Error on the bible.
April 17, 2013 5:23am CST
Since the bible have some of authors, it's make some differentiation when writing down "the word of God". These errors, usually happen when verses told about something. Don't know whether these errors from the authors when they wrote down "the word of God" (maybe some of them based on hearsay from other not heard directly from Jesus) or from the Jesus himself. Do you ever notice about them?

Where does it talk about horns on Moses as the verse I looked up didn't mention horns at all. This is the first time I have ever heard this description used. I have read that there are 101 contradictions. Some that were listed I could tell were listed because of the ignorance of the one who was suppose to have found them. According to Joseph Smith, I understand that there are suppose to be 400 errors. The ones I bothered to look up didn't change the way I worshiped God so it doesn't matter to me about the supposed mistakes.

if you notice earlier depictions-pictures, sculptures- of moses, he is shown as someone having horns. when they finally realized this error of st.jerome in his translations, they removed the horns. look it up in old art. you'll see what i'm talking about. i am not a mormon (you mentioned joseph smith), and even if i am, i would know that the bible is just a collection of stories authored by so many writers and compiled same as aesop's fables or arabian nights, or canterbury tales. @john: hell is subjective too.

Hell has been changed to mean where there is fire but the original meaning is the grave where everybody is for the moment until Christ returns. When God pour down fire upon the wicked hell will be thrown in with it meaning there will be no more graves after the earth has been cleansed (Rev. 20:14.

I see no error at all......NO mistake at all Matthew describes Joseph's descendants.... Remember the seed of Joseph did not get Mary pregnant...(But that is the way it was done back then) And since Jesus was born of the virgin Mary, according to Jewish law They needed proof that Jesus was the rightful descendant of David and qualify to sit on the throne...... When Joseph married Mary he became the son of Heli by marriage (today he would be called his son-in-law) So the descendants listed in Luke are Mary's. (Mary's ancestry is given in her husband's name.)That is the way it was done back then.... Their is no record that Mary had any brothers to inherit her fathers rights, and possessions. So because Joseph was the Husband of Mary he became the heir to Heli. Both genealogies had to be recorded to establish Christ's right to rule on David's throne. Joseph's genealogy shows that Christ was a legal descendant of Jeconiah and thus legally could not sit on the throne of David in the nation Judah by inheriting the right solely through Joseph. Further, the genealogies prove the virgin birth: The curse on Jeconiah's line would have passed on to Christ if He were Joseph's natural son, but He was not—He was the Son of God the Father, begotten by the Holy Spirit. Jesus was Mary's son descended from Nathan. Jesus can inherit rule over Judah because of Mary's marriage to Joseph, whose genealogy shows he was Heli's son, by marrage Is their anything else that you think is a error or mistake.... The Holy Bible is the word of God..their are no errors or mistakes in it.......................

hello. in addition to rog's response, we should be reminded that the original text used in the bible is not english. somewhere sometime, these texts were translated into a language understood by a certain group. and these translations were not that perfect since there are so many interpretations on a certain verse. take for exampke the 'horned moses' when it actually meant two rays of light emanating from his forehead.

How about these verses? I Kings 7:26 (It was a handbreadth [d] in thickness, and its rim was like the rim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It held two thousand baths.) and II Chron 4:5 (It was a handbreadth [e] in thickness, and its rim was like the rim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It held three thousand baths.)

@wapewe Come on, you know I've already answered this elsewhere. The literal translation of II Chron 4:5 is "It RECEIVED and held three thousand bäths", that is, it could, when filled to the brim, hold three thousand bäths, whereas that of 1 Kings 7:26 is simply "It held two thousand bäths", that is, in everyday use it contained two thousand bäths The two passages are talking about different things.

Hi, There shall be errors in every place if one look for it. This is not a perfect world and imperfections do abound, it only take a critical and observant mind to spot them. However, if one is bent on looking for perfection, he shall end up in disappointment and bitterness. It is better to make out what can be found to be good out of the bad things we encounter in our daily life, it can produce miracles in my experience.
