Understanding the Gospel of Luke

Many people have very strong opinions about what they believe the Bible teaches. And since there are so many different churches with different beliefs and different practices, it is clear that they cannot possibly all be right. In every disagreement about what the Bible means at least one party has to have it wrong; and at times all the parties involved may have it wrong. That is because nobody has perfect understanding of everything that relates to biblical statements and teachings.

One major source of such conflicts in understanding, even amongst the various churches of God, is THE VAST NUMBER OF MISTRANSLATIONS found in virtually every translation of the Bible that is available to us, including the KJV...

MARK 14:30

Luke 22:34 reads: "And he said, I tell thee, Peter, THE COCK SHALL
NOT CROW THIS DAY, BEFORE that thou shalt THRICE deny that thou
knowest me."

79

Matthew 26:34 reads: "Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That
this night, BEFORE THE COCK CROW, thou shalt deny me THRICE."

And Mark 14:30 reads: "And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee,
That this day, [even] in this night, BEFORE THE COCK CROW TWICE,
thou shalt deny me THRICE."

These words were spoken to Peter, and Peter no doubt remembered them
very vividly. Jesus Christ said "before the cock crow TWICE", and that is
how Peter dictated this episode to Mark. But both, Matthew and Luke, have
left out this reference to "twice".

Now Mark 14:68 reads: "But he denied, saying, I know not, neither
understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch; AND THE
COCK CREW."

The point is that when the "cock crew" here in Mark 14:68 Peter had thus
far only denied Jesus Christ once! It was only after he had denied Jesus
Christ two more times that THEN the cock crew "the second time" (Mark
14:72).

So, strictly speaking, the statements in Luke 22:34 and in Matthew 26:34,
that Peter would deny Jesus Christ THRICE before the rooster would crow,
are not correct! When the rooster crowed for the first time Peter had thus
far only denied Jesus Christ ONCE!

If, in the absence of Mark 14:30, anyone had correctly reported when "the
cock crew" for the first time, it would have implied that Jesus Christ's
prediction was not really correct! A correct record of the rooster's crowing
that night required a correct record of Jesus Christ's complete prediction
regarding Peter's conduct that night. And that complete quotation is only
recorded in Mark's account.

The omission of the word "twice" in both, Matthew's account and also in
Luke's account, is certainly not due to any divine inspiration.
