This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading a few weeks ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 2:8.  Here is my translation:

“καὶ πέμψας αὐτοὺς εἰς Βηθλέεμ εἶπεν· Πορευθέντες ἐξετάσατε ἀκριβῶς περὶ τοῦ
And he sent them to Bethlehem and he said “Go and search carefully for the

Every year around this time the mainstream media and various cable networks would feature things about Jesus and/or the Bible that often is inaccurate and deeply problematic.  This include this year’s History Channel featured series called “Jesus: His Life.”

What follows below is a written evaluation by Dan Cartwright of the eight episodes.

May the Lord bless this series for those who need it.

This last year I tried to put out more posts resolving Bible contradictions concerning the final week of Christ through His Ascension to add to the list I put out last year.  It takes some time on my part to go through them to provide exegetically sound refutations; Lord willing I will add more to this lists next year.  See my post I wrote on why refuting Bible Contradictions Takes Time.  As of Palm Sunday 2019 I have responded to 30 alleged Bible contradictions that took place during the final week of Jesus’ life up to His Ascension.  These posts are arranged below roughly in chronological order with additions added after last Resurrection Sunday labeled “NEW” in red:

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Where did Jesus first appear to the eleven disciples after the resurrection?

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

On a mountain top in Galilee.

But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated.” (Matthew 28:16)

In a room in Jerusalem.

Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen.” (Mark 16:14)

33 And they got up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found gathered together the eleven and those who were with them, 34 saying, “The Lord has really risen and has appeared to Simon.” 35 They began to relate [a]their experiences on the road and how He was recognized by them in the breaking of the bread. 36 While they were telling these things, He Himself stood in their midst and *said to them, “Peace be to you.” 37 But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing a spirit.” (Luke 24:33-37)

So when it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and *said to them, “Peace be with you.” (John 20:19)

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)
