bible-contradiction-what-did-the-centurion-call-jesus-when-he-died

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What did the Centurion call Jesus when he died?

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

The Son of God.

When the centurion, who was standing right in front of Him, saw the way He breathed His last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” (Mark 15:39)

Now the centurion, and those who were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!” (Matthew 27:54)

A righteous man.

Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he began praising God, saying, “Certainly this man was innocent.”
(Luke 23:47)

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who put the robe on Jesus?

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

Herod’s soldiers

And Herod with his soldiers, after treating Him with contempt and mocking Him, dressed Him in a gorgeous robe and sent Him back to Pilate. (Luke 23:11)

Pilate’s soldiers

Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole Roman cohort around Him. 28 They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him.(Matthew 27:27-28)

Wishing to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas for them, and after having Jesus scourged, he handed Him over to be crucified. 16 The soldiers took Him away into the [a]palace (that is, the Praetorium), and they *called together the whole Roman [b]cohort. 17 They *dressed Him up in purple, and after twisting a crown of thorns, they put it on Him.  (Mark 15:15-17)

Pilate then took Jesus and scourged Him. 2 And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on His head, and put a purple robe on Him. (John 19:1-2)

bible-contradiction-resolved-is-it-a-a-good-thing-to-be-childish

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “Is it a good thing to be childish?”

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

Yes, it is good to be childish.

and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
(Matthew 18:3)

But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. (Matthew 19:14)

Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.” (Mark 10:15)

Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.” (Luke 18:17)

No, it is not good to be childish.

When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. (1 Corinthians 13:11)

Brethren, do not be children in your thinking; yet in evil be infants, but in your thinking be mature. (1 Corinthians 14:20)

As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness [b]in deceitful scheming; (Ephesians 4:14)
