An very interesting and scholarly article on the contradictions and myriad mistakes that are common place in the NT. Food for thought for some.




This verse is part of a prophecy that Isaiah relates to King Ahaz regarding the fate of the two kings threatening Judah at that time and the fate of Judah itself. In the original Hebrew, the verse says that a "young woman" will give birth, not a "virgin" which is an entirely different Hebrew word. The young woman became a virgin only when the Hebrew word was mistranslated into Greek.

Interesting. I've always held that if there is anything to it, Christianity could be written on one side of a napkin, rather than a huge contradictory book of many styles.

Nothing new in that.

The contradictions in the New Testament are so numerous if one compared the God in it to the God of the Tanakh without knowing the Christian connection between the two, they would conclude these were written about two completely different Gods.

The Tanakh does not predict that the Messiah will be born to a virgin. And virgins never gave birth anywhere in the Tanakh. That idea is found in pagan mythology. And to the Jewish mind the idea God would impregnate a woman is unnatural.

Likewise, a tribal line cannot be passed through adoption so Jesus cannot be "son of David" through Joseph. And a tribal line also does not pass through the mother! And even if it did, Mary was not descended of David through Solomon.

Here's a link you should really enjoy.



Paul of Tarsus was so ambitious and so energetic that had he been a business man he could have been the Bill Gates of his day. Although Jesus could have chosen to include Paul among the twelve men who would carry forth his work after his passing, he didn't. And what happened as soon as Jesus left the scene? If we are to believe Paul, Jesus appears to have discovered this huge mistake of his and made up for it by selecting Paul after all! And not just to be one of the twelve, but to be the one apostle who would write more, travel more, and work harder than all twelve of the original apostles put together.

hehe..yes, very compeling, yet amusing stuff. Paul/Saul has to be the biggest charlatan in the whole NT. And there are more than a few others competing for the title
Shocking that more christians don't seem to know about any of this stuff really..

Agreed. Although wouldn't a postage stamp be a bit more appropriate? I mean, why waste paper??

Become a Muslim then, okay forget that a non believing athiest set out to discredit things you want to not believe in. I am sure there are websites that prove you wrong about the different passages in the Bible.
