Contradictions in the Bible?
Author: Dr. Kent HovindMy friend Dave Woetzel (603-938-2695), got an email from a skeptic who posts ontalkorigins.com. Here are Dave's responses. I (Kent Hovind) differ with him on a few minor  points but there is much good info here. I do not think there are any poor KJV translations.Dr. Kent Hovind
Supposed Contradiction # 1:
Gen. 1:11 has the trees made on day 3 before man;Gen. 2:8 has the trees made on day 6 after man.Gen. 1:20 has birds made out of the water on day 5;Gen. 2:19 has birds made out of the ground (after man) on day 6.Gen. 1:24, 25 has the animals made on day 6 before man;Gen. 2:19 has the animals made on day 6 after manExplanation of supposed contradiction:Chapter 1 tells the entire story in the order it happened.Gen. 2:4-6 gives a quick summary of the first five days of creation.Gen. 2:7-25 is describing only the events that took place on day 6 in the Garden of Eden.The trees described in Genesis 2:8 are only in the Garden (the rest of the world is already full of trees from day 3). The purpose of this second creation of trees may have been to let Adam seethat God did have power to create, that He was not just taking credit for the existing world. Notice that the second creation of trees was still on day 6 and was only those trees that are"pleasant to the sight and good for food."The birds created out of the ground on day 6 are only one of each "kind" so that Adam can namethem and select a wife. The rest of the world is full of birds from day 5.Genesis 2:19 is describing only the animals created in the Garden, after man. The purpose of thissecond batch of animals being created was so that Adam could name them (Gen. 2:19) and selecta wife (Gen. 2:20). Adam, not finding a suitable one (God knew he wouldn't), God made Eve(Gen. 2:21-22).There are no contradictions between these two chapters. Chapter 2 only describes in more detailthe events in the Garden of Eden on day 6. If ancient man had written the Bible (as some scofferssay), he would never have made it say that the light was made before the sun! Many ancientcultures worshiped the sun as the source of life. God is light. God made the light before He madethe sun so we could see that He (not the sun) is the source of life.
Supposed contradiction # 2:
How many chariot horses did Solomon have, 40,000 (I Kings 4:26) or 4,000 (II Chron. 9:25)?I Kings 4:26 "And Solomon had forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots, and twelvethousand horsemen."II Chron. 9:25 "And Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelvethousand horsemen;"
Explanation of supposed contradiction:Read the verses carefully and you will see that there is no contradiction. They had chariot teamswith ten horses and ten men per chariot in case you got a flat tire! If he had "four thousand stallsfor horses and chariots" he would need fourty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots. Manymodern versions of the Bible try to "fix" what they thought was a mistake and actually created anerror.
Supposed contradiction # 3:
How many men did David kill, 700 (II Sam. 10:18) or 7,000 (I Chron 19:18)?II Sam. 10:18 "And the Syrians fled before Israel; and David slew the men of seven hundredchariots of the Syrians,"I Chron. 19:18 "But the Syrians fled before Israel; and David slew of the Syrians seven thousandmen which fought in chariots,"Explanation of supposed contradiction:Since they had ten men per chariot both verses are fine.Supposed contradiction # 4:How many died in the plague? Numbers 25:9 "And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand." [24,000]I Cor. 10:8 "Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one daythree and twenty thousand." [23,000]Explanation of supposed contradiction:Obviously 1,000 died the next day! There is no contradiction.Supposed contradiction # 5:How much gold did Solomon get from Ophir, 450 talents or 420?I Kings 9:26-28 "And king Solomon made a navy of ships in Eziongeber, which is beside Eloth,on the shore of the Red sea, in the land of Edom. And Hiram sent in the navy his servants,shipmen that had knowledge of the sea, with the servants of Solomon. And they came to Ophir,and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought it to king Solomon."2 Chronicles 8:17-18 "Then went Solomon to Eziongeber, and to Eloth, at the sea side in the landof Edom. And Huram sent him by the hands of his servants ships, and servants that hadknowledge of the sea; and they went with the servants of Solomon to Ophir, and took thence four hundred and fifty talents of gold, and brought them to king Solomon."Explanation of supposed contradiction:This is talking about two different trips! We can see from other verses that obviously many tripsto Ophir were made! "For the king had at sea a navy of Tharshish with the navy of Hiram: oncein three years came the navy of Tharshish, bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks." 1 Kings 10:22 "Even three thousand talents of gold, of the gold of Ophir, and seventhousand talents of refined silver, to overlay the walls of the houses withal:" 1 Chronicles 29:4Supposed contradiction # 6:
Isn't "Easter" an error in Acts 12:4? Shouldn't pascha be "passover" like every other version has?Acts 12:1-4 1Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of thechurch. 2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.) 4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.The word 'Easter' is the correct word and the KJV is the only version I have seen that gets itright. Read Ex. 12 and Num. 28:16-17 and it will be clear that the Passover came before the daysof unleavened bread.In fact, by translating "pascha" as "passover" in Acts 12:4 modern bibles have inserted anERROR that displays not only their lack of knowledge of Greek in context, but even more their lack of knowledge of ENGLISH!You see, the man who INVENTS a particular word is the world's foremost authority on thatword. In this case, the word "passover" was INVENTED by William Tyndale. Thus, WilliamTyndale knew the CORRECT definition of "passover" since he INVENTED the word "passover"in the first place.Singular to relate, William Tyndale did NOT use the word HE INVENTED - "passover" - in Acts12:4. Why? Why did William Tyndale not use the word HE INVENTED in Acts 12:4? Because,as Dr. Thomas Holland demonstrated, the days of unleavened bread come AFTER Passover.That's ONE reason Tyndale did not employ the word HE INVENTED in Acts 12:4. The secondreason, of course, is because Herod was looking forward to the pagan feast of Ishtar, from whichthe word "Easter" is derived, and so Tyndale, who INVENTED the word "passover" did NOTuse the word "passover" in Acts 12:4 in HIS OWN TRANSLATION.In summary, had modern translators bothered to learn ENGLISH etymology, they would havediscovered that the INVENTOR of the word "passover" declined to use the word HEINVENTED in this verse, because the INVENTOR of the word "passover" did not want toMISTRANSLATE the passage, as modern bibles have done.An article which appeared in The Trinitarian Bible Society Quarterly Record states:"When Tyndale applied his talents to the translation of the New Testament from Greek intoEnglish, he was not satisfied with the use of a completely foreign word, and decided to take intoaccount the fact that the season of the passover was known generally to English people as 'easter'... Tyndale has ester or easter fourteen times, ester-lambe eleven times, esterfest once, and paschall lambe three times. When he began his translation of the Pentateuch, he was again facedwith the problem in Exodus 12:11 and twenty-one other places, and no doubt recognizing theeaster in this context would be an anachronism he coined a new word, passover and used itconsistently in all twenty-two places. It is, therefore, to Tyndale that our language is indebted for this meaningful and appropriate word."Some points to ponder about Easter:The Passover was at night on the 14th day of April.The seven days of unleavened bread always followed the Passover.The pagan festival of Astart or Ishtar (Easter) was always held late in April to celebrate the earthregenerating itself after winter. That is why rabbits (Playboy) and eggs, symbols of fertility areused.The feast days are never called the Passover anywhere in scripture.
