Today I want to share a thesis that was completed for a Masters of Religion that was completed over at Reformed Theological Seminary.  It was completed last year in 2018.  It is titled “A Defense of Presuppositional Apologetics and Its Practical Application to the Public University Campus” and written by R. Shane Hartley.  I have found Presuppositional apologetics when properly understood and properly employed to be a very helpful and powerful apologetic.  I am also involved with college campus evangelism in which I will start back again next Lord willing (pray for me!).  So this thesis obviously caught my attention.

What is this thesis specifically about?  In his introductory paragraph to his thesis Mr. Hartley wrote the following summary:

I’m excited to share this!  Lauren of Afterthought podcast have posted her latest episode over at her blog:

She invited me to be on her to show to talk about the topic of responding to alleged Bible contradictions!  The approach we took for the show is to make this as practical as possible for discussion with real people and not just theoretical.  We discussed how its important to understand the definition of an alleged Bible contradiction, then looked at some examples of alleged Bible contradictions and frequent types of mistakes people make when they claimed an alleged Bible contradictions.  We also went over various analogies and illustrations of real life examples where the skeptics’ reasoning is problematic for every day life if they are to use their reasoning against the Bible.

You can check out the podcast and listen to it on Podbean here.  If you want the show in other format check out this link such as Google Play, ITunes, etc. Or here’s the Youtube video of the discussion below:

Drop us a comment here of what you think of the discussion!

GO TO PART 51

 

Point: I had to write down this analogy that I discussed in a podcast at Biblical Beginnings that is going to come out next week.  Sometimes when one engage in evangelism and apologetics the issue of alleged Bible contradiction comes up and the example given of a Bible contradiction really isn’t a Bible contradiction.   What I found helpful is to ask the skeptic to define what is a contradiction as the foundation for the direction of any further discussion of whether or not there’s a Bible contradiction.  Here’s the definition I give for “contradiction:”

A contradiction occurs when two or more claims conflict with one another so that they cannot simultaneously be true in the same sense and at the same time.  To put it another way, a Bible contradiction exists when there are claims within the Bible that are mutually exclusive in the same sense and at the same time.

 Are there illustrations to help us think more critically and accurately of when there’s a contradiction and when there’s an apparent contradiction (that is, they really are not a contradiction)?

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How old was Benjamin when his clan migrated to Egypt?

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

He was an infant.

 We said to my lord, ‘We have an old father and a little child of his old age. Now his brother is dead, so he alone is left of his mother, and his father loves him.’” (Genesis 44:20)

But we said to my lord, ‘The lad cannot leave his father, for if he should leave his father, his father would die.” (Genesis 44:22)

He was a grown man with ten sons.

Now these are the names of the sons of Israel, Jacob and his sons, who went to Egypt: Reuben, Jacob’s firstborn.” (Genesis 46:8)

The sons of Benjamin: Bela and Becher and Ashbel, Gera and Naaman, Ehi and Rosh, Muppim and Huppim and Ard.” (Genesis 46:21)

 

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

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