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)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Was Jehu the son or grandson of Nimshi?

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

Jehu was the son of Nimshi.

and Jehu the son of Nimshi you shall anoint king over Israel; and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel-meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place.” (1 Kings 19:16)

Jehu was the grandson of Nimshi.

When you arrive there, search out Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat the son of Nimshi, and go in and bid him arise from among his brothers, and bring him to an inner room.” (2 Kings 9:2)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How did Jesus respond when questioned by the high priest?

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

He did not answer directly.

But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest said to Him, “I adjure You by the living God, that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God.” 64 Jesus *said to him, “You have said it yourself; nevertheless I tell you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.”” (Matthew 26:63-64)

And they all said, “Are You the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “Yes, I am.”” (Luke 22:70)

He answered directly by saying, “I am.”

And Jesus said, “I am; and you shall see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.”” (Mark 14:62)

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

I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.” (John 16:12)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Where did John baptize?

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

In the Jordan River

Now John himself had a garment of camel’s hair and a leather belt around his waist; and his food was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then Jerusalem was going out to him, and all Judea and all the district around the Jordan; 6 and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, as they confessed their sins.” (Matthew 3:4-6)

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.” (Mark 1:9)

In Bethabara, beyond the Jordan

These things took place in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.” (John 1:28)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Jehoiakim die in Babylon or near Jerusalem?

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

He died in Babylon.

Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem; and he did evil in the sight of the Lord his God. Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up against him and bound him with bronze chains to take him to Babylon.” (2 Chronicles 36:5-6)

He died near Jerusalem.

Therefore thus says the Lord in regard to Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, “They will not lament for him: ‘Alas, my brother!’ or, ‘Alas, sister!’ They will not lament for him: ‘Alas for the master!’ or, ‘Alas for his splendor!’ 19 “He will be buried with a donkey’s burial, Dragged off and thrown out beyond the gates of Jerusalem.” (Jeremiah 22:18-19)
