Cool Contradiction? I don't think so!

With 302 contradictions claimed I will have to start with 1. Number 298.
Contradictions
We will start with this easy one. Two different people. In fact there are 28 different Zechariahs in the bible.

More to come!

You appear to be unclear on the concept. The question is, can you give us a reason to believe they are two different people rather than the various authors of the bible have merely written an inconsistent fiction?

Biblical errancy speaks to the claim that the bible is a primary source of knowledge; if the bible supports two mutually contradictory interpretations equally well then the bible is useless as a primary epistemological source.

So, how do YOU know which Zechariahs it is referring to?

Oh, and I would love to see you try and tackle some of the biblical absurdities. And please give an explanation other than “God works in mysterious ways” or “it’s a metaphor”; frankly they are getting old.

And, please answer me this… it has been bothering me for a while now. Who exactly was the father of Joseph? Jacob (Mt.19:12) or Heli (Luke 3:23)?

How about #4?

Ahitub = greatgrandpa
Ahimelech = grandpa
Abiathar = father
Ahimelech = son.

Think about your own family. I bet some of you have a similar situation in your family tree.

Ah, so eloquent… wish I could write like that.

IMO such logic is wasted on Jesus Freak… though I’m hoping that he’ll prove me wrong.

In my bible Mt.19:12 says "For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it."

If this is the verse your refering to I don't see your logic. But I suspect a type-o or a bad reference.

Most apologists I am aware of say that Heli was really Mary's father...
