This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading a few months ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Ephesians 6:2.  Here is my translation:

“SENTENCE 2 τίμα τὸν πατέρα σου καὶ τὴν μητέρα
Honor your father and mother

SUB-POINT ἥτις ἐστὶν ἐντολὴ πρώτη ἐν ἐπαγγελίᾳ”
For this is the first commandment with a promise

Here are some observations:

GO TO PART 46

Point: When someone comes to you with an attack on the Bible where they say there is a Bible contradiction and they provide you with an example sometimes Christians can respond in a knee-jerk fashion of giving a haphazard answer where they are “winging it” in order to quickly defend the faith.  But sometimes the solution might not be adequate in that both the Christian defender and the skeptic attacker haven’t dealt with the passage properly.  How can you illustrate the importance of refuting an alleged Bible contradiction in a way that motivate Christians to go deeper?

It is incredible the amount of dangerous rhetoric being spewed by the extremist Left.  Also it is incredible the blatant hypocrisy they display.  Case in point: Leftist and Feminist “theologian” Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite.  She is a Professor of Theology at Chicago Theological Seminary.

Recently she’s called for the public shaming of Sarah Huckabee Sanders and sees this as “what Jesus would do” [source: patheos.com/blogs/religionnow/2018/06/do-not-tolerate-the-intolerable-public-shaming-can-be-a-justice-action/].

This is the 70th alleged Bible contradiction we refuted.  Check out the rest at Collection of Posts Responding to Bible Contradictions.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How many believers were there at the time of the ascension?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction (skeptics’ comments included):

There were 120 believers after the ascension.

At this time Peter stood up in the midst of the brethren (a gathering of about one hundred and twenty persons was there together), and said,” (Acts 1:15)

There were more than 500 believers before the ascension.

After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep” (1 Corinthians 15:6)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

Our text is from the Greek translation of Ephesians 5:2.  Here is my translation:

“SENTENCE 2 καὶ περιπατεῖτε ἐν ἀγάπῃ
And walk in love

SUB-POINT καθὼς ‹+ καὶ ὁ Χριστὸς +› ἠγάπησεν ἡμᾶς
just as Christ also love us

SUB-POINT καὶ παρέδωκεν ἑαυτὸν ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν προσφορὰν καὶ θυσίαν τῷ θεῷ εἰς
and gave Himself for us an offering and sacrifice to God for

ὀσμὴν εὐωδίας”
fragrant aroma
