For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Will Jesus’s second coming be visible to all?

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

Yes.

Every eye will seem him coming in the clouds in all his glory

And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory.” (Matthew 24:30)

Then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.” (Mark 13:26)

Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” (Luke 21:27)

Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.” (Revelation 1:7)

No.

Nonbelievers will ever see him again.

After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also.” (John 14:19)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who was Laban’s father?

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

Laban was the son of Bethuel.

Then Isaac sent Jacob away, and he went to Paddan-aram to Laban, son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebekah, the mother of Jacob and Esau.” (Genesis 28:5)

Laban was the son of Nahor.

He said to them, ‘Do you know Laban the son of Nahor?” And they said, ‘We know him.’’” (Genesis 29:5)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who Was Achan’s father?

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

Achan’s father was Carmi.

But the sons of Israel acted unfaithfully in regard to the things under the ban, for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, from the tribe of Judah, took some of the things under the ban, therefore the anger of the Lord burned against the sons of Israel.” (Joshua 7:1)

Achan’s father is Zerah.

Then Joshua and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, the silver, the mantle, the bar of gold, his sons, his daughters, his oxen, his donkeys, his sheep, his tent and all that belonged to him; and they brought them up to the valley of Achor.” (Joshua 7:24)

Did not Achan the son of Zerah act unfaithfully in the things under the ban, and wrath fall on all the congregation of Israel? And that man did not perish alone in his iniquity.’” (Joshua 22:20)
