whoppers-and-bible-contradictions

Point: Sometimes what is found in the skeptics’ list of Bible contradictions are not contradictions but are what appears to be contradictions because the skeptic hasn’t account for the fact that words can have more than one meaning.  How should one respond when a skeptic’s retort back is that this is a cop-out or they throw the objection that it is too hard to find out the true meaning of a word is in the Bible?

Picture: My counter question would be: Aren’t there examples where words can mean more than one thing even in the natural realm in which we can find out what the usage of the word means?  Of course there is.  Think of the case of whoppers.

bible-contradiction-was-lot-abrahams-brother-or-nephew

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “Was Lot Abraham’s brother or nephew?”

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

Lot was Abraham’s brother.

When Abram heard that his [a]relative had been taken captive, he led out his trained men, born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, and went in pursuit as far as Dan.  (Genesis 14:14)He brought back all the goods, and also brought back his [a]relative Lot with his possessions, and also the women, and the people. (Genesis 14:16)

Lot was Abraham’s nephew.

Now these are the records of the generations of Terah. Terah became the father of Abram, Nahor and Haran; and Haran became the father of Lot. (Genesis 11:27)Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his nephew, and all their possessions which they had accumulated, and the [a]persons which they had acquired in Haran, and they [b]set out for the land of Canaan; thus they came to the land of Canaan. (Genesis 12:5)

They also took Lot, Abram’s nephew, and his possessions and departed, for he was living in Sodom. (Genesis 14:12)

(Note: Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

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