Keywords: Intentional and translation-related contradictions in the Bible; Verbal Inspiration; Freedom to resolve contradictions

Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this article is to make the faithful aware that the Old and New Testaments are not free from contradictions resulting both from within as well as from ancient languages and also from multitude of interpretations of various Christian theologies and, finally, from a large number of known variants of the Bible's core text.If the Holy Scriptures are verbally inspired then contradictions contained in them may not be incidental, but they constitute their immanent part while the Christians’ task is to resolve them individually. Therefore, removal of the contradictions, unless they result from obvious translation errors, becomes unnecessary, and they, as such, should support faith in seeking comprehension and deepen it.
