We began a look at the claim that there are contradictions in the Bible in our Sunday School series Confident Faith.
First, we looked at 2 Peter 3:15-18 and how the Scriptures can be difficult at times, but they are still knowable. Just because a certain passage is hard for us doesn’t mean that there’s a contradiction or a problem with the Bible.
Then, using an example from J. Warner Wallace’s excellent book Cold-Case Christianity, we looked at how differences between passages doesn’t mean there are contradictions.
Audio and notes are available here. In the next class, we’ll look at specific examples of apparent contradictions and how to resolve them faithfully.
