This is the 30th Bible contradiction we refuted!

bible-contradiction-resolved-who-put-the-robe-on-jesus

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who put the robe on Jesus?

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

Herod’s soldiers

And Herod with his soldiers, after treating Him with contempt and mocking Him, dressed Him in a gorgeous robe and sent Him back to Pilate. (Luke 23:11)

Pilate’s soldiers

Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole Roman cohort around Him. 28 They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him.(Matthew 27:27-28)

Wishing to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas for them, and after having Jesus scourged, he handed Him over to be crucified. 16 The soldiers took Him away into the [a]palace (that is, the Praetorium), and they *called together the whole Roman [b]cohort. 17 They *dressed Him up in purple, and after twisting a crown of thorns, they put it on Him.  (Mark 15:15-17)

Pilate then took Jesus and scourged Him. 2 And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on His head, and put a purple robe on Him. (John 19:1-2)

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

I posted a little ditty on our Facebook page and Twitter but I thought I post this on the blog as well.  (If you haven’t followed us on social media feel free to like and follow us).

Biblically faithful preaching is harder to find today in more ways than one.  Perhaps the most common problem is that some no longer like to preach on sin.  If that is true I imagine it is more true that most people do not like Biblical preaching because it talks about sin.

But Why Must Preachers talk about Sin?

Here’s why:

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “Did Jesus say he would always be with his disciples?”

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

Yes

teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)

No

For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have Me. (Matthew 26:11)

For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them; but you do not always have Me. (Mark 14:7)

 For you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me. (John 12:8)

My first book review for 2017!

god-the-son-incarnate

Stephen J. Wellum. God the Son Incarnate.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, November 30th 2016.  480 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

This book is a part of Crossway’s Foundations of Evangelical Theology series.  I appreciated the series overall and this work on Christology is now among my top favorites in the series.  It is quite a meaty work and reading it was no small undertaking.  Reading this book makes me appreciate just how much Christian scholarship exists and how much that I still need to tap into.  I learned a lot reading this book.  In my opinion I think Stephen Wellum’s work is ideal as a seminary text book and for those who desire to seriously study the doctrines related to Christ more deeply.  In this review I am going to first summarize each parts and chapters of the book and end with some brief constructive criticisms.
