  • There are not. The only time these supposed "contradictions" arise is when people do not note the ways Old Testament law was amended through Jesus' redemption, or when scripture is taken out of context.

    For example, the Old Testament law says not to make or wear clothing of mixed fabric/thread. This was not a fashion statement. During the Israelites journey to the Promised Land, their clothes and other possessions needed to last as long as possible. Since different materials become worn at a different rate, having clothes of blended materials meant clothes could essentially wear out faster than they should. Much of the Old Testament law was given to protect and preserve God's people, and that is often what is taken out of context.

  • there are not sometimes someone will say because the different gospels say different things they are contradictions. but really they are just the different writters point of view. If I was an apostile and so were you. we traveled with Jesus and on this trip he met two blind men and healed them and cast demons out of someone. then he preached. well as A nurse I might write the trip down and really concentrate on the healing everything said ad done while you might think the healing was nice but the preaching was more important so you just say he healed and cast out demons the then write much more about the sermon. both of us are right even though we do not write exactly the same thing we are each telling the truth.

  • Gen. 2 vs 18-19 is the account of Adam and Eve after the formation of the world.

    18.The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." 19.Now the LORD God HAD formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.

  • who bears guilt?
    gal 6 2 bear ye one anothers burdens and so fulfill the law of christ
    gal 6 5 for every man shall bear his own burdens


    this actually makes me think of this why would god have innocent man ( "his own son") die for are sins when all he has to do is forgive our sin. God is forgiving loving and full of mercy he doesnt need to kill someone do to this

  • Again Jesus never claimed to be greater than God, God is his Father also. Jesus is in God and God is in Him. Luke 4:8 NIV
    Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.' "

  • John 4: 23.Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
    24.God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."
    25.The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us."
    26.Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to you am he."

  • Because blood was spilled from Adams first children God required blood sacrifices at the temple to atone for sin. Jesus became the ultimate sacrifice to bridge the gap sin had created with Adam and his children.
