How do we wrestle with the a book written by men, inspired by God?
When we approach the bible, we might view it through the lens of our own experiences, upbringing and cultural background. Often it can seem like different accounts of the same event can contradict one another, which can lead to confusion in the mind of the reader.
In this sermon, Neil explores some of these contradictions and encourages us to see the scriptures as God meeting with his people where they were.
We do not need to strive to merge and harmonise all parts of scripture so they say the same thing. In many ways, the differences in accounts between the authors of the bible, is representative of the human nature of God’s people. Ultimately, all scripture and all teaching points to Jesus.
