bible contradiction mary blessed or not

Here’s a Bible contradiction that the Skeptic Annotated Bible has stated as not yet having any Christian response so we’re going to respond to it.

We begin with the question: “Was Mary (the mother of Jesus) blessed?”

Here’s the answer the skeptic gave along with the Scriptures:

Yes, according to the angel Gabriel.

Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee called Nazareth, 27 to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And coming in, he said to her, “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you.” (Luke 1:26-28)

No, according Jesus.

27 While Jesus was saying these things, one of the women in the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, “Blessed is the womb that bore You and the breasts at which You nursed.” 28 But He said, “On the contrary, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.” (Luke 11:27-28)

Note the above translation comes from the New American Standard Bible.

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

Marines body armor

Point: Many people today think it is wrong for Christians to correct wrong beliefs and worldview of others.  Sure Christians must do so with love but pointing out what is wrong and especially pointing out the wrong gospel that doesn’t save isn’t wrong.  Similarly some people need to understand that after hearing the true and biblical Gospel they need to trust in the Gospel (and that means trusting in Christ’s person and work).  Is there any helpful illustration to convey this?

Picture: When I was younger I was in the Marines and went to Iraq.  This is a tale of two Marines and their body Armor.

Where was Jesus born not a contradiction

This is another alleged Bible contradiction claim by skeptics that can be found at Skeptic Annotated Bible.  I think this one is kind of silly.

We begin with a question: Was Jesus born in a house or a manger?  Here are the two “answers” that the skeptic claims the Bible teaches:

In a manger, because there was no room at the inn

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
(Luke 2:1-7)

In a house

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, [a]magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.”

After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they [e]fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. (Matthew 2:1-2, 2:11)

Let’s take a closer look at whether there is a contradiction:

Feminist did not like calling God a He

Yesterday during my weekly campus evangelism I had a dialogue with a feminist woman who didn’t like how I called God “He.”

How does one respond?

A thought occurred to me when she stated her displeasure.

Here’s the dialogue:

Doctrine of God John Frame

As regular readers of our blogs know, from time to time I tackle some of the alleged contradictions of the Bible.  You can read them in our provisional Listing of Our Posts Answering Bible Contradictions.

I thought I share with you a quote from John Frame’s book on the Doctrine of God on apparent contradiction that I think is important to keep in mind when dealing with “apparent contradictions” in theology and apologetics:
