Did Jesus Lie to His Brothers in John Chapter 7?

Episode 448 Show Notes 

From the Show

Many Americans think that Jesus did actually sin. We’re really confused about the identity of Jesus, that’s sort of a theme on this program, how Satan wants us to be confused about this. Well, there are a lot of people who think that Jesus did sin. That couldn’t have happened because if he was a sinner or if he did sin, he couldn’t atone for our sins. Jesus is the spotless lamb of God.

Questions in this Episode

1. If Jesus is still embodied (albeit in a glorified body) does this mean that He is not omnipresent? 

2. What is the sign of the coming of the Christ in Matthew? 

3. In John 7, Jesus's brothers ask Jesus to go to Judea. In verses 6 through 9 Jesus explains that He "is not going up to this festival." Then in verse 10 Jesus does the opposite of what he told his brothers! After Jesus's brothers left for the festival, then Jesus went privately "in secret". Whatever Jesus's reason was to go, Jesus lied to his brothers! I just am so disturbed by this passage because it seems like what we call a " little white lie." 

4. Should we move to attend a specific pastor's church?
