Hello everybody, I’m having trouble on how to explain Theologically how it can be coherent that God allowed the massacre of the infants at the beggining of the book of Matthew, please help me!
1- Why did God make a prophecy that it would be a Massacre of Innocents? Did God foretold a Massacre of infants before it happens??
2- Why Mary and Joseph did not alert the other parents to run away before the soldiers came to kill the children?
3- Why would God allow such terrible thing happens?
4- Can I explain that it was only a metaphor because it has no historical comprovation outside the bible?
