bible-contradiction-did-jesus-say-he-would-always-be-with-his-disciples

For other posts see our Collection of Posts Responding to Bible Contradictions.

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)

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

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

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.

bible-contradiction-resolved-at-his-baptism-did-god-address-jesus-directly

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “At his baptism, did God address Jesus directly?”

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

Yes.

You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased. (Mark 1:11b, Luke 3:22b)

No, God addressed those who witnessed his baptism.

and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.” (Matthew 3:17)

resolving-six-christmas-bible-contradictions

 

This year I have a new focus on our blog of answering Bible contradictions.  Unfortunately I am a slow writer as every Bible contradictions take a lot of time for me to translate and work through and I wished I could crank out more posts resolving alleged Bible contradictions.  Since this is Christmas Eve I thought I gather in one post what contradictions I dealt with surrounding the account of the Birth of Jesus.  Lord willing I plan to add more posts to the list by next Christmas!

Here’s the listing:

come-thou-long-expected-jesus-experiencing-the-peace-and-promise-of-christmas

Nancy Guthrie. Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus: Experiencing the Peace and Promise of Christmas.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, August 1st, 2008.  142 pp.

5 out of 5!

First let me say that I have a hard time with devotional books; I prefer heavier theology books since I find most devotionals to be rather shallow.  But I enjoyed this particular collection of devotional readings for the Advent.  So if I enjoyed this book in light of my bias against devotionals, I think that this work might be something worthwhile for others too.
