For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Which tribe was Hyram from?

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

The tribe of Naphtali

Now King Solomon sent and brought Hiram from Tyre. 14 He was a widow’s son from the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in bronze; and he was filled with wisdom and understanding and skill for doing any work in bronze. So he came to King Solomon and performed all his work.” (1 Kings 7:13-14)

 

The tribe of Dan

Now I am sending Huram-abi, a skilled man, endowed with understanding, 14 the son of a Danite woman and a Tyrian father, who knows how to work in gold, silver, bronze, iron, stone and wood, and in purple, violet, linen and crimson fabrics, and who knows how to make all kinds of engravings and to execute any design which may be assigned to him, to work with your skilled men and with [e]those of my lord David your father..” (2 Chronicles 2:13-14)

Sometime in the morning today between 7-9 AM Pacific Standard Time, we hit a new milestone for our blog Veritas Domain: We have 1.6 million total views.  That’s the total of view since our blog began in 2006 but with most of the hits taking place the last few years.

It was a little under 8 months ago we were at 1.5 million.

Thank you all for reading our blog, commenting and discussing things, reblogging, tweeting and sharing this on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterests) along with emailing posts we have written.  Over the years a big factor for our having so much views have been search engines and social media.  Hats off to you all.

Just like last time I want to say its not ultimately not about the numbers.  I hope our blog is able to equip and edify believers and evangelizes nonbelievers.

Feel free to look through our old posts which contain topics of Apologetics, Theology, the Bible, Christian worldview, Bible devotionals, history, Presuppositional apologetics (Cornelius Van Til, etc), response to alleged Bible contradictions, refutation of heresies, practical Christian living, biblical counseling outlines, book reviews, homeschool lessons for kids, lectures, sermons, links to free resources, interviews, etc.

Ten days ago I got a comment on my post Who Is God? Trinity Debate: Dr. James White vs Bro. Joe Ventilacion that I want to respond to in this post.  For context the original post was a debate between Christian apologist James White and a defender of the cult Iglesia ni Cristo.

Iglesia ni Cristo denies the deity of Christ.  In the comment section of my post an individual name “TaTaton90” argued against the divinity of Christ. In this post I want address this specific argument:

Jesus Christ cannot be God and be praying to himself. 

Does the fact that Jesus prays to God mean that Jesus is not Divine?  I don’t think so.  Let me explain.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who were the sons of David born in Hebron?

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

Amnon, Chileab, Absalom, Adonijah, Shephatiah, Ithream.

Sons were born to David at Hebron: his firstborn was Amnon, by Ahinoam the Jezreelitess; 3 and his second, Chileab, by Abigail the widow of Nabal the Carmelite; and the third, Absalom the son of Maacah, the daughter of Talmai, king of Geshur; 4 and the fourth, Adonijah the son of Haggith; and the fifth, Shephatiah the son of Abital; 5 and the sixth, Ithream, by David’s wife Eglah. These were born to David at Hebron.” (2 Samuel 3:2-5)

Amnon, Daniel, Absalom, Adonijah, Shephatiah, Ithream.

Now these were the sons of David who were born to him in Hebron: the firstborn was Amnon, by Ahinoam the Jezreelitess; the second was Daniel, by Abigail the Carmelitess; 2 the third was Absalom the son of Maacah, the daughter of Talmai king of Geshur; the fourth was Adonijah the son of Haggith; 3 the fifth was Shephatiah, by Abital; the sixth was Ithream, by his wife Eglah. 4 Six were born to him in Hebron, and there he reigned seven years and six months. And in Jerusalem he reigned thirty-three years.” (1 Chronicles 3:1-4)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Where did Joseph’s brothers find the hidden money?

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

At home.

When they came to their father Jacob in the land of Canaan, they told him all that had happened to them, saying, 30 “The man, the lord of the land, spoke harshly with us, and took us for spies of the country. 31 But we said to him, ‘We are honest men; we are not spies. 32 We are twelve brothers, sons of our father; one is no longer alive, and the youngest is with our father today in the land of Canaan.’ 33 The man, the lord of the land, said to us, ‘By this I will know that you are honest men: leave one of your brothers with me and take grain for the famine of your households, and go. 34 But bring your youngest brother to me that I may know that you are not spies, but [k]honest men. I will give your brother to you, and you may trade in the land.’” 35 Now it came about as they were emptying their sacks, that behold, every man’s bundle of money was in his sack; and when they and their father saw their bundles of money, they were dismayed.” (Genesis 42:29-35)

At the inn.

As one of them opened his sack to give his donkey fodder at the lodging place, he saw his money; and behold, it was in the mouth of his sack.” (Genesis 42:27)

and it came about when we came to the lodging place, that we opened our sacks, and behold, each man’s money was in the mouth of his sack, our money in full. So we have brought it back in our hand.” (Genesis 43:21)

I have posted in the past “.”  That post was about how the alleged problem of evil presupposes Christian theism.  In this present post I’m assuming what’s taught in that previous post.  Yet what is presented here is not just looking at the problem of evil in terms of suffering from another angle but should be joined with the first post as reinforcing a Christian treatment of theodicy.
