Some bible believers say anything inspired by God cannot have any mistakes, not even grammatical errors.
Others profess that inerrancy speaks of truthfulness, not the degree of precision with which events are reported; so they say inerrancy allows for idiomatic language, rounded measurements, free quotations, even hyperbole.
How would you define "inerrancy"? What does it mean to say the bible in inerrant?
Yes! I think that the best way to answer this is this way:
“The Bible is full of Contradictions”
Ex: To say that Author Ash is the greatest tennis player in the history of the game and then say that Author Ash is not the greatest player in the game is a contradiction.
Ex: There is precisely one God and there are precisely three divine persons.
Ex: There is no contradiction when Christians say “that Christ is fully human and fully divine.
Matthew uses a common rabbinical interpretive practice known as gezerah shawah also known as (pearl-stringing). This involves stringing together several passages of
Scripture, based on similar vocabulary, to arrive at a reading which synthesizes the passages and treats them as a literary unit.
Thanks for weighing in, but you've got to take this a little slower...
How does gezerah shawah explain what appears to be an erroneous attribution of Zechariah's prophecy to Jeremiah?
Is there a simpler than seminary-level resource I can access to learn about this interpretive practice?
