Re: The verse in question
The people who were seeing the visions did not know how to explain it. The science of that time said that the moon gave its own light. He saw in his vision that the Sun got dark, and AFTER that, the moon not longer was bright. According to the science of that time, the moon stopped giving its light.

Yes and the bible is wrong. the fact that they didn't understand that the moon doesn't produce light doesn't excuse the fact that the bible is wrong about it

The people who were seeing the visions did not know how to explain it.

you just contradicted yourself, you said they didn't know how to explain it, but according to their science the moon produced light, they thought it gave off light.
thus for their time they did have an explaination but it was wrong

My point? Keep in mind that 2,000 years ago, people thought that the Sun was 1 meter in diameter. How can the people be able to tell such scientific facts and have them be proven right later after much debate? [The book of Matthew was written at about 50 AD].

the reason for the conflict is because the bible is wrong about the physical world,, but people try to fit the facts so they work with the bible.
a fact is a fact, trying to twist the wording of the bible so history and physics works with it is trying to fabricate a lie, none of the bible can be shown to match science in all but the simplest things

by the way matthew has been found to been written at least as early as 70 ad to as late as 110 ad, sorry

Edited by ReverendDG, : No reason given.
