Re: The verse in question is supposed to be the words of Jesus
AA wrote:
________________________________________
In both translations, the light is specifically attributed to the moon itself
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.

AA, this verse is something that Jesus himself is saying. By saying that Jesus doesn’t know how to explain it, or that Jesus is just saying what he sees without understanding it, you are saying that Jesus isn’t the omniscient God. If you want to convince people that Jesus was just some bloke in the wilderness, you are welcome to do so, but to first claim that the Bible predicts science and then to call Jesus ignorant when you are challenged really doesn’t support your claim.

Take care-

You are making the common assumption that modern people are smart, and ancient people were stupid. They were as smart as us, but didn't have the previous learning and toys we have. They certainly could have understood a giant sphere of glowing gas if God had said it. The ancient Hindus understood the idea of the earth being billions of years old, and ancient jews could certainly have understood that that stars are billions of miles away, and are like our sun, much larger than the earth. They could have understood that the bodies moved in orbits, or that there was nothing between them in space, etc....
