Even if there is one contradiction, then the Bible is not the Word of God!

Mathematical Contradictions
200 singing men or 245 singing men?
In Ezra Ch. No. 2, Verse No. 65, it says…There were 200 singing men and women – Nehemiah Ch. No. 7, Verse No. 67…‘There were 245 singing men and women.’ Were they 200 - or were they 245 singing men and women?

Context is the same - A mathematical contradiction.

Did Solomon have 2000 baths or 3000 baths?
In the 1st Kings, Ch. No 7, Verse No 26, that…‘In Solomon’s temple, in his molten sea, he had 2000 baths. In 2nd Chronicles, Ch. No 4, Verse No 5, he had 3000 baths. Did he have 2000 baths or did he have 3000 baths?

How can Basha invade Judah, 10 years after his death?

It is mentioned in the First Kings, Ch. No. 15, Verse No. 33, that… ‘Basha, he died in the 26th year of reign of Asa.’ And 2nd Chronicles Ch. No 16, Verse No 1, says that…‘Basha invaded Judah in the 36th years of the reign of Asa.’

How can Basha invade 10 years after his death? It is unscientific.

Was Ahezia 22 or 42 years old when he began to reign?
It is mentioned in the 2nd Kings, Chapter No.8, Verse No.26, it says that… ‘Ahezia, he was 22 years old, when he began to reign.’ 2nd Chronicles, Chapter No. 22, Verse No. 2, says that… ‘He was 42 years old, when he began to reign. Same context.

Was he 22 years old, or was he 42 years old? Mathematical contradiction.

How can the son be 2 years older than his own father?
Further more, in 2nd Chronicles, Chapter No. 21, Verse No. 20, it says that… ‘Jehoram, the father of Ahaziah, he reigned at the age of 32 - and he reigned for 8 years, and he died at the age of 40. Immediately… 2 Chronicles 22:1-2

And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah his youngest son king in his stead: for the band of men that came with the Arabians to the camp had slain all the eldest. So Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned. 2 Forty and two years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Athaliah the daughter of Omri.

How can the son be 2 years older than the father?

Did Michal have no children or 5 sons?
Further more, it is mentioned in the Bible in 2nd Samuel, Chapter No. 6, Verse No 23, that… ‘Michal the daughter of Saul - she had no sons’ – 2nd Samuel’, Chapter 21, Verse No. 8… ‘Michal the daughter of Saul had 5 sons.’ One place it says… ‘No children, no son, no daughter’ - Other place… ‘5 sons.’

How can a man have 2 fathers?
It is mentioned in Gospel of Mathew, Chapter No. 1, Verse No. 16 - it says about the genealogy of Jesus Christ and it says that… Jesus’ father, that is Joseph - his father was Jacob’ And Luke, Chapter No 3, Verse No 23… Jesus’ father… Joseph - his father was Heli, Did Jesus’ father… Joseph, have two fathers ? Was it Heli - or was it Jacob ?

Clear-cut contradiction.
