It is difficult to accept that contradictions can exist in the Bible, yet this is one of them. Raymond E. Brown says, in An Introduction to the New Testament, page 114, that Luke's account of the death of Judas in Acts 1:18-19 is scarcely reconcilable with that in Matthew 27:3-10. If they can not be reconciled then one or both accounts are not really ...

Raymond E. Brown says, in An Introduction to the New Testament, page 236, that while Luke's list may be less classically monarchical than Matthew's, there is little likelihood that either is strictly historical. On this view, there is no mistake and no misunderstanding of Jewish genealogies. Brown notes that many try to reconcile the two very different ...

With Mark, in order to see the context for this promise of Jesus, we need to go back just one verse, to Mark 10:28: Mark 10:28: Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. By 70 CE, when Mark is now believed to have been written, its author knew that there were followers who had left their "houses, brethren, sisters, ...

There is a suggestion that the first verse you quote is Paul quoting the thoughts / writings of the Corinithians. Paul goes on to refute them - hence the apparent contradiction. For more info on this "rhetorical" interpretation of this passage and a couple of others, you can take a look at the book "Women and worship at Corinth - Paul's Rhetorical ...

Paul does not forbid women to speak; rather, this is the position held by some Corinthians and it is one of several matters causing division between the believers. After an extended discourse on speaking in tongues [14:33], Paul diverts briefly to another sub-theme [the main theme being division], which has been raised by some Corinthians: the role of women ...

Christians who believe in the inerrancy or infallibility of the Bible argue that these two accounts are not contradictory: that Jesus met his followers in both Jerusalem and Galilee after his resurrection. Such an argument first requires establishing that there was a lengthy period of time between the resurrection and the ascension, and that Luke 24 is a ...

The explanation for the discrepancy is in the history of the gospels. The consensus of modern scholars is that the Gospels of Matthew and Luke were substantially based on Mark and that John was also loosely based on Luke, with some material taken direct from Mark. This in itself would not result in a difference, except that Mark originally ended at verse ...

I read your question and it seems as if you are saying that because we are under grace, the law does not matter. I actually used to believe this. That is how people justify what I would call "human or secular" behavior. The person that is under grace (NT) got there because of the law (OT). God gave us a way out of the law, because he knew we could not keep ...

If you are asking about condemning as public disapprove of, then of course! Lev 18:22-23 "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination." You may be angry that I quoted an old testament verse but hear me out. Doesn't it say in Malachi 3:6 "For I am the LORD, I do not change." Therefore the Old Testament teaching of ...
