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 6:11.  Here is my translation:

“SENTENCE 11 ἐνδύσασθε τὴν πανοπλίαν τοῦ θεοῦ πρὸς τὸ δύνασθαι ὑμᾶς στῆναι
Put on the Armor of God in order you be able to stand

πρὸς τὰς μεθοδείας τοῦ διαβόλου”
against the scheme of the devil

Here are some observations:

This alleged Bible contradiction took some time to write.  I had to sleep on it and do more research to respond to it.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: When (at what time of day) was Jesus crucified?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

At the third hour

It was the third hour when they crucified Him.” (Mark 15:25)

Sometime after the sixth hour

Now it was the day of preparation for the Passover; it was about the sixth hour. And he *said to the Jews, “Behold, your King!” 15 So they cried out, “Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him!” Pilate *said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.”16 So he then handed Him over to them to be crucified.” (John 19:14-16)

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

This is a late post today since I’ve been chasing all kinds of details researching for a post refuting an alleged Bible contradiction all night but I realize I had to go to sleep.  It’s a more difficult one and I had to sleep on it, even dream about doing Greek translation!  I’m still not done but Lord willing I will post it tommorow.  But that goe me thinking about appreciating other apologists who produce volumes of materials in defense of the faith.

For those interested in apologetics in defense of the faith concerning Islam, the Old Testament, Messianic prophecies and the Trinity, Sam Shamoun is someone you should remember.  He’s written quite a lot of materials on these subjects over the years and they are free.  He’s also engage in debates that you can find online such as Youtube and we have featured some of his debates as resources on our blog in the past.  He’s an apologist worth financially supporting by the way which you can do here.

Here’s a series of posts Sam has written concerning the question “Is Jesus God’s Servant or Son?”  Enjoy the links below!
