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

He was 18 years old and he reigned for 3 months.

Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned for three months in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Nehushta the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.” ( 2 Kings 24:8)

He was 8 years old and he reigned for 3 months and 10 days.

Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned for three months and ten days in Jerusalem. He did evil in the sight of the Lord.” (2 Chronicles 36:9)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who hardened the Pharaoh’s heart?

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

God did.

The Lord said to Moses, “When you go back to Egypt see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have put in your power; but I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go.” (Exodus 4:21)

But I will harden Pharaoh’s heart that I may multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt.” (Exodus 7:3)

Yet Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he did not listen to them, as the Lord had said.” (Exodus 7:13)

And the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not listen to them, just as the Lord had spoken to Moses.” (Exodus 9:12)

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh, for I have [a]hardened his heart and the heart of his servants, that I may [b]perform these signs of Mine among them” (Exodus 10:1)

But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not let the sons of Israel go.” (Exodus 10:20)

But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he was not willing to let them go.” (Exodus 10:27)

Moses and Aaron performed all these wonders before Pharaoh; yet the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not let the sons of Israel go out of his land.” (Exodus 11:10)

Thus I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will chase after them; and I will be honored through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord.” And they did so.” (Exodus 14:4)

The Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and he chased after the sons of Israel as the sons of Israel were going out boldly.” (Exodus 14:8)

Then the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord, when I am honored through Pharaoh, through his chariots and his horsemen.”” (Exodus 14:18)

The Pharaoh did.

But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart and did not listen to them, as the Lord had said.” (Exodus 8:15)

But Pharaoh hardened his heart this time also, and he did not let the people go.” (Exodus 8:32)

But when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the [a]thunder had ceased, he sinned again and [b]hardened his heart, he and his servants.” (Exodus 9:34)

Why then do you harden your hearts as the Egyptians and Pharaoh hardened their hearts? When He had severely dealt with them, did they not allow [a]the people to go, and they departed?” (1 Samuel 6:6)
