The command to love our enemies is one of the most well-known in the Bible. However, there appear to be passages that teach the opposite. How are we to address these?
If Jesus calls Himself the Way, the Truth, and the Life, why do we see Him lying to His brothers in John 7:2-10? Is this a deadly blow to Christ’s divine identity or are critics missing something vital?
In Matthew 22:39, Jesus mentions a command that is not found in the Ten Commandments. Does this mean Jesus forgot about them or that He felt a need to add a new law altogether?
Paul instructs us in Romans to bless others rather than curse them. But is this in opposition with his instruction to the Galatians and Corinthians?
Does the Bible err when it calls a whale a fish or are the critics merely holding a double standard?
Does Paul tell us to do away with the genealogies in Matthew, Luke, and elsewhere?
Was John the Baptist Elijah, or not? Let’s take a look at this supposed Bible contradiction.
Here’s another supposed Bible contradiction well refuted by The Domain For Truth.
For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Jesus forewarn the apostles of His death and resurrection?
Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

““Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn Him to death, 19 and will hand Him over to the Gentiles to mock and scourge and crucify Him, and on the third day He will be raised up.”” (Matthew 20:18-19)

A claim of Biblical contradiction finds critics asking, “Can God Be Found?” in the face of yes and no scenarios in Luke’s Gospel. They come remarkably close but they’re missing an important caveat.
In a rather strange charge of contradiction, are critics right when they say that Paul is telling the Galatians to juggle their burdens? I think a little context is needed.
In this claim of Biblical contradiction, there’s an alleged disagreement between Paul and James regarding one’s justification in the eyes of God. Are we justified by faith or by works?
Does the jealousy of God, as recorded in Exodus 20:5, contradict Paul’s view of love in 1 Corinthians 13:4?
Does 1 Corinthians 13:5 contradict Biblical judgment? Does the Bible describe two different Gods? In a way, yes, it does.
Does Mark 3:9 contradict Acts 13:39 in regards to the unforgivable sin of blaspheming the Holy Spirit? The solution to this problem is found by defining the concept of forgiveness in the ancient world.
This claim of contradiction comes from a confusion on God’s dwelling place. Does God dwell in light or darkness?
