→Concerns with the story
There are a number of concerns with the story as related by William Branham:
#Why does William Branham's story differ significantly from those of Soininen and Moore, who were also in the car with William Branham?
#What was written in the flyleaf of the Bible?
#Why are there no surviving copies of Bibles with this vision written in their flyleaf?
#Did the boy immediately come back to life?
#Did the boy jump to his feet as if nothing had happened?
Two eye witnesses have relayed the story in addition to William Branham: Vilho Soininen, a Finnish pastor, and Jack Moore, a pastor from the U.S. (see the complete stories below). The facts from these two men are as follows:
'''William Branham tells a story that is significantly different''' from that told by Soininen and
one that changes over time:
#The boy had died and was laying on the street for half an hour before William Branham's vehicle arrived on the scene.
It is also interesting to note that Gordon Lindsay, who was in the front seat of the car, never told his version of the story in either the Voice of Healing Magazine or in his book.
