For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Paul visit all of the disciples when he went to Jerusalem after his conversion?

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

Yes.

When he came to Jerusalem, he tried repeatedly to associate with the disciples; and yet they were all afraid of him, as they did not believe that he was a disciple. 27 But Barnabas took hold of him and brought him to the apostles and described to them how he had seen the Lord on the road, and that He had talked to him, and how he had spoken out boldly in the name of Jesus at Damascus. 28 And he was with them, moving about freely in Jerusalem, speaking out boldly in the name of the Lord.” (Acts 9:26-28)

No.
