In both cases, Jesus is portrayed as displaying irrational anger. We can interpret this in two ways: either these events really happened and should therefore be reported, or they did not happen, and we then look for the motives that the authors of Matthew and Luke may have had.

In Luke 19:27, Jesus is reported as telling them to bring his enemies and slay them before him. The author of Luke had no compunction about recommending force to achieve the aims of his Church. At Luke 14:23, he says that Jesus told the servant to "compel them to come in." And in Acts, by the same author, he writes of Peter killing Ananias and his wife in cold blood, because they had sold a possession but had not given all the proceeds to the Church, as he had expected. Also in Acts, he writes of Paul blinding Bar-Jesus for attempting to dissuade the Deputy from accepting Christianity. Luke 19:27 is entirely consistent with this attitude.

Why does Bible present Jesus so badly in Matthew 16 23 and Luke 19 27?

The notion that Jesus is presented 'so badly' in those verses is entirely an opinion. Taken at face value, without paying heed to the context or giving serious consideration to the subliminal meanings, those verses may certainly sound harsh. But here is my interpretation.Matthew 16:23 "But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's."In Matthew 16:21-22, Jesus tells the disciples that He will be murdered in Jerusalem and Peter exclaims, "God forbid it, Lord! This shall never happen to you." Matthew 16:23 is Jesus' response to Peter.Earlier in Matthew 16, Jesus and Peter had discussed Jesus' status as the Christ, the messiah foretold of in the Old Testament Books of Prophecy. Peter acknowledges Jesus is the Christ (Matthew 16:16), which is when Jesus utters the famous line about Peter being the rock upon which He will build his church (Matthew 16:18). Having acknowledged that Jesus is the Christ, Peter surely knew that Jesus would ultimately have to make a sacrifice as the prophecies foretold (Isaiah 53, Zechariah 12).Therefore for Peter to swear that such a thing would never happen to Jesus could only have been done, as Jesus said, by one who can be likened to Satan: to not want Jesus to sacrifice Himself, to not want the redemption of humankind, is cruel as Satan is cruel. To have one of His disciples set his mind "not ... on God's interests, but man's," is no more than a "stumbling block" to Jesus.In other words, as I see it, Jesus is imploring Peter to open his heart and his eyes beyond the narrow, self-serving, tainted worldview Peter expressed and to see instead the greater picture and the massive benefit that the world will gain from Jesus' death.Luke 19:27 "But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence." We must remember that Jesus often speaks in parables, or stories that are representative of a message He wishes to share. This quote is the final sentence of the parable of the money usage. As it clearly says at the beginning of this parable, it was meant to explain that the kingdom of God was not imminent: "While they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem, and they supposed that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately." (Luke 19:11)To understand the full message of the parable one must, of course, read the entire parable, which I would suggest anyone wishing to interpret it correctly do.In the parable, Jesus indicates that it will take time for the kingdom of God to appear. Those who take what they are given and turn it into something better will be duly rewarded; those who do nothing with what they are given will end up with less than they started with.Ultimately, Jesus will return as the nobleman returned to judge the works of his slaves, at which time it will be the case that those who have chosen not to accept Jesus' reign will meet their end. They lived and will eternally die by their own choice. That does not mean that God delights in the loss, does not mean that God wishes for people to be lost; simply means that He respects the decision they have made to not be apart of His kingdom. And since there at that point is no alternate option to His kingdom, those who make that choice will simply cease to exist.

Why is Jesus important today?

ANSWER: Jesus Christ is important today for the same reason He was important on the day He was resurrected. Jesus has given man a way to be reconciled back to God. It is very important to know that mankind is on the road to hell. Hell as in the Lake of Fire that we are told about in Revelation 20:14-15. Jesus has told us in Matthew 7:13-14, "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." It is more evident every passing day that there will be few indeed who will enter heaven and eternal life. Mankind is indeed by nature wicked. The only way to God is through Jesus Christ, but false teachers have perverted God's message so badly that everyone thinks they are going to heaven. Beware! Jesus Christ is the only Savior of mankind. You who think you know the Bible and show your spiritually and do not present the Word of God in truth you will pay the price. Jesus Christ and the Bible are called "old', but they are not antiquated!! Jesus Christ is alive and as true today as He was 2000 years ago. He will return to judge mankind Soon! Are you ready?
