For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Can God be found through reason alone?

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

Yes.

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20)

No.

“‘Can you discover the depths of God? Can you discover the limits of the Almighty?’” (Job 11:7)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: When did Jesus say that he would return?

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

Before his disciples preach throughout Israel.

“But whenever they persecute you in one city, flee to [b]the next; for truly I say to you, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel until the Son of Man comes.” (Matthew 10:23)

 

After the gospel is preached throughout the world.

This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come..” (Matthew 24:14)

GO TO PART 54

Point: Sometimes when one engage in apologetics the issue of alleged Bible contradiction comes up.  There are times when those who assert that there are contradictory verses in the Bible fail to acknowledge that words can have more than one meaning and thus a word used in one context does not mean the same thing in another context.  But if one fail to recognize there are differences of meaning of the word being used in two separate contexts, a skeptic can easily assume there’s a Bible contradiction when there are none.  Are there any examples of this error to get the point across to a skeptic of their foolish methodology and mistake?

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Which came first: the calling of Peter and Andrew or the imprisonment of John the Baptist?

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

John the Baptist was imprisoned before Peter and Andrew were called.

Now when Jesus heard that John had been taken into custody, He withdrew into Galilee; 13 and leaving Nazareth, He came and settled in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali. 14 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: 15 “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles— 16 “The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light, And those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, Upon them a Light dawned.” 17 From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” 18 Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19 And He *said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”” (Matthew 4:12-19)

Now after John had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” 16 As He was going along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, the brother of Simon, casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men” (Mark 1:14-17)

Peter and Andrew were called before John the Baptist was imprisoned.

One of the two who heard John speak and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He *found first his own brother Simon and *said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which translated means Christ). 42 He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon the son of John; you shall be called Cephas” (which is translated Peter).” (John 1:40-42)

After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea, and there He was spending time with them and baptizing. 23 John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there; and people were coming and were being baptized— 24 for John had not yet been thrown into prison.” (John 3:22-24)
