For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How did Moses get water out of the rock?

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

By smiting it.

5 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Pass before the people and take with you some of the elders of Israel; and take in your hand your staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. 6 Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.” And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 He named the place Massah and Meribah because of the quarrel of the sons of Israel, and because they tested the Lord, saying, “Is the Lord among us, or not?”” (Exodus 17:5-7)

By talking to it.

and the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 8 “Take the rod; and you and your brother Aaron assemble the congregation and speak to the rock before their eyes, that it may yield its water. You shall thus bring forth water for them out of the rock and let the congregation and their beasts drink.”)” (Numbers 20:7-8)

By using the Umim and Thumim.

Of Levi he said, “Let Your Thummim and Your Urim belong to Your godly man, Whom You proved at Massah, With whom You contended at the waters of Meribah” (Deuteronomy 33:8)

GO TO PART 50

 

Point: An argument in the arsenal of Presuppositional apologetics is the Transcendental argument.  John Frame describes apologist Cornelius Van Til’s transcendental argument in the following matter with one of Van Til’s famous illustration:

The non-Christian, then, in Van Til’s famous illustration, is like a child sitting on her father’s lap, slapping his face. She could not slap him unless he supported her. Similarly, the non-Christian cannot carry out his rebellion against God unless God makes that rebellion possible. Contradicting God assumes an intelligible universe and therefore a theistic one.

I think what follows below is another illustration in explaining Presuppositional apologetics.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What tribe was Aijalon from?

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

Dan.

From the tribe of Dan, Elteke with its pasture lands, Gibbethon with its pasture lands, 24 Aijalon with its pasture lands, Gath-rimmon with its pasture lands; four cities.” (Joshua 21:23-24)

Ephraim.

Now some of the families of the sons of Kohath had cities of their territory from the tribe of Ephraim…Aijalon with its pasture lands and Gath-rimmon with its pasture lands” (1 Chronicles 6:66, 69)

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