For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Was Jesus homeless?

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

Yes, he had nowhere to sleep.

Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.”” (Matthew 8:20)

No, he had his own house.

When He had come back to Capernaum several days afterward, it was heard that He was at home.” (Mark 2:1)

And it happened that He was reclining at the table in his house, and many tax collectors and sinners were dining with Jesus and His disciples; for there were many of them, and they were following Him.” (Mark 2:15)

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

No

The naive believes everything, But the sensible man considers his steps.” (Proverbs 14:15)

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Bible Contradiction: From what were the animals created?

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

From the waters.

Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.  God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:20-21)

From the ground

Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.” (Genesis 2:19)
