What Should We Make of the Discrepancies Found in the Bible? 1 Chronicles 2:13-15 Skeptics often charge that the Bible’s historical books hopelessly contradict each other.

Take, for example, 1 Chronicles 2:13-15, which states that Jesse had seven sons, while 1 Samuel 17:12 indicates Jesse had...
Building Past Failure

Many of the passages that we will study this month are occupied with the condition of the heart and the planting of the Gospel in ready soil (Matt. 13:18-30, 36-43; 15:1-20 ). The Bible, of course, has much to say on this...
