I found these on the internet today, a few contradictions in the Bible, ( or are they? ) The first one is a simple number contradiction. One: The amount of horses Sollomon had magically changed? in 2 Chronicles chap 9:25 sollomon had 4 thousand horses in First Kings Chap 4:26 sollomon had 40 thousand stores of horses. Was this a typo on someone's part? or is there more to it? Two: Maybe these are two instances?. first satan instagited David take a count on the jews. but than it says that God directed him against Israel, so which is it? 1 Chronicles Chap 21: 1 Satan tells him to 2 Samual Chap 24: 1 God tells him to Three: I guess these are obviously two different times, again, I'm only quoting these contradictions from the internet. 1 samuel chap 28: 6 when saul inquired of the lord, he did not answer, 1 chronicles chap 10:14 he saul did not inquire of the lord therefor God killed him. Four: Another one where the number is different 1 king chap 7: (2,000) baths 2 chronicles chap 4: (3,000) baths? Five: Jesus slip of the tongue? or simple language semantics ? John 17:12 While I was with them, I kept and preserved them in Your Name [[b]in the knowledge and worship of You]. Those You have given Me I guarded and protected, and not one of them has perished or is lost except the son of perdition [Judas Iscariot john 18:9 Thus what He had said was fulfilled and verified, Of those whom You have given Me, I have not lost even one.
