What if there were verses that were really true, historical, God-breathed, and others that snuck in there under the radar, but don’t really belong?
Of course, plenty of people already think that is the reality, that pieces or chunks of the Bible aren’t really reliable. I don’t see an end in sight to the inerrancy debate. I have been clung to inerrancy and written about my definition of what it means to be inerrant here before.
But today, I am not so sure of myself.
You see, I think I found a mistake in my Bible.
I think I found a mistake. It didn’t take much investigation, or a magnifying glass, or parsing words in their original language. It was pretty easy actually. The offending verse comes from Jesus’ own mouth. I am convinced that Jesus had to have been wrong,
What mistake could I have possibly found that would send my whole view of scripture into a tailspin?
