Did Jesus Christ Contradict Himself?

I posted a topic sometime in may titled seeming contradiction in the Bible in which I raised the question was Jesus Christ contradicting himself?

what prompted my asking the question was that Jesus Christ once said of all men born of a woman there is none as great as John the Baptist and yet the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than him. Then Jesus Christ also told another parable about Lazarus and a certain rich man in which Lazarus was described as being in the bossom of Abraham in heaven. Having said this John the baptist is therefore greater than Abraham who was born of a woman but Abraham who let's assume is the least in the kingdom of heaven is also greater than John the Baptist.

This was my observation. There were only two replies to that post and the one that attempted to answer the question gave a totally out of the point answer when he said Abraham is not a member of the kingdom of heaven since Kingdom means Government and the government in heaven comprises God the father, God the Son and God the Holy spirit.

A kingdom is a territory controlled or ruled by a king whereas a government is an institution that preserves the wellbeing of people within a defined territory. Therefore Abraham is a member of the Kingdom of heaven which implies one of the following:

1. Jesus Christ was Contradicting himself

2. He was trying to puzzle his disciples or

3. There is some unexplained answer to the question

@Ursolution:

The ispiration is more like it came from the ungodly spirit, since paul was 180 degrees from what Jesus said. How about the Trinity (meaning Three (3)) for example. Tell me where Jesus listed that he is one of a three entity that makes up One God? Tell me where he says that He is God Almighty? Tell me where he says that he is a partner to God, or equal without any diminishing in authority with God?

Then whats the name of this phantom holy spirit? You gave son, Jesus as a name, the n father as Jehovah or yahweh. Whats holy spirit personal name, if you are honest to yourself? Tell the holy spirit to interprete Mark 12 Verse 29, and, there are three that witness in heaven verse? I wanna read the interpretation from the holy spirit, as he gives it to you! I bet that he will twist mark 12 verse 29 and simple read verbatim the three that witness in heaven verse. The inconsistences of your holy spirit is abhorrence.

I ask you first: lol. Are you a born, again? Then interprete the total Bible or just read it straight as it is written. Otherwise you are playing footsie with information, just to please your own idea, regardless of the truth or falacy.

I did not say God contradicted himself. My QUESTION is DID JESUS CHRIST CONTRADICT HIMSELF? Answer with a simple yes or no but of course provide a very sound argument to buttress your point(s).

People sha! When will they learn to answer simple questions or make meaningful comments? Unbelievable!!

Dear friend,

Jesus did not at all contradict himself in any of His statements in the scriptures. If you really want to know the meaning of His words don't read the scriptures like you are reading a newspaper or other books. God inspired apostle paul in one of his letters to the corinthians and he said ''The letter kills but it is the spirit that gives life". The Holy spirit is the one that intepretes the word of God as the bible says He searches the deep things of God and reveals them to us. Another thing about the word of God is that it may be instructing you on things concerning your own life.The scriptures is useful for correction, reproof and instruction in righteousness (2Tim3:16). In a nutshell whenever you read any thing in the word of God, look at the situations that surrounds it, then look into your own life. If you can't still connote a meaning to it, then get back to the owner of the scripture. By the way are you born again?

my dear brother, the Bible is not a story book or a text book, you can not understand the Bible without the Grace of God. B4 u read d Bible, believe it, pray 2 God 2 open ur eyes. Remember the Lord, Jesus Christ said, Father, i thank you for hiding these things from the wise and revealing them to mere children. these tells u that it is not reading the Bible that makes you understand it but your mindset. your mind must be set as that of a child who believes everything the parent says. besides coming back to the part of the bible that you read,

IS ABRAHAM A MAN? of course not. think.
