The "Inerrancy" of the Bible *********************************** ------------------------------------------------------ God creates animals and then man - Gen 1:25-26 God creates man and then the animals - Gen 2:18-19 ------------------------------------------------------- Arpachshad's son was Shelah - Gen 11:12 Arpachshad's grandson was Shelah - Luke 3:35-36 ------------------------------------------------------- Noah takes 7 pairs of each type of animal onto the ark - Gen 7:2-3 Noah takes one pair of animal onto the ark - Gen 6:19 ------------------------------------------------------- Terah's lifespan. According to Gen 11:26, Terah was 70 when Abraham was born and Abraham was 75 when he left Haran. Therefore he lived 70 years (ie. his age when Abraham was born) plus 75 years (the age of Abraham when he left Haran - as stated in Gen 12:4). He did not live beyond this as Acts 7:4 states Terah was dead when Abraham left Haran. So 70 + 75 = 145 years in total. However, Gen 11:32 states he lived 205 years. ------------------------------------------------------- God promises Abraham the land of Canaan to live in - Gen 17:8 God did not allow Abraham to live in the promised land - Acts 7:5, Heb 11:8,9,13 ------------------------------------------------------- Jacob's offspring in Egypt totalled 70 - Gen 46:26-27, Ex 1:5 Jacob's offspring in Egypt totalled 75 - Acts 7:14 ------------------------------------------------------- Jacob was buried in a cave in Machpelah's field that was bought from Ephron the Hittite - Gen 50:13 Jacob was buried in a tomb at Shechem bought from the sons of Hamor - Acts 7:15-16 ------------------------------------------------------- The Hebrews dwelt in Egypt for 430 years - Ex 2:40 The Hebrews dwelt in Egypt for 400 years - Acts 7:6 ------------------------------------------------------- God's plague kills 23,000 - Num 25:9 God's plague kills 24,000 - 1 Cor 10:8 ------------------------------------------------------- The Hebrews' journeying - Mount Hor (where Aaron dies), Zalmonah, Punon - Num 33:37,38,41,42 The Hebrews' journeying - Beeroth Benejaakan, Moserah (where Aaron dies), Gudgodah, Jotbathah - Deut 10:6,7 ------------------------------------------------------- God forbids killing - Ex 20:13 God commands killing - Ex 32:27 ------------------------------------------------------- Solomon's reign. Acts 13:16-22 numbers the years from when the Hebrews left Egypt to David beginning his reign as 40 (Wilderness) + 450 (Judges) + 40 (Saul) = 530 years. According to 1 Chron 29:27, David reigned 40 years, so Solomon became king (when David died) 530 + 40 years (of David's reign) = 570 years. However, 1 Kings 6:1 states Solomon's 4th year of rule (when he began the Temple building) was 480 years after the Hebrews left Egypt, ie. he began his rule 476 years after the Hebrews left. Therefore there is a contradiction of (570 - 476) 94 years. ------------------------------------------------------- Saul inquired of God, but God did not answer him - 1 Sam 28:6 Saul died because he did not seek guidance from God - 1 Chron 10:13,14 ------------------------------------------------------- Jesse had seven children - 1 Sam 16:10-13 Jesse had eight children - 1 Chron 2:13-15 ------------------------------------------------------- David slays Goliath - 1 Sam 17:4,7,50 Elhanan slays Goliath - 2 Sam 21:19 ------------------------------------------------------- Joram his son, Ahaziah his son, Joash his son, Amaziah his son, Azariah his son, Jotham his son - 1 Chron 3:11,12 Joram the father of Uzziah, and Uzziah the father of Jotham - Matt 1:8,9 ------------------------------------------------------- Asa removes the high places - places - 2 Chron 14:2 Asa did not remove the high places - 1 Kings 15:11-14 ------------------------------------------------------- Uzzah dies at the threshing-floor of Nacon - 2 Samuel 6:6 Uzzah dies at the threshing-floor of Chidon - 1 Chron 13:9 ------------------------------------------------------- David takes 1700 horsemen - 2 Sam 8:4 David takes 7000 horsemen - 1 Chron 18:4 ------------------------------------------------------- David destroys 700 chariots - 2 Sam 10:18 David destroys 7000 chariots - 1 Chron 19:18 ------------------------------------------------------- Satan incites David to number the people - 1 Chron 21:1 God incites David to number the people - 2 Sam 24:1 ------------------------------------------------------- Joab's numbering of the army. 1,100,00 soldiers in Israel; 470,000 soldiers in Judah - 1 Chron 21:5 Joab's numbering of the army. 800,000 soldiers in Israel; 500,000 in Judah - 2 Sam 24:9 -------------------------------------------------------
