Both Sides of Every Story

As quotable as C.S. Lewis is, my favorite quote of his has to be the following:

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”

As was his style, in this one statement he says so much. The Christian worldview is not without its evidences. However, multitudes of skeptics over the centuries, to include Lewis, have been convinced, not only by the truth they see in Christianity, but also by the truth that it enables them to see.

When asked what books Christian apologists should read the average Christian would think of works like Josh McDowell’s Evidence That Demands A Verdict and other books by popular Christian apologists such as Ravi Zacharias, J.

Note: Before we look at today’s post I want to share an article by apologist J. Warner Wallace who wrote “Rules to Evaluate Alleged Bible Contradictions and Difficulties (Free Bible Insert)” two years ago but I only recent discovered it through Twitter.  I think they are complimentary with our post, “How to Handle Bible Contradictions.”  I appreciate detective Wallace sharing a lot of our posts refuting Bible contradictions.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: When David fled to Nob, what was the priest’s name?

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

Ahimelech

“Then David came to Nob to Ahimelech the priest; and Ahimelech came trembling to meet David and said to him, “Why are you alone and no one with you?”” (1 Samuel 21:1)

Abiathar

“And He *said to them, “Have you never read what David did when he was in need and he and his companions became hungry; 26 how he entered the house of God in the time of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the consecrated bread, which is not lawful for anyone to eat except the priests, and he also gave it to those who were with him?”” (Mark 2:25-26)

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

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

You might have heard people invoke the problem of evil as a problem for God and Christianity.

How would Chuck Norris handle this objection?  By showing the problem of evil actually presupposes God.

This is a recent four part series on Apologetics from the implication of Jesus’ own apologetics in Luke 20, which is an underrated chapter in the Bible that has implication for how we do apologetics.

This series is available in MP3 and also on Youtube (sound only).  Two of the sessions have additional PDF documents as well which is also linked below.  Also if you want to start with the most practical one of these messages start with session 2.

Since this is Christmas Eve I thought I gather in one post what contradictions I dealt with surrounding the account of the Birth of Jesus from the bigger lists of Bible Contradictions we have refuted.  The following are from the last two years.  Lord willing I plan to add more posts to the list for next Christmas!

Here’s the listing:
