I have a question about alleged Biblical Contradictions: The Holy Gospel of St. Matthew said: "
Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, 'And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him who was priced, whom they the children of Israel priced, and gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord directed me
" (Matthew 27:9,10).
Now Jeremiah the prophet did not say this, some scholars said that it was Zechariah the prophet in (Zechariah 11:12). In the Holy Book of Zechariah, he talks about the thirty pieces of silver but what St. Matthew documented is not mentioned verbatim. What is the solution for this one?
Is there contradiction between the Holy Book of I Thessalonians 2:14-16 and the Holy Book of Acts 17:2-3 since the main "opponents" of Paul throughout the Holy Book of Acts are the Jews. They are angry that St Paul is preaching to the "Greeks" and find it unlawful for him to do so. In the Holy Book of Acts, the Greek officials also become opponents because their wives are now becoming followers of Jesus Christ, which they are not happy about. In contrast, however, St Paul in his letter does not mention anything about the Jewish synagogue. Nor does he mention the presence of Jews either among his Christian converts nor anywhere else in town. The people that St Paul converts in Thessalonica are former pagans that had been worshiping idols. Thus, these converts were neither Jews nor God-fearers.
Our Lord seems to have said two contradictory things (underlined):
But he who denies Me before men
will be denied
before the angels of God
" (Luke 12:9).
And anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man,
it will be forgiven
..." (Luke 12:10).
If the Holy Trinity is One..."
And anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but to him who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven
" (Luke 12:10).
