Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “Who carried Jesus’s cross?”

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

Jesus carried his own cross.

They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, carrying His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which in Hebrew is called, Golgotha. (John 19:17)

Simon the Cyrenian carried Jesus’s cross.

As they were coming out, they found a man of Cyrene named Simon, whom they compelled to carry His [cross. (Matthew 27:32)

And they *compelled a passer-by coming from the country, Simon of Cyrene (the father of Alexander and Rufus), to carry His cross. (Mark 15:21)

And when they led Him away, they seized a man, Simon of Cyrene, as he was coming in from the country, and placed on him the cross to carry behind Jesus. (Luke 23:26)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Was God satisfied with his creation?

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

Yes, he was pleased with everything he had made.

And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.” (Genesis 1:31)

No, he wished he’d never created it.

So the Lord was sorry that He had made mankind on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 Then the Lord said, “I will wipe out mankind whom I have created from the face of the land; mankind, and animals as well, and crawling things, and the birds of the sky. For I am sorry that I have made them.”” (Genesis 6:6-7)

Point: Sometimes when one engage in apologetics the issue of alleged Bible contradiction comes up.  There are times when those who assert that there are contradictory verses in the Bible fail to acknowledge that words can have more than one meaning and thus a word used in one context does not mean the same thing in another context.  But if one fail to recognize there are differences of meaning of the word being used in two separate contexts, a skeptic can easily assume there’s a Bible contradiction when there are none.  Are there any examples of this error to get the point across to a skeptic of their foolish methodology and mistake?

If you read this blog you know that I subscribe to Presuppositional Apologetics.  I won’t be rehearsing what Presuppositional Apologetics is but check out here for a compact definition and here for a lists of many lectures and of those many messages check out Apologetics: What Would Jesus Do? 4 Messages if you can’t decide.

From time to time I hear people say Cornelius Van Til, the father of Presuppositional Apologetics was a Postmodernist and that Presuppositionalism is Postmodernism.  This post was from a discussion I had online in another social media platform about this objection.

I don’t think this is true but I want to write a post to think through how does one deal with people bringing this objection and in general objections for other points about Christianity.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Was Jesus silent during his trial before Pilate?

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

He was silent.

And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He did not offer any answer. 13 Then Pilate *said to Him, “Do You not hear how many things they are testifying against You?” 14 And still He did not answer him in regard to even a single charge, so the governor was greatly amazed.” (Matthew 27:12-14)

And the chief priests started accusing Him of many things. 4 But Pilate questioned Him again, saying, “Do You offer nothing in answer? See how many charges they are bringing against You!” 5 But Jesus said nothing further in answer, so Pilate was amazed.” (Mark 15:3-5)

He spoke many words on his own behalf.

Therefore Pilate entered the Praetorium again, and summoned Jesus and said to Him, “You are the King of the Jews?” 34 Jesus answered, “Are you saying this on your own, or did others tell you about Me?” 35 Pilate answered, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests handed You over to me; what have You done?” 36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.” 37 Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this purpose I have been born, and for this I have come into the world: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice.”” (John 18:33-37)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How should the Moabites be treated?

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

Do not fight against them or take their land.

Then the Lord said to me, ‘Do not attack Moab, nor provoke them to war, for I will not give you any of their land as a possession, because I have given Ar to the sons of Lot as a possession.” (Deuteronomy 2:9)

Kill them and take their land.

Then he said to them, “Pursue them, for the Lord has handed your enemies the Moabites over to you.” So they went down after him and took control of the crossing places of the Jordan opposite Moab, and did not allow anyone to cross. 29 They struck and killed about ten thousand Moabites at that time, all robust and valiant men; and no one escaped. 30 So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land was at rest for eighty years.” (Judges 3:28-30)

There is no longer praise for Moab; In Heshbon they have devised disaster against her: ‘Come and let’s cut her off from being a nation!’ You too, [a]Madmen, will be silenced; The sword will follow you.” (Jeremiah 48:2)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who was Noah’s youngest son?

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

Ham

Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. 23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it on both their shoulders and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were turned away, so that they did not see their father’s nakedness. 24 When Noah awoke from his wine, he knew what his youngest son had done to him.” (Genesis 9:22-24)

Japheth

Now after Noah was five hundred years old, Noah fathered Shem, Ham, and Japheth.” (Genesis 5:32)

And Noah fathered three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Genesis 6:10)

On this very same day Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark, ” (Genesis 7:13)

Now the sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and Ham was the father of Canaan.” (Genesis 9:18)

Now these are the records of the generations of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and sons were born to them after the flood. (Genesis 10:1)

Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.” (1 Chronicles 1:4)
