For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who drove the Anakim from Hebron?

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

Joshua

Then Joshua came at that time and cut off the Anakim from the hill country, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab and from all the hill country of Judah and from all the hill country of Israel. Joshua utterly destroyed them with their cities.” (Joshua 11:21)

Caleb

Now he gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh a portion among the sons of Judah, according to the command of the Lord to Joshua, namely, Kiriath-arba, Arba being the father of Anak (that is, Hebron). 14 Caleb drove out from there the three sons of Anak: Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai, the children of Anak.” (Joshua 15:13-14)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

Jim Warner Wallace.  Cold-Case Christianity for Kids.  Colorado Springs, CO: David C. Cook, October 1st 2016. 127 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is an apologetics’ book geared towards kids.  The publisher labeled the book as Juvenile Nonfiction.  Technically it’s actually a book that lets the readers enter a fictional story of being a cadet in a “Cadet Academy” analogous to the Police Explore program (where kids have the opportunity to understand how the police work) but with a twist: the detective teaching the class also present reasons why Christianity is a faith that is true.  The author is Jim Warner Wallace who in real life has worked for decades as a police officer and cold-case detective.  As a detective he became a Christian when he started to look into Christianity.  With his background he applied his detective skills in evaluating and later defending the Christian worldview.  There’s definitely a lot of good illustrations, examples and analogy that detective Wallace draws upon to make his point throughout the book.  I read this aloud to my daughters and they enjoyed this book more than I expected (my oldest is eight and youngest is four).

Note: I was working on a book review late last night but one of my daughter was really sick so I couldn’t finish the review.  I thought I share these helpful videos by Christian apologist Anthony Rogers.

The Doctrine of the Trinity is foundational to Christian thought.  Christian Anthony Rogers begins his series on the Trinity in Jewish and Christian Scripture with an introduction, then discusses the Trinitarian implication of Genesis 1:26, followed by a response to two objections.  These two objections are: (1) The text is using the “plural of majesty”; and (2) the text is including angels as co-creators with God.  After that Roger discusses the Trinitarian implications of Genesis 19:24 which teaches there are Two Divine Persons.  Finally there’s a discussion of the divine “Angel” of the Lord in the book of Genesis.  All of this is just from the book of Genesis!  This is a well done series.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Should we follow our own hearts?

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

We should follow our heart and eyes.

Rejoice, young man, during your childhood, and let your heart be pleasant during the days of young manhood. And follow the impulses of your heart and the desires of your eyes. Yet know that God will bring you to judgment for all these things.” (Ecclesiastes 11:9)

We should not follow our heart and eyes.

It shall be a tassel for you to look at and remember all the commandments of the Lord, so as to do them and not follow after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you played the harlot,” (Numbers 15:39)

He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But he who walks wisely will be delivered.” (Proverbs 28:26)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:
