bible_contradiction_where_did_aaron_die_resolved

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Where did Aaron die?

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

Aaron died on mount Hor.

So Moses did just as the Lord had commanded, and they went up to Mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation. 28 And after Moses stripped Aaron of his garments and put them on his son Eleazar, Aaron died there on the mountain top. Then Moses and Eleazar came down from the mountain.” (Numbers 20:27-28)

Then Aaron the priest went up to Mount Hor at the command of the Lord, and died there in the fortieth year after the sons of Israel had come from the land of Egypt, on the first day in the fifth month.” (Numbers 33:38)

Aaron died at Mosera.

(Now the sons of Israel set out from Beeroth Bene-jaakan to Moserah. There Aaron died and there he was buried, and his son Eleazar served as priest in his place.” (Deuteronomy 10:6)

bible_contradiction_resolved_how_many_languages_were_there_before_the_tower_of_babel_was_built

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How many languages were there before the Tower of Babel was built?

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

There was only one language.

Now all the earth used the same language and the same words.” (Genesis 11:1)

6 And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they have started to do, and now nothing which they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, so that they will not understand one another’s speech.” 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth; and they stopped building the city. 9 Therefore it was named Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.” (Genesis 11:6-9)

There were many languages.

From these the people of the coastlands of the nations were separated into their lands, every one according to his language, according to their families, into their nations.” (Genesis 10:5)

These are the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, by their lands, and by their nations.” (Genesis 10:20)

These are the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their languages, by their lands, and according to their nations.” (Genesis 10:31)

bible_contradiction_resolved_have_christians_been_raised_with_christ

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Have Christians been raised with Christ?

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

Yes, they were raised in baptism through faith.

having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.” ( Colossians 2:12)

Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” (Colossians 3:1)

No, they will be raised after they die.

Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection,” ( Romans 6:4-5)

Behold, I am telling you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)

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)
