bible-contradiction-what-did-the-centurion-call-jesus-when-he-died

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What did the Centurion call Jesus when he died?

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

The Son of God.

When the centurion, who was standing right in front of Him, saw the way He breathed His last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” (Mark 15:39)

Now the centurion, and those who were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!” (Matthew 27:54)

A righteous man.

Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he began praising God, saying, “Certainly this man was innocent.”
(Luke 23:47)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

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

As I’m going over this with a group of guys from my church I thought the following questions might be helpful for individuals and small groups to facilitate discussions and learning based upon the apologetics’ book “Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Jason Lisle.  It is a book that teaches Presuppositional apologetics that engages apologetics at the level of worldview.  Cornelius Van Til was instrumental in beginning this form of apologetics and others have developed and applied it.

For discussion questions for previous chapters click on the following:

The questions in this post will be for chapter 3 of the book.

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)
