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.

GO TO PART 50

 

Point: An argument in the arsenal of Presuppositional apologetics is the Transcendental argument.  John Frame describes apologist Cornelius Van Til’s transcendental argument in the following matter with one of Van Til’s famous illustration:

The non-Christian, then, in Van Til’s famous illustration, is like a child sitting on her father’s lap, slapping his face. She could not slap him unless he supported her. Similarly, the non-Christian cannot carry out his rebellion against God unless God makes that rebellion possible. Contradicting God assumes an intelligible universe and therefore a theistic one.

I think what follows below is another illustration in explaining Presuppositional apologetics.

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

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

Dan.

From the tribe of Dan, Elteke with its pasture lands, Gibbethon with its pasture lands, 24 Aijalon with its pasture lands, Gath-rimmon with its pasture lands; four cities.” (Joshua 21:23-24)

Ephraim.

Now some of the families of the sons of Kohath had cities of their territory from the tribe of Ephraim…Aijalon with its pasture lands and Gath-rimmon with its pasture lands” (1 Chronicles 6:66, 69)
