A List of Alleged Contradictions in the Gospels

by Max Andrews

I’ve provided a list of alleged contradictions in the New Testament from a file I’ve found floating around the internet. This is so you know what someone is talking about when this comes up in discussion. Some of them had explanations that were blatantly obvious and weren’t problematic at all but I’ve saved some interesting one’s for your consideration. Even so, some of these are a bit easy to harmonize. However, don’t be so quick to lay down a Christian trump card.  Carefully consider what’s going on and work through it.  I do affirm biblical inerrancy and I would recommend several books to address the issues of such alleged contradictions:

Mike Licona’s The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach

Ed Komoszewski, M. James Sawyer, and Dan Wallace’s Reinventing Jesus

Craig Blomberg’s The Historical Reliability of the Gospels
