The Ahaziah Challenge
I’ve challenged those theists who believe the Bible to be literally and inerrantly true to tell me how old Ahaziah was when he became King.
Firstly, let’s look at the Bible verses.
2 Kings 8:26 Two and twenty years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign.
2 Chronicles 22:2 Forty and two years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign.
It’s a clear contradiction, with even Ultra Apologists LookingUntoJesus admitting there’s an error….but this hasn’t stopped some of the less educated users of Twitter from trying to answer.
First up @jpayne913 hit Google and copied his answer from this page….well, almost did. In his eagerness to prove how right his Bible is (an eagerness that was sorely missing last night when he made himself look like an absolute twat trying to avoid answering) he gave the answer as ’42’, which is not what the explanation he then tried to use says (if you’re interested he claimed that the Bible meant the Ahaziah’s family had been around for 42 years, only he got the 42 mixed up with 22) – CHALLENGE FAILED
Next to take up the challenge was @Dunnam0127 who claimed that it was a deliberate mistake, put in by god to test people!! I’ll give him this, it’s a novel reply! – CHALLENGE FAILED (but creatively)
If anyone else responds I’ll post their answers.
