The other day I saw that Twitter was trending with the hashtag #BoycottDelta.  It was about how supposedly Delta Airlines was racist and bigoted in kicking out a Muslim name Adam Saleh for speaking Arabic.

It’s ironic that the left spends so much time talking about censoring fake news…would be the very ones falling for (you guessed it) fake news.

So to those on the left: If you were guillby trending and think is something on the right, you might be part of the problem.

Here’s David Wood exposing Adam Saleh.  David Wood responded really well and cogently and gives examples to consider just how problematic Adam Saleh’s attempt to get attention is.

Share this with others for the sake of the truth because the truth matters.

bible-contradiction-who-was-jesuss-paternal-grandfather

In light of the Christmas season we are tackling “Christmas” related Bible Contradictions. For today’s post we will look at a question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked concerning the two genealogies of Jesus found in Matthew and Luke: “Who was Jesus’s paternal grandfather?”

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

Jacob.

Jacob was the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, by whom Jesus was born, who is called the Messiah. (Matthew 1:16)

Heli.

When He began His ministry, Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age, being, as was supposed, the son of Joseph, the son of Eli, (Luke 3:23)

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

Side Note: The Skeptic Annotated Bible uses the name “Heli” for Luke 3:23 whereas the NASB translate it as “Eli.”  The Skeptic Annotated Bible is going with the King James Version pronunciation and there is no major difficulties here, its just an issue of pronunciation. I will use the name “Heli” because it better captures the sound in my opinion and the term would be used interchangeably when I quote the NASB.

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

Scott Oliphint apologist

Rev. Dr. K. Scott Oliphint (PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary) is professor of apologetics and systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary.  He is a proponent of Presuppositional Apologetics which starts with a high view of the God of the Bible, Scripture and engages in apologetics at the level of worldviews.

He was recently on a show for the “Trinities Podcasts” which was loaded up online two days ago.  The topic: How Christianity Trumps Philosophy.  Readers should beware that not necessarily everything associated with “Trinities Podcasts” is orthodox although Dr. Oliphint who is being interviewed is himself orthodox.  Since our blog has a new wave of readers I would say if you are new to Presuppositional apologetics its better to start with .

Here’s the show as found on Youtube with further description below:

bible-contradiction-was-jesus-the-son-of-david

Today’s post took a little longer to post since I ended up chasing rabbit trails with rules of Greek syntax.

In light of the Christmas season we are tackling “Christmas” related Bible Contradictions. For today’s post we will look at a question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “Was Jesus the son of David?”  I noticed the Skeptic Annotated Bible actually posted this difficulty twice in their list with the second question being “Will the Messiah be a descendant of David?”

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

Yes.

From Jesus’ Genealogy:  

The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham (Matthew 1:1 cf. Matthew 1:6)

He was the son and seed of David, the furit of his loins his according to the flesh.

And so, because he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one of his descendants on his throne, (Acts 2:30) 

From the descendants of this man, according to promise, God has brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus, (Acts 13:23)

concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh, (Romans 1:3)

Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David. (2 Timothy 2:8)

 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” (Revelation 22:16)

No.

He is not the son of David. (How could David call him “Lord” if he was his son?)

If David then calls Him ‘Lord,’ how is He his son?” (Matthew 22:45)

And Jesus began to say, as He taught in the temple, “How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David 36 David himself said in the Holy Spirit, The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right handUntil I put Your enemies beneath Your feet.”’ 37 David himself calls Him ‘Lord’; so in what sense is He his son?” And the large crowd [c]enjoyed listening to Him. (Mark 12:35-37)

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