Q: Did Jesus contradict Himself?
A: In these parallel passages, Jesus issues an urgent command to His 12 students—go and preach the immediacy of the kingdom of heaven to your Jewish brethren. Our English translations contain an apparent discrepancy in what Jesus told them to take with them—were they to take a staff or not? The issue can be cleared up studying the Greek words used for provide or take in the original manuscripts.
How can Christians respond to this apparently blatant contradiction in what Scripture records Jesus as saying? Read the latest of our answers to alleged contradictions in the Bible at Contradictions: A Staff or Not.

Want to learn more about how the Bible is confirmed by the living things we see around us? Join us for a six-week study in “Creation Apologetics and Biology.” You will explore how the amazing complexity found in every cell and the structure of DNA confirm the existence of the Creator. You will also take an in-depth look at how mutations and natural selection actually work. We will also explore cultural misunderstandings of evolutionary icons. Interact with other students from around the world and with Dr. Georgia Purdom to strengthen your faith as you participate in this course.
The next session runs from January 25 through March 7. Registration closes on January 19—so don’t wait!
