He was appearing to them �during forty days� (Acts 1:3), and �charged them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise . . . �(Acts 1:4).


    Contradiction #90

    To whom did the Midianites sell Joseph?

    (a) �To the Ishmaelites� (Genesis 37:28).

    (b) �To Potiphar, an officer of Pharoah� (Genesis 37:36).


    Contradiction #91

    Who brought Joseph to Egypt?

    (a) The Ishmaelites bought Joseph and then �took Joseph to Egypt� (Genesis 37:28).

    (b) �The Midianites had sold him in Egypt� (Genesis 37:36).

    (c) Joseph said to his brothers �I am your brother, Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt� (Genesis 45:4).


    Contradiction #92

    Does God change his mind?

    (a) Yes. The word of the Lord came to Samuel: �I repent that I have made Saul King . . .� (1 Samuel 15:10 to 11).

    (b) No. God �will not lie or repent; for he is not a man, that he should repent� (1 Samuel 15:29).

    (c) Yes. �And the Lord repented that he had made Saul King over Israel� (1 Samuel 15:35). Notice that the above three quotes are all from the same chapter of the same book! In addition, the Bible shows that God repented on several other occasions:

    i. The Lord was sorry that he made man� (Genesis 6:6). � I am sorry that I have made them� (Genesis 6:7)

    ii.�And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do to his people� (Exodus 32:14)

    iii.(Lots of other such references).


    Contradiction #93

    The Bible says that for each miracle Moses and Aaron demonstrated the same by their secret arts. Then comes the following feat:
    (a) Moses and Aaron converted all the available water into blood (Exodus 7:20-21).

    (b) The magicians did the same (Exodus 7:22). This is impossible, since there would have been no water left to convert into blood.


    Contradiction #94

    Who killed Goliath?

    (a) David (1 Samuel 17:23, 50).

    (b) Elhanan (2 Samuel 21:19).


    Contradiction #95

    Who killed Saul?

    (a) �Saul took his own sword and fell upon it. . . . Thus Saul died... (1 Samuel 31:4-6).

    (b) An Amalekite slew him (2 Samuel 1:1-16).


    Contradiction #96

    Does every man sin?

    (a) Yes. �There is no man who does not sin� (1 Kings 8:46; see also 2 Chronicles 6:36; Proverbs 20:9; Ecclesiastes 7:20; and 1 John 1:8-10).

    (b) No. True Christians cannot possibly sin, because they are the children of God.

    Every one who believes that Jesus is the Christ is a child of God . . (1 John 5:1).

    �We should be called children of God; and so we are� (1 John 3:1).

    �He who loves is born of God� (1 John 4:7).

    �No one born of God commits sin; for God�s nature abides in him, and he cannot sin because he is born of God� (1 John 3:9).

    (c) But, then again, Yes!

    �If we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us� (1 John 1:8).


    Contradiction #97

    Who will bear whose burden?

    (a) �Bear one another�s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ� (Galatians 6:2).

    (b) �Each man will have to bear his own load� (Galatians 6:5).


    Contradiction #98

    How many disciples did Jesus appear to after his resurrection?

    (a) Twelve (1 Corinthians 15:5).

    (b) Eleven (Matthew 27:3-5 and Acts 1:9-26, see also Matthew 28:16; Mark 16:14 footnote; Luke 24:9; Luke 24:33).


    Contradiction #99

    Where was Jesus three days after his baptism?

    (a) After his baptism, �the spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days . . . (Mark 1:12-13).

    (b) Next day after the baptism, Jesus selected two disciples. Second day: Jesus went to Galilee � two more disciples. Third day: Jesus was at a wedding feast in Cana in Galilee (see John 1:35; 1:43; 2:1-11).


    Contradiction #100

    Was baby Jesus�s life threatened in Jerusalem?

    (a) Yes, so Joseph fled with him to Egypt and stayed there until Herod died (Matthew 2:13 - 23).

    (b) No. The family fled nowhere. They calmly presented the child at the Jerusalem temple according to the Jewish customs and returned to Galilee (Luke 2:21-40).


    Contradiction #101

    When Jesus walked on water how did the disciples respond?

