Who is “lying”, Matthew or Luke? Does anyone know? A comment left recently at my blog.

من says:

– After the expulsion of Jesus from territory of the Gerasenes he returned to Capernaum and found a person named (Matthew)& sat in his house, and while Jesus respond to the words of John’s disciples came upon a man named (Jairus) and asked him to revive his daughter after her death (Matthew 18: 9) .. and this is what came in the Gospel Matthew .
– After the expulsion of Jesus from territory of the Gerasenes he returned to Capernaum and during the reception of the people of the city a man whose name came (Jairus) asked Jesus to save his daughter because it is on the edge of death (Luke 41: 8) [Note that the Gospel {Luke 5 (27-39)} stated that Jesus sat in the house (Matthew) before being expelled from territory of the Gerasenes] .. and this is what came in the Gospel of Luke.
.
So (Matthew ) says that Jesus enter Matthew House after being expelled from territory of the Gerasenes, and (Luke) says that Jesus enter Matthew House before being expelled from territory of the Gerasenes .who is lying, Matthew or Luke? [This is to prove to you that they faked stories and tales.

    Do both accounts of the casting out of the demons necessarily refer to the same event? My humble opinion is that they do not. There are important differences that weigh against them both referring to the same event in time.

    The post is too confused to really get a response. It looks like the poster may be assuming a chronological aspect that is simply not in all the gospels, except when you read something like “and then” in the AV text.

    It is true that there are geographical blunders in the ultra-minority text. e,g, There are no Gerasenes in the pure Bible. Speaking of Gerasa was simply a blunder put in some minority mss by Alexandrian scribes that did poor scribal work. As Gerasa was 35 miles away from the Sea of Galilee, leading to the swine marathon in the modern corrupt versions that should never be used for Bible apologetics. Never.

    If the poster would make his objection coherent, and be sure to use the pure and accurate AV (KJB) not the corrupt modern versions, I would be happy to revisit the text.

    Thanks Steve.

    Swine marathon, lol.

    I’m convinced that these are two separate visits to these shores by Jesus and his disciples. The last visit with all twelve. The first without Matthew who was called after the first journey.

    And I agree about two separate deliverance events. There are about a ten differences between the account of Mark and Luke, and the account of Matthew. The Mark and Luke account is down south near Gadara (a port region that extended from the lake to what is today the Gadara hot springs, and the area was part of the Decapolis). The Matthew account took place in Gergesenes, which is right across from Tiberias (just above Hippo on the map, sometimes written as Kursi.)

    I’m not sure if that is the answer to the post, because the comment was too confused to work with.
