One of the most common questions I get from people when I travel and speak is “Does the Bible have mistakes?” People are concerned about contradictions, problems, and inconsistencies.
I can’t address that issue fully in one blog post, but here is a brief video I did for the RTS “Wisdom Wednesdays” series that at least offers an overview of the issue:

I have greatly appreciated your lectures. Being from Portland, Oregon, I am immersed in wrong ideas about scripture. I am a believer in the inerrancy of scripture.
But, I’ve been listening to a podcast with Robert M Price on the website, Historypodcasters.
Podcast about the history of the papacy brought Price as a guest to speak on the canon. It is podcast #20, if you’d like to listen.
Price seems to want to bring all the Gospels into the 2nd century in order to put them on par with the non-canonical gospels. I’ve never heard you touch on this strategy to discredit the validity of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Placing everything on equal ground.
You’ve been a great resource and have in a small way, strengthened me. Thanks, Guy Wallman
