For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What did the soldiers give Jesus to drink?

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

Vinegar and gall

they gave Him wine to drink mixed with gall; and after tasting it, He was unwilling to drink.” (Matthew 27:34)

Wine and myrrh

They tried to give Him wine mixed with myrrh; but He did not take it.” (Mark 15:23)

Vinegar

Someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink, saying, “Let us see whether Elijah will come to take Him down.”” (Mark 15:36)

The soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, offering Him sour wine,” (Luke 23:36)

Vinegar and hyssop

A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth.” (John 19:29)

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

Sometime in the morning today between 7-9 AM Pacific Standard Time, we hit a new milestone for our blog Veritas Domain: We have 1.6 million total views.  That’s the total of view since our blog began in 2006 but with most of the hits taking place the last few years.

It was a little under 8 months ago we were at 1.5 million.

Thank you all for reading our blog, commenting and discussing things, reblogging, tweeting and sharing this on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterests) along with emailing posts we have written.  Over the years a big factor for our having so much views have been search engines and social media.  Hats off to you all.

Just like last time I want to say its not ultimately not about the numbers.  I hope our blog is able to equip and edify believers and evangelizes nonbelievers.

Feel free to look through our old posts which contain topics of Apologetics, Theology, the Bible, Christian worldview, Bible devotionals, history, Presuppositional apologetics (Cornelius Van Til, etc), response to alleged Bible contradictions, refutation of heresies, practical Christian living, biblical counseling outlines, book reviews, homeschool lessons for kids, lectures, sermons, links to free resources, interviews, etc.

Having thus far refuted 106 alleged Bible contradictions listed by the Skeptic Annotated Bible I noticed over time a pattern of repeated mistakes made when there’s an assertion of a contradiction from the Bible.

In dealing with alleged Bible contradictions its always important to keep the definition of what’s a contradiction front and center in one’s mind before dealing with specific examples.  As given in many of my posts here’s the definition of a contradiction:  “A contradiction occurs when two or more claims conflict with one another so that they cannot simultaneously be true in the same sense and at the same time.  To put it another way, a Bible contradiction exists when there are claims within the Bible that are mutually exclusive in the same sense and at the same time.”

Below I list seven types of frequent mistakes made by the skeptics so that readers can be equipped in identifying frequent errors made when someone claimed two or more passages of Scripture are contradicting.  Some of these types of errors are over-lapping.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How long did Jehoash reign?

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

40 years

In the seventh year of Jehu, Jehoash became king, and he reigned forty years in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Zibiah of Beersheba.” (2 Kings 12:1)

16 years

In the thirty-seventh year of Joash king of Judah, Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz became king over Israel in Samaria, and reigned sixteen years.” (2 Kings 13:10)

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

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