Apologetics Press :: Alleged Discrepancies

Of all the challenges to a Christian’s faith, surely one of the most troubling in this day and age is skepticism's charge that the Bible is filled with various discrepancies and contradictions. If true, such a charge (which is occurring with increasing frequency) certainly would serve to negate the inerrancy and inspiration of God's Word. It is a simple matter for an unbeliever to hurl a barrage of alleged discrepancies and/or contradictions at a believer, but it is not always a simple task for the believer to respond quickly and effectively. This is the case because many of the so-called discrepancies and contradictions cannot be answered adequately via a “quick wave of the hand,” but instead require in-depth, painstaking research in order to craft a reply that can dismantle each one on a case-by-case basis.

That is exactly what this section of our Web site is intended to do. We have selected samples of the most frequently used (and, generally, the most difficult) alleged Bible discrepancies and/or contradictions, and have performed the in-depth, painstaking research necessary to answer them. And we will continue to do so. Each of our responses will appear in the “Alleged Bible Discrepancies” section of our Web site, which will be updated often. It is our goal to eventually produce a response to all the major charges, and almost all of the minor charges, from unbelievers"—charges that are intended to challenge the inspiration of God’s Word and threaten the faith of Christians. We hope you will visit this section of our site often, and that you will benefit from its contents. If you are searching for a response to a particular alleged discrepancy or contradiction and do not find it here, feel free to contact our offices to request a response. We will do our best to research the matter and provide a logical, well-thought-out, practical answer.
