Nothing is further than the truth than what you just posted above.
Try reading the Hebrew Scriptures a little more closely then compare what is written with the outlook presented in the so-called Greek 'New
Testament' canonical 'scriptures' with an open mind - you might be in for quite a shock & awe experience.
Take a few random samples (otherwise this thread would last a long time) e.g. the list of the 12 Tribes of Yisro'el in the Song of Deborah in Judges
chapter 5 does NOT match the List of the 12 Tribes of Yisroel in the socalled Book of Revelation nor in another list which names other tribes as well.
The List of the 12 Tribes of Yisro’el in the Song of Deborah in Judges chapter 5 are:
Ephraim, Benjamin ,Machir , Zebulun , Issachar ,Barak,Reuben, Gilead ,Dan,Asher ,.Zebulun, Naphtali
(Judah, Joseph and Levi are missing, but Barak, Machir and Ephraim are added)
Genesis 49:3-27 - Jacob’s Sons are
Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Zebulun, Issachar, Dan, Gad, Asher, Naphtali, Joseph, & Benjamin. (Ephraim and Manasseh are missing]
In the NT the list of the 12 Tribes from the Apocalypse of Yohanon the Levite (aka the Book of Revelation) is:
Reuben, Gad,Asher, Naphtali, Manasseh, Simeon, Levi,Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, Benjamin & Judah.
(The tribe of Barak is missing, the tribe of Dan is missing, Ephraim is missing and Machir is missing, and the half tribe of Mannasseh is added)
How can anyone comparing these lists of tribes and half tribes claim that these lists match exactly without contradictory entries?
And this is just ONE example of more than 500 contradictory elements between the 2 Testaments (and many more within the same testament);
See the fake Geneaologies in the 1st canonical Greek gospel (‘according to Matthew’ whoever he was) with his fake list sets of 14 corresponding to
14, the gemmatrial number for ‘David’
Matthew's manipulation of the genealogy is reflected in the fact that he dropped the names of the 3 Judahite kings in Jesus' line: Jehoahaz,
Jehoiakim and Zedekiah [2 Chronicles 36:1-13], doubled the use of the name of both King David in verse 6 and King Jechoniah in verses 11 and 12 in the
beginning of his 2 and 3 sets, and added the name of Tamar's other son Zerah (not in the line of descent) to make his list reflect the total number
of names/ males, and to produce 3 sets of 14 generations for a total of 42 generations from Abraham to 'ho Iesous'
There were 6 generations inclusive between Joram and Jotham - 1 Chron 3:11-12
There were 3 generations inclusive between Joram and Jotham - Matt 1:8-9
Here are some other contradictory curiosities - if you dare to do a close reading of the texts of the OT and NT
R. Yehoshua (Gk Ho Iesous) teaches that Divorce, except for unchastity, is unthinkable Mt.5:32.
Whereas in Mark chapter 10:11-12 'ho Iesous' teaches that Divorce for ANY reason is unthinkable Mk.10:11,12.
in 2 Chronicles 24:20, Zacharias was the son of Jehoida, the priest.
but in Matt 23:25, 'ho Iesous' is saying that Zacharias was the son of Barachias. .
(Note: The name Barachias or Barachiah does not appear in the canonical Hebrew scriptures, but was named by Josephus as a man who was murdered in the
Temple c. 54 CE, AFTER the death of Iesous)
The moneychangers Whips & Chains incident occurred at the end of Jesus’ career. Mt.21:11,12.
The moneychangers incident occurred at the beginning of Jesus’ career. Jn.2:11-15.
YHWH promises Abraham the land of Canaan to live in - Gen 17:8
YHWH did not allow Abraham to live in the promised land - Acts 7:5, Heb 11:8,9,13
Divorce, except for unchastity is unthinkable Mt.5:32.
Divorce for any reason is unthinkable Mk.10:11,12.
Jesus refused point blank to drink the potion offered him and did not touch it at all Mk.15:23.
Jesus sipped the drink offered and then refused to take more. Mt.27:34.
Jesus drank down the whole drink offered him. Jn.19:30.
John knew of Jesus before he baptized him.; Jn.1:28,29.
John knew nothing of Jesus at all. Mt.11:1-3. (‘are you the One to Come or shall we look for Another?)
This kind of thing can go on and on - surely you are conversant enough with the texts to know these things?
If so why would you spout such nonsense as 'there are no contradictions in the bible' when the evidence clearly shows that it is full of them, both
large and small.
You must be VERY careful about what you post on ATS - you're sure to be found out eventually !
