Bible Contradictions #49: How high were Solomon’s capitals?

During the siege of Jerusalem, Nebuchadnezzar II’s army destroyed Solomon’s temple. For whatever reason the bible waited until this late in the game to take stock of the temple’s inventory. While Neby’s soldiers were carrying off their plunder, both 2 Kings … Continue reading

Bible Contradictions #48: Can women teach in church?

Bible Contradictions #47: Did Enoch die?

I previously tackled the does-everyone-die contradiction. I briefly mentioned Enoch in that post. This one expands on Enoch and raises another contradiction. In order to answer the question of whether or not Enoch died, all we must do is read Hebrews … Continue reading
