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.

Check out session 3 of

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 Christmas is around the corner I thought I look into this alleged Bible contradiction since it does touch on the genealogy of Jesus.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who was Zerubbabel’s father?

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

The sons of Pedaiah were Zerubbabel and Shimei. And the sons of Zerubbabel were Meshullam and Hananiah, and Shelomith was their sister. (1 Chronicles 3:19)

His father was Shealtiel.

Now these are the priests and the Levites who came up with Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua: Seraiah, Jeremiah, Ezra, (Nehemiah 12:1)In the second year of Darius the king, on the first day of the sixth month, the word of the Lord came by the prophet Haggai to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, saying, (Haggai 1:1)

After the deportation to Babylon: Jeconiah became the father of Shealtiel, and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel. (Matthew 1:12)

the son of Joanan, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, the son of Neri, (Luke 3:27)

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

This time of year with holidays around the corner we often see the media attack the Bible and Christianity.  Sometimes it isn’t just only the media but also in our personal relationship as well where people say things like the claim that there are Bible contradictions.

I want to share in this post another resource answering Bible contradictions that has to do with Christ’s human birth.

GO TO PART 44

Point: Some Christians engage in apologetics in a piecemeal fashion.  They give evidence here and there.  They refute an objection here and there.  They might not realize the importance of Presuppositional apologetics with its emphasis of going beyond the individual point and pursuing refutations at the level of presuppositions.