    (a) They worshipped him, saying, �Truly you are the Son of God� (Matthew 14:33).

    (b) �They were utterly astounded, for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened� (Mark 6:51-52).

    A List Of Biblical Contradictions

    A List of Biblical Contradictions (1992)

    Jim Meritt

    [Editor's note: Not everyone will agree that all of the listed "contradictions" are, in fact, contradictions. It is therefore up to the reader to use his/her own intelligence and decide for himself/herself what s/he can and will accept as a contradiction. In other words, you need not agree with what Meritt sees as a problem or contradiction. It should be kept in mind, however, that a perfect, omnipotent, and omniscient god would reasonably be expected to have done a better job of it than the Bible had such a god inspired a book. In any case, lists such as this can be useful in serving as a springboard for further study. For more, see also: Biblical Errancy and Biblical Criticism.]

    All of my statements, past, present and future express solely my opinions and/or beliefs and do not in any way represent those of any of my employer's unless such is specifically stated in the content of the text. (Jim Merrit)
    Table of Contents

    Introduction to Contradictions

    The Bible is riddled with repetitions and contradictions, things that the Bible bangers would be quick to point out in anything that they want to criticize. For instance, Genesis 1 and 2 disagree about the order in which things are created, and how satisfied God is about the results of his labors. The flood story is really two interwoven stories that contradict each other on how many of each kind of animal are to be brought into the Ark--is it one pair each or seven pairs each of the "clean" ones? The Gospel of John disagrees with the other three Gospels on the activities of Jesus Christ (how long had he stayed in Jerusalem--a couple of days or a whole year?) and all four Gospels contradict each other on the details of Jesus Christ's last moments and resurrection. The Gospels of Matthew and Luke contradict each other on the genealogy of Jesus Christ's father; though both agree that Joseph was not his real father. Repetitions and contradictions are understandable for a hodgepodge collection of documents, but not for some carefully constructed treatise, reflecting a well-thought-out plan.
    Of the various methods I've seen to "explain" these:
    1. "That is to be taken metaphorically." In other words, what is written is not what is meant. I find this entertaining, especially for those who decide what ISN'T to be taken as other than the absolute WORD OF GOD--which just happens to agree with the particular thing they happen to want...
    2. "There was more there than...." This is used when one verse says "there was a" and another says "there was b," so they decide there was "a" AND "b"--which is said nowhere. This makes them happy, since it doesn't say there WASN'T "a+b." But it doesn't say there was "a+b+little green martians." This is often the same crowd that insists theirs is the ONLY possible interpretation (i.e., only "a") and the only way. I find it entertaining they they don't mind adding to verses.
    3. "It has to be understood in context." I find this amusing because it comes from the same crowd that likes to push likewise extracted verses that support their particular view. Often it is just one of the verses in the contradictory set which is supposed to be taken as THE TRUTH when, if you add more to it, it suddenly becomes "out of context." How many of you have gotten JUST John 3:16 (taken out of all context) thrown at you?
    4. "There was just a copying/writing error." This is sometimes called a "transcription error," as in where one number was meant and an incorrect one was copied down. Or what was "quoted" wasn't really what was said, but just what the author thought was said. And that's right--I'm not disagreeing with events, I'm disagreeing with what is WRITTEN. Which is apparently agreed that it is incorrect. This is an amusing misdirection to the problem that the Bible itself is wrong.
    5. "That is a miracle." Naturally. That is why it is stated as fact.
    6. "God works in mysterious ways." A useful dodge when the speaker doesn't understand the conflict between what the Bible SAYS and what they WISH it said.


    God good to all, or just a few?

    PSA 145:9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
    JER 13:14 And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, saith the LORD: I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them.
    [Editor's note: Some readers have raised an objection to this alleged contradiction. They point out that PSA 145:20 states that The Lord keeps all who love Him, but that He will destroy the wicked. In other words, some see no contradiction between "The Lord is good to all" and JER 13:14. Others contend, however, that even if the Lord destroys the wicked he could do so with compassion, pity, and mercy. Further, there are biblical examples that indicate that the Lord is not necessarily "good" or merciful--even to those who are not wicked. One such example is Job. As one reader points out, "If Psalm 145:9 was not a contradiction of Psalm 145:20 or Jeremiah 13:14, it would read something like this: "The LORD is good to all, except the wicked: and his tender mercies are over all his works, except when He is punishing the wicked." In any case, the idea that the Lord is good and merciful is contradicted by countless examples in the Bible where God orders the destruction of infants, personally kills David's infant child, etc.]

