CS Lewis believed that Jesus made a mistake

lewis jesus mistake

The renowned Christian apologist C.S Lewis, while beloved by conservatives was far more theologically liberal than most realize. For example he considered Jesus to have uttered a false prophecy with regard to the famous apocalyptic prediction of Jesus that members of ‘generation shall not pass till all these things be done.’

Lewis wrote that: “It is clear from the New Testament that they all expected the Second Coming in their own lifetime. And worse still, they had a reason, and one which you will find very embarrassing. Their Master had told them so. He shared, and indeed created,their Delusion. He said in so many words, ‘this generation shall not pass till all these things be done.’ 

And he was wrong. He clearly knew no more about the end of the world than anyone else.” It is certainly the most embarrassing verse in the Bible. ” (1)
