Ep. 1072: Does the Bible Contradict Itself? (Part I)

May 7, 2019

The Bible is a big, complex and deeply misunderstood book.  It was written over a period of 1,500 years by up to 40 authors.  It was written in three different languages.  To make matters more complicated, it has been translated a myriad of times through the last few thousand years and has suffered the unfortunate treatment of being altered along the way by some of its translators.  Many (especially atheists) have enthusiastically pointed out numerous glaring contradictions in its pages. In the midst of all this, we confidently proclaim the Bible is the inspired and harmonious word of God!  Who is right?  Is the Bible contradictory or can each and every contradiction be explained?
