If we read the Bible at face value, without a preconceived bias for finding errors, we will find it to be a coherent, consistent, and relatively easy-to-understand book. Yes, there are difficult pa...
In a word no. The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and God is perfect and never wrong. There is always an answer to a difference. Scripture concurs with scripture. The New Testament confirms the old Testament. Concordances help us to understand some of the more difficult passages. God has 'hidden' some things, for those who truly search out His Word.
The word of God will not contradict itself and has no fault. BUT I will say be very careful with different translations of the Bible. There are some that because they have been translated so much that they change the wording of what was said even revise sentences. I have found a few that way. So be careful when reading so many different translations. The Holy Spirit will lead you in everything you read and if you come across something that does not seem right don't move forward until you have full understanding.
Nothing passing through the hands of man will remain uncorrupted, including ancient texts. When it comes to the Bible, the Jews made strenuous efforts to eliminate all errors in transmission, so we can be confident that the original meanings have been preserved. The only area in the Bible where errors possibly may be found is in the numbers quoted. For example, Rev. 21:16, where the height of the new Jerusalem is 12,000 furlongs or 1,500 miles. It is highly likely that extra zeroes were added in this verse. Another instance is 2 Kings 19:35 where the angel of the Lord slayed 185,000 soldiers. Armies of that day were rarely if ever above 10,000. The Bible contains many examples of numbers ending in one, two, or three zeroes which should be viewed with caution.
