  • Reconciling truth is easier to do when one approaches a problem with the proper tools
  • Matthew 28:8-10 vs John 20:11-13 – How do we resolve this?
  • Different sections of the Bible have different context (historically), different audiences, different topics and different goals. Each has different authors who feel the need to point out different things in different ways and God is working in different books to accomplish different things. So each is going to be different, but never contradicting of each other.
  • There is no relative truth; it is always absolute.
  • Common Sense is paramount when studying the Bible.
  • Genesis 3:14-15 – We tackle the “Talking Snake” controversy.
  • Bible Contradiction
