    Contradictions

    "If Yahweh is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33) and the Bible is the inerrant word of Yahweh (2 Peter 1:19-21, 2 Timothy 3:16) and if oral tradition was so high-fidelity in ancient times, why are there so many contradictions?

    Which version of the Bible is inerrant?

    Was Joseph's father Jacom (Matthew 1:2) or Heli (Luke 3:23)?

    Can you see Yahweh's face (Genesis 32:30), or not (Exodus 33:20)?

    Did Mary and Joseph flee to Egypt (Matthew 2:1-23), or return to Nazareth (Luke 2:1-40)?

    Did Jesus die the day before the Passover (John 19:31) or the day after the Passover (Mark 14:12)?

    Was Mary Magdalene informed of the resurrection by an angel (Matthew 28:5) or by Jesus (John 20:14)?

    Did Satan incite David to conduct a census (1 Chronicles 21:1), or did Yahweh (2 Samuel 24:1)?

    Was Jehoiachin eighteen (2 Kings 24:8) or eight (2 Chronicles 36:9) when he became king?

    Was Ahaziah twenty-two (2 Kings 8:26) or forty-two (2 Chronicles 22:2) when he began to reign?

    Did Jesus clear the temple at the beginning (John 2:13-22) or the end (Mark 15:11-19) of his ministry?

    Did Paul's companions hear the voice (Acts 9:7) during Paul's conversion experience or not (Acts 22:9)?

    Can witnesses be convinced by a risen Lazarus (John 11:38-44), or not (Luke 16:19-31)?

    Did Judas hang himself (Matthew 27:5), or did his intestines explode (Acts 1:18)?

    Did Judas give the money back (Matthew 27:3), or did he buy a field (Acts 1:18)?

    On the day he died was Jesus in Paradise (Luke 23:43) or Hell (Matthew 12:40)?

    Was Jesus in Hell for 3 nights (Matthew 12:40), or 2 nights (Matthew 27:45-50, Matthew 28:1)?

    Was the stone rolled away before (John 20:1) or after (Matthew 28:1-2) the women arrived at the tomb?

    Did the sun rise before (Mark 16:2) or after (John 20:1) the women arrived at the tomb?

    Did Nicodemus provide the spices (John 19:39), or did the women (Mark 16:1, Luke 23:56)?

    Did Jesus appear to eleven disciples (1 Corinthians 15:5 Latin Vulgate), or twelve disciples (1 Corinthians 15:5 English NRSV)?

    Do you get into Heaven based on your deeds (Matthew 16:27, James 2:17), or your blind faith (Ephesians 2:8, Galatians 2:16)?

    Is everyone who calls on the lord saved (Acts 2:21) or not (Matthew 7:21)?

    Do you consider the contradictions in holy books of other religions to be good arguments against their claims of divine authority? For example, in Surah 1:1 of the Qur'an, Allah is called most merciful. In Surah 24:2 Allah gives no mercy to pregnant women. Do you find this contradiction a good argument against the divine inerrancy of the Qur'an?

    If the original manuscripts of the Bible were accurate but errors crept into copies, why did Yahweh let that happen?"

    WTF are you talking about dude?!? We are not talking about some morons on the side of the street that witnessed a car wreck, the Bible is marketed as the “inspired word of God” written decades to Centuries later. 🤦‍♂️

    Then why didn’t God inspire 4 separate accounts for every story in the Old Testament? That would make THEM more reliable too, wouldn’t it?

    Ad hoc, special pleading, obfuscation

    The gospels are not eyewitness accounts, that's your first mistake and/or assumption. Mark is the earliest gospel, Matthew and Luke depends heavily on Mark, while John could have been influenced by them but took his gospel in more of a gnostic direction.

    You might not have viewed them as contradictions, but so what? Others have, and have pointed them out as such. You might be in a marriage where your spouse is gay/lesbian but you don't see it, but others do (that isn't a knock on homosexuals, it's just a reality in marriages sometimes)
