "Iesous," was born in the days of a Roman census in the holy land. There was NEVER any Roman census in the holy land during the reign of Herod the Great. But one did take place at the end of Herod Archelaus's reign in 6/7 CE when Cyrenius was governor of Syria. Luke has a major screw up here and all New Testament scholars know about it. This is not information he obtained from "eyewitnesses," this is nonsense he made up himself by doing his own research, and not consulting the right people. He did not consult eyewitnesses at all.
