For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: When was King Jabin killed?

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

He was killed by Joshua.

Then it came about, when Jabin king of Hazor heard of it, that he sent to Jobab king of Madon and to the king of Shimron and to the king of Achshaph,” (Joshua 11:1)

Then Joshua turned back at that time, and captured Hazor and struck its king with the sword; for Hazor formerly was the head of all these kingdoms. 11 They struck every person who was in it with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them; there was no one left who breathed. And he burned Hazor with fire.” (Joshua 11:10-11)

He was killed 120 years after Joshua’s death.

Now it came about after the death of Joshua that the sons of Israel inquired of the Lord, saying, “Who shall go up first for us against the Canaanites, to fight against them?”” (Judges 1:1)

Then the land had rest forty years. And Othniel the son of Kenaz died.” (Judges 3:11)

So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land was undisturbed for eighty years.” (Judges 3:30)

And the Lord sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor; and the commander of his army was Sisera, who lived in Harosheth-hagoyim.” (Judges 4:2)

The hand of the sons of Israel pressed heavier and heavier upon Jabin the king of Canaan, until they had destroyed Jabin the king of Canaan.” (Judges 4:24)
