I love Jerry Bridges who have written many wonderful books on Christian holy living.  Like other books by Bridges this title was edifying and helpful.  Here in this work Jerry Bridges focuses on Christian relationship with other believers and also relationship to the church.  In our individualistic day and age this book is very relevant.

bible_contradiction_who_wrote_the_pentateuch_resolved

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who wrote the Pentateuch?

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

Moses wrote the entire Pentateuch.

So Moses wrote this Law and gave it to the priests, the sons of Levi who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and to all the elders of Israel.” (Deuteronomy 31:9)

These are the words that Moses spoke to all Israel across the Jordan in the wilderness, in the Arabah opposite Suph, between Paran and Tophel, Laban, Hazeroth, and Dizahab.” ( Deuteronomy 1:1)

There were other authors.

Unless Moses called himself (using the 3rd person) the meekest man “upon the face of the earth.”: “(Now the man Moses was very humble, more than any person who was on the face of the earth.)” (Numbers 12:3)

Observed and described his own death and burial. And then said that no one knows exactly where he was buried: “So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, in accordance with the [a]word of the Lord. 6 And He buried him in the valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-peor; but no one knows his burial place to this day.” (Deuteronomy 34:5-6)

And unless Moses claimed to be be greatest prophet, saying there hasn’t been as great a prophet ever since: “Since that time no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face,” (Deuteronomy 34:10)

unbelievers know God spirtually blind

Someone asked: Are unbelievers spiritually blinded? If everyone in their heart knows there is a God, how can they be blinded?

This is a question that particularly is one that concerns the Presuppositional Apologists who say nonbelievers in some sense actually know God but are also spiritually blinded.  If someone is not careful, one can think this is an objection to Presuppositional Apologetics.

Here’s my take:

bible_contradiction_when_was_jesus_rejected_resolved

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: When was Jesus rejected by the people in his hometown of Nazareth?

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

Early in his ministry

And so when the devil had finished every temptation, he left Him until an opportune time. 14 And Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about Him spread through all the surrounding region. 15 And He began teaching in their synagogues and was praised by all. 16 And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read. 17 And the scroll of Isaiah the prophet was handed to Him. And He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written: 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed, 19 To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” 20 And He rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down; and the eyes of all the people in the synagogue were intently directed at Him. 21 Now He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” 22 And all the people were speaking well of Him, and admiring the [c]gracious words which were coming from His [d]lips; and yet they were saying, “Is this not Joseph’s son?” 23 And He said to them, “No doubt you will [e]quote this proverb to Me: ‘Physician, heal yourself! All the miracles that we heard were done in Capernaum, do here in your hometown as well.’” 24 But He said, “Truly I say to you, no prophet is welcome in his hometown. 25 But I say to you in truth, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the sky was shut up for three years and six months, when a severe famine came over all the land; 26 and yet Elijah was sent to none of them, but only to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. 27 And there were many with leprosy in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.” 28 And all the people in the synagogue were filled with rage as they heard these things; 29 and they got up and drove Him out of the city, and brought Him to the crest of the hill on which their city had been built, so that they could throw Him down from the cliff. 30 But He passed through their midst and went on His way.” ( Luke 4:13-30)

Much later

53 When Jesus had finished these parables, He departed from there. 54 And He came to His hometown and began teaching them in their synagogue, with the result that they were astonished, and said, “Where did this man acquire this wisdom and these miraculous powers? 55 Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is His mother not called Mary, and His brothers, James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas? 56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this man acquire all these things?” 57 And they took offense at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not dishonored except in his hometown and in his own household.” 58 And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief.” (Matthew 13:53-58)

Jesus went out from there and *came into His hometown; and His disciples *followed Him. 2 And when the Sabbath came, He began to teach in the synagogue; and the many listeners were astonished, saying, “Where did this man learn these things, and what is this wisdom that has been given to Him, and such miracles as these performed by His hands? 3 Is this not the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are His sisters not here with us?” And they took offense at Him. 4 Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not dishonored except in his hometown and among his own relatives, and in his own household.” 5 And He could not do any miracle there except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.” (Mark 6:1-5)

We hit a new milestone for our blog Veritas Domain: Sometime yesterday on April 29th around 8 AM Pacific Standard Time we had 2.1 million total views!  That’s the total of view since our blog began in September 2006 but with most of the hits taking place the last few years.

It was 7 months ago to get to here from when we were at 2 million.  Took longer for this 100,000 than the previous milestones since it seems we have less hits than before.

praying

Prayer is Mightier than the Sword

I am going to make this post of my thoughts on Exodus 17:8-16 on the importance of prayer in case in the future I preach on it and research more nevertheless here’s my initial thoughts looking at the passage.  The passage overall purpose is prayer is important; its so important that prayer might be mightier than the sword.

The holding up of the hands is an action of prayer; see Psalm 63:4 and 1 Timothy 2:8.

bible_contradiction_what_was_jesus_s_sixth_commandment_resolved

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What was Jesus’s sixth commandment?

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

Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

And He said to him, “Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you want to enter life, keep the commandments.” 18 Then he *said to Him, “Which ones?” And Jesus said, “You shall not commit murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not give false testimony; 19 Honor your father and mother; and You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”” ( Matthew 19:17-19)

Honour thy father and mother.

You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not give false testimony, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.’”” (Mark 10:19)

There was no sixth. Jesus listed only five commandments.

“You know the commandments, ‘Do not commit adultery, Do not murder, Do not steal, Do not give false testimony, Honor your father and mother.’” (Luke 18:20)
