This is the 30th Bible contradiction we refuted!

bible-contradiction-resolved-who-put-the-robe-on-jesus

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who put the robe on Jesus?

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

Herod’s soldiers

And Herod with his soldiers, after treating Him with contempt and mocking Him, dressed Him in a gorgeous robe and sent Him back to Pilate. (Luke 23:11)

Pilate’s soldiers

Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole Roman cohort around Him. 28 They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him.(Matthew 27:27-28)

Wishing to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas for them, and after having Jesus scourged, he handed Him over to be crucified. 16 The soldiers took Him away into the [a]palace (that is, the Praetorium), and they *called together the whole Roman [b]cohort. 17 They *dressed Him up in purple, and after twisting a crown of thorns, they put it on Him.  (Mark 15:15-17)

Pilate then took Jesus and scourged Him. 2 And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on His head, and put a purple robe on Him. (John 19:1-2)

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

As a Christian I do enjoy flying and the opportunity to share the Gospel (Jesus dying on the cross to save us sinners) with those next to me.  Now of course this must be done in a manner that is Godly and respectful.  It’s also a joy to talk to different people and walks of life.  Up to this point all my conversations have been cordial.

Apparently Christians aren’t the only ones who want to share their worldview.

This past weekend a lady and her husband was kicked off their flight because the wife was berating a Trump supporter flying home after the inauguration.

Let’s just say she did not talk to the Trump supporter in a Godly manner.

Here’s my two cent.  I realize my tone is stronger than usual but I think it captures just how dangerous some on the Left have become in their intolerance.

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “Did Jesus say he would always be with his disciples?”

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

Yes

teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)

No

For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have Me. (Matthew 26:11)

For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them; but you do not always have Me. (Mark 14:7)

 For you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me. (John 12:8)
