Many questions arise when one considers the Bible. For example, “Why are there contradictions?” “If this is really the Word of God, why isn’t it clearer?” and “Why are we putting so much trust in these books when they’re not even the originals, but copies of copies of copies?” These are valid questions that many people ask. They’re also questions that many get hung up on. We get it. That’s why we wanted to go to a scholar for the last two weeks to help us work through them. Dr. Andreas Köstenberger joins us this week to help us think critically about these skeptical questions. You can listen to our first conversation with Andreas here.