    War or Peace?

    EXO 15:3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
    ROM 15:33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.

    Who is the father of Joseph?

    MAT 1:16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
    LUK 3:23 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli.

    Who was at the Empty Tomb? Is it:

    MAT 28:1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
    MAR 16:1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
    JOH 20:1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

    Is Jesus equal to or lesser than?

    JOH 10:30 I and my Father are one.
    JOH 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

    Which first--beasts or man?

    GEN 1:25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
    GEN 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
    GEN 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
    GEN 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

    How many stalls and horsemen?

    1KI 4:26 And Solomon had forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen.
    2CH 9:25 And Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen; whom he bestowed in the chariot cities, and with the king at Jerusalem.

    Is it folly to be wise or not?

    PRO 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
    ECC 1:18 For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
    1CO 1:19: "For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."

    Human vs. ghostly impregnation

    ACT 2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
    MAT 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

    The sins of the father

    ISA 14:21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.
    DEU 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

    Rabbits do not chew their cud

    LEV 11:6 And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
    "Gerah," the term which appears in the MT means (chewed) cud, and also perhaps grain, or berry (also a 20th of a sheckel, but I think that we can agree that that is irrelevant here). It does *not* mean dung, and there is a perfectly adequate Hebrew word for that, which could have been used. Furthermore, the phrase translated "chew the cud" in the KJV is more exactly "bring up the cud." Rabbits do not bring up anything; they let it go all the way through, then eat it again. The description given in Leviticus is inaccurate, and that's that. Rabbits do eat their own dung; they do not bring anything up and chew on it.

    Snails do not melt

    PSA 58:8 As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.

    Fowl from waters or ground?

    GEN 1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
    GEN 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
    GEN 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

    Odd genetics

    GEN 30:39 And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth cattle ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.

    The shape of the earth

    ISA 40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
    MAT 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
    Astronomical bodies are spherical, and you cannot see the entire exterior surface from anyplace. The kingdoms of Egypt, China, Greece, Crete, sections of Asia Minor, India, Maya (in Mexico), Carthage (North Africa), Rome (Italy), Korea, and other settlements from these kingdoms of the world were widely distributed.

    Snakes, while built low, do not eat dirt

    GEN 3:14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

    Earth supported?

    JOB 26:7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
    JOB 38:4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
    Heaven supported too

    JOB 26:11 The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

    The hydrological cycle

    ECC 1:7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
    JOB 38:22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
    Storehouses are not part of the cycle

    Order of creation

    Here is the order in the first (Genesis 1), the Priestly tradition:
    Day 1: Sky, Earth, light
    Day 2: Water, both in ocean basins and above the sky(!)
    Day 3: Plants
    Day 4: Sun, Moon, stars (as calendrical and navigational aids)
    Day 5: Sea monsters (whales), fish, birds, land animals, creepy-crawlies (reptiles, insects, etc.)
    Day 6: Humans (apparently both sexes at the same time)
    Day 7: Nothing (the Gods took the first day off anyone ever did)
    Note that there are "days," "evenings," and "mornings" before the Sun was created. Here, the Deity is referred to as "Elohim," which is a plural, thus the literal translation, "the Gods." In this tale, the Gods seem satisfied with what they have done, saying after each step that "it was good."
    The second one (Genesis 2), the Yahwist tradition, goes:
    Earth and heavens (misty)
    Adam, the first man (on a desolate Earth)
    Eve, the first woman (from Adam's rib)

    How orderly were things created?
    #1: Step-by-step. The only discrepancy is that there is no Sun or Moon or stars on the first three "days."
    #2: God fixes things up as he goes. The first man is lonely, and is not satisfied with animals. God finally creates a woman for him. (funny thing that an omniscient god would forget things)

    How satisfied with creation was he?
    #1: God says "it was good" after each of his labors, and rests on the seventh day, evidently very satisfied.
    #2: God has to fix up his creation as he goes, and he would certainly not be very satisfied with the disobedience of that primordial couple. (funny thing that an omniscient god would forget things)

    Moses' personality

    NUM 12:3: "Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the fact of the earth."
    NUM 31:14, 17, 18: "And Moses was wroth...And Moses said unto them, "Have ye saved all the women alive? ... Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman, ... But all the women children ... keep alive for yourselves."

