Three years ago, the Gospel Coalition held a regional conference called Clarus, which had been titled, “Scripture: God Speaks.” During the Q&A time, New Testament pastor-scholar, Greg Beale, answered a question about supposed contradictions in the bible. He gave the best answer that I have ever come across on this subject. For many believers in Christ, the bible contains errors or contradictions, which render it less than trustworthy in their eyes. There are many respected pastor-scholars in Evangelical seminaries throughout the US and the world, who advance the notion that the bible contains unsolvable contradictions. This remains one of the most common objections to the truthfulness or inerrancy of scripture.
