Luke and Mark were not apostles of Christ. Mark and Luke are lying writings of Pharisees that contain some of what is in Matthew and John, with important omissions and lying additions. No where in Mark or Luke is stated the scathing statements made by Christ against Pharisees and scribes:
Matthew 23:15 Pharisees and their converts are children of Hell
Matthew 5:20 ... unless your righteousness exceeds that of the Pharisees and scribes, you will not enter Heaven [meaning Pharisees never go to Heaven]
Matthew 15:13 Pharisees are plants not planted by the Father
Matthew 15:14 Pharisees are blind leaders of the blind
Matthew 23:31 ... [Pharisees] are the children of those who killed God's prophets
John 8:37, 8:44 I know you [Pharisees] are of the seed of Abraham. You are of your father, Satan
Pharisees are the physical descendants of Abraham. Pharisee Paul is of the tribe of Benjamin (Philippians 3:5, Genesis 49:1, 49:27). But because Pharisees are evil, totally bent on doing evil, they are of Satan. Satan is their father, not God.
Some idiots claim Nicodemus the Pharisee believed in Christ. They are liars:
John 3:12 I have told you of earthly things and you do not believe me. How will you believe me if I tell you of heavenly things?
In fact, Christ mocked Nicodemus:
John 3:10 ... you are a master of Israel and do not know these things?
Remember, Christ said Pharisees are plants not planted by God, they never go to Heaven, including Pharisee Nicodemus, including Pharisee Paul:
Acts 23:6 I am a Pharisee and the son of a Pharisee
Acts 26:5 I live my life as a Pharisee
Philippians 3:5 ... I am a Pharisee ....
Christ, John the Baptist and the apostles of Christ all preached: repent because the kingdom of God is at hand (Matthew 3:2, 4:17, 10:7). Not everyone need repent, for not everyone is an evildoer:
Matthew 9:13 I came to call evildoers to repent, not the righteous
But if the evildoers fail to repent:
John 12:47 If any man hears my words and does not want to do them, I do not judge him [meaning no more 'repent or wrath', but rather in the next life those who refuse to give up evil deeds will go to Hell]
Revelation 22:11 Let him that is filthy be filthy still and let him that is unjust be unjust still. And let him that is righteous be righteous still and let him that is holy be holy still
The only time Christ said, you must be born again, is when speaking to Pharisee Nicodemus. Born again is what happens when an evildoer turns from doing evil, his spirit is born of God's spirit (born again). Those who are righteous, those who are holy are already of God's spirit, God is their Father so they need not be born again. As stated above, Christ said he does not ask that the righteous repent for they are already living in a manner that is pleasing to the Lord (Matthew 9:13).
Psalm 1:6 The Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish
Revelation 5:9 You have redeemed us by your blood from among every nation, tribe, language and kindred
It is a fact that not every tribe, nation, language and kindred knew of Christ or God, certainly not before Christ came to earth, and for many, not during or after Christ's time on earth. Revelation 5:9 proves that even those who did not know God, he knows them and the righteous are saved, even those who did not Christ or God. And as to those evildoers who would have repented had they gotten the message, God knows and he judges fairly (Matthew 11:23:24). Christ says the men of Sodom would have repented had they seen his miracles. Sodom would still be in existence had they seen his miracles because they would have repented and knowing same, Christ says it will be tolerable for the men of Sodom at judgment. God is all fair and merciful and he judges the heart, he knows the heart of everyone (Jeremiah 17:10).
In Luke 3:48 is the claim that Adam is the son of God. God says he has only one son, and that is Christ. Adam is not the son of God, he is a creation of God. In Luke, the genealogy of Christ is traced all the way back to Adam. But in Matthew, it is stated appropriately that the genealogy of Christ begins with Abraham:
Matthew 1:1-2 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Abraham begat Issac and Issac begat Jacob and Jacob begat Judah and his brethren
Exodus 3:6 ... I am the God of Abraham, the God of Issac and the God of Jacob ....
In saying Christ is the son of David, it means that the physical body of Christ is of the descendants of Abraham, Issac, Jacob and Judah, for Christ's physical body is descended from the tribe of Judah. It does not mean that Christ is the son of David, for he is the only begotten son of God:
Matthew 22:41-46 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Christ asked them: What do you think of Christ? Whose son is he? They said to him, the son of David. Christ said, how then does David in spirit call him Lord saying: The Lord said unto my Lord, sit thou at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool? If David called him Lord, how then is he his son? ....