    Righteous live?

    PSA 92:12: "The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree."
    ISA 57 "The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart."

    ACT 1:18: "Now this man (Judas) purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out."
    MAT 27:5-7: "And he (Judas) cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. And the chief priests...bought with them the potter's field."

    Jesus' first sermon plain or mount?

    MAT 5:1,2: "And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying...."

    LUK 6:17,20: "And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people...came to hear him.. And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples and said..."

    Jesus' last words

    MAT 27:46,50: "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, eli, lama sabachthani?" that is to say, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" ...Jesus, when he cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost."
    LUK 23:46: "And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, "Father, unto thy hands I commend my spirit:" and having said thus, he gave up the ghost."
    JOH 19:30: "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished:" and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost."

    Years of famine

    II SAMUEL 24:13: So God came to David, and told him, and said unto him, shall SEVEN YEARS OF FAMINE come unto thee in thy land? or will thou flee three months before thine enemies, while they pursue. thee?

    SO God came to David, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Choose thee. Either THREE YEARS OF FAMINE or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee;

    Moved David to anger?

    II SAMUEL 24: And again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah.
    I CHRONICLES 21: And SATAN stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.


    In two places in the New Testament the genealogy of Jesus son of Mary is mentioned. MAT 1:6-16 and LUK 3:23-31. Each gives the ancestors of Joseph the CLAIMED husband of Mary and Step father of Jesus. The first one starts from Abraham(verse 2) all the way down to Jesus. The second one from Jesus all the way back to Adam. The only common name to these two lists between David and Jesus is JOSEPH, How can this be true? and also How can Jesus have a genealogy when all Muslims and most Christians believe that Jesus had/has no father.

    God be seen?

    EXO 24:9,10; AMO 9:1; GEN 26:2; and JOH 14:9
    God CAN be seen:
    "And I will take away my hand, and thou shalt see my backparts." (EXO 33:23)

    God CANNOT be seen:
    "No man hath seen God at any time." (JOH 1:18)
    "And he said, Thou canst not see my face; for there shall no man see me and live." (EXO 33:20)
    "Whom no man hath seen nor can see." (1TIM 6:16)


    "I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy." (JER 13:14) "Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not, but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling."
    "The Lord is very pitiful and of tender mercy." (JAS 5:11)
    "For his mercy endureth forever." (1CH 16:34)
    "The Lord is good to all, and his tender mercies are over all his works." (PSA 145:9)
    "God is love." (1JO 4:16)


    "And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham." (GEN 22:1)
    "Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God; for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man." (JAS 1:13)

    Judas died how?

    "And he cast down the pieces of silver into the temple and departed, and went out and hanged himself." (MAT 27:5)
    "And falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all of his bowels gushed out." (ACT 1:18)

    Ascend to heaven

    "And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven." (2KI 2:11)
    "No man hath ascended up to heaven but he that came down from heaven, ... the Son of Man." (JOH 3:13)

    What was Jesus' prediction regarding Peter's denial?

    Before the cock crow - MAT 26:34
    Before the cock crow twice - MAR 14:30

    How many times did the cock crow?

    MAR 14:72 And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.
    MAT 26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
    MAT 26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
    LUK 22:60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
    LUK 22:61 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
    JOH 13:38 Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, still thou hast denied me thrice.
    JOH 18:27 Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.

    Depends where you look; MAT 12:40 gives Jesus prophesying that he will spend "three days and three nights in the heart of the earth," and MAR 10:34 has "after three days (meta treis emeras) he will rise again." As far as I can see from a quick look, the prophecies have "after three days," but the post-Resurrection narratives have "on the third day."
