I saw this on Reddit:

I’m a Christian, and I happen to be from America. Personally, I don’t really care where I’m from and have no pride in being from America. We aren’t this special place that God loves more than any other place, and I don’t understand the whole “God Given Right” to things such as gun ownership. None of that really correlated with who Jesus is, as he traveled to different places, loved everybody, and identified with his relation to God rather than his nationality.

What are your thoughts on this? I really want to get better perspective.

Here’s my thoughts:

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading a few weeks ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 2:8.  Here is my translation:

“καὶ πέμψας αὐτοὺς εἰς Βηθλέεμ εἶπεν· Πορευθέντες ἐξετάσατε ἀκριβῶς περὶ τοῦ
And he sent them to Bethlehem and he said “Go and search carefully for the

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who were the sons of David born in Hebron?

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

Amnon, Chileab, Absalom, Adonijah, Shephatiah, Ithream.

Sons were born to David at Hebron: his firstborn was Amnon, by Ahinoam the Jezreelitess; 3 and his second, Chileab, by Abigail the widow of Nabal the Carmelite; and the third, Absalom the son of Maacah, the daughter of Talmai, king of Geshur; 4 and the fourth, Adonijah the son of Haggith; and the fifth, Shephatiah the son of Abital; 5 and the sixth, Ithream, by David’s wife Eglah. These were born to David at Hebron.” (2 Samuel 3:2-5)

Amnon, Daniel, Absalom, Adonijah, Shephatiah, Ithream.

Now these were the sons of David who were born to him in Hebron: the firstborn was Amnon, by Ahinoam the Jezreelitess; the second was Daniel, by Abigail the Carmelitess; 2 the third was Absalom the son of Maacah, the daughter of Talmai king of Geshur; the fourth was Adonijah the son of Haggith; 3 the fifth was Shephatiah, by Abital; the sixth was Ithream, by his wife Eglah. 4 Six were born to him in Hebron, and there he reigned seven years and six months. And in Jerusalem he reigned thirty-three years.” (1 Chronicles 3:1-4)

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


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