For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Jesus drink on the cross?

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

Yes

A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. 30 Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.” (John 19:29-30)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What did the soldiers give Jesus to drink?

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

Vinegar and gall

they gave Him wine to drink mixed with gall; and after tasting it, He was unwilling to drink.” (Matthew 27:34)

Wine and myrrh

They tried to give Him wine mixed with myrrh; but He did not take it.” (Mark 15:23)

Vinegar

Someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink, saying, “Let us see whether Elijah will come to take Him down.”” (Mark 15:36)

The soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, offering Him sour wine,” (Luke 23:36)

Vinegar and hyssop

A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth.” (John 19:29)
