What a long week last week has been for me!  It was busy both on our blog and offline with ministry in light of Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday.  As readers will notice this past week we dealt with various attacks by skeptics concerning the final week of Jesus.

As a bit of a break this Sunday evening I read and reviewed a Christian children story that’s appropriate for this Resurrection Sunday which I imagine some of you would appreciate.

R.C. Sproul. The Donkey Who Carried a King.  Sanford, FL: Reformation Trust Publishing, February 17th, 2012. 48 pp.

I have previously enjoyed the author’s Christian children’s book titled The Priest with Dirty Clothes.  Written by Christian theologian R.C. Sproul, I appreciated that this book was biblically solid and yet enjoyable for young ones.  My three little girls who are all pre-school age also enjoyed this book when I read it aloud to them.

This year I tried to crank out more posts resolving Bible contradictions.  In a previous post I wrote on why refuting Bible Contradictions Takes Time.  As of Resurrection Sunday 2017 I have looked at 13 Bible contradictions that took place during the final week of Jesus’ life.  These posts are arranged below in chronological order:

I’ll be involved for most of Saturday with a church evangelistic outreach in light of upcoming Resurrection Sunday.  If the Lord leads you, pray for us.  I’ll be posting more later for our week’s series on answering critics concerning the final week of Jesus.

For now here’s some Messianic prophecies as presented by Dr. Phil Fernandes.

Reza Aslan is not without controversy.  You might have heard about him a few months ago when Reza Aslan outraged Hindus by eating human brains on CNN while he was visiting a group of cannibals.  Today I’m going to examine more carefully at Reza Aslan’s reasons that he believe that Jesus before Pilate is a fabrication.  In 2013 he wrote a book titled “Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth” in which he has an extended discussion of why he thinks the Gospels’ account of Jesus before Pilate was a fabrication.  This discussion took place in chapter twelve of the book.

In this post I want to look first at his credentials, then examine one of the fallacious reasoning in his argument.  In my next post I will look at more problems with his reasoning.

Last month Shepherd’s Conference released the audios from this incredible conference.  In light of Good Friday and also our series of posts this week concerning apologetics and the last week of Jesus I thought I share the audios from that conference pertaining to Messianic prophecies.

We continue our week’s series on skeptics’ attack on the details of the final week of Jesus.  If you have benefited from these posts drop us a comment to let us know!

For today’s post will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Was Jesus taken to Caiaphas or Annas first?

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

Caiaphas

Those who had seized Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas, the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together. ” (Matthew 26:57)

They led Jesus away to the high priest; and all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes *gathered together. ” (Mark 14:53)

Having arrested Him, they led Him away and brought Him to the house of the high priest; but Peter was following at a distance.” (Luke 22:54)

Annas

and led Him to Annas first; for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year. ” (John 18:13)

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

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