I read something about the Gospel of Judas. Is this really a missing part of the Bible?

This so-called gospel and numerous others like it, such as the Gospel of Thomas, are considered to be false documents because they teach things at odds with orthodox Christianity. Such books often date to many centuries after the life of Christ and they contain teachings that are clearly influenced by Gnosticism and Greek Neo-platonism. Only…

Does the Bible present two gods? Is the God of the Old Testament more judgmental and the God of the New Testament more about love?

There is a doctrine called the Immutability of God. It means that God does not change. God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. That means the God revealed in the Old and New Testaments is the same God. What has changed is the revelation of who God is and the covenant between God and…

The Bible says that God’s eyes are too pure to look upon sin. So then how can the Holy Spirit be present at all times with people, even believers, who still commit sins?

Habakkuk 1:13a says, “You are of purer eyes than to behold evil, And cannot look on wickedness…” That certainly implies that God cannot look at sin. However, that is not what the verse means. The next sentence reveals that God does look upon sin: “Why do You look on those who deal treacherously…” (Hab 1:13b)….

Don’t the Resurrection accounts hopelessly contradict one another?

The resurrection accounts are very consistent and the supposed contradictions that skeptic raise can be explained. It’s true the accounts are different, but they are also complementary and without contradiction. Unique nuances from each of the Gospel writers contributes to the credibility of each account being true. Only if the four accounts were identical (which…

In Matthew 27, it says that after Jesus’ death, dead people were resurrected and were walking around Jerusalem. Could this really have happened, and why?

As to whether the events of Matthew 27 could have happened, the answer is “of course.” It was a miracle, worked by God. The fact that we know very little about these people, how or why this happened, or what happened to them, does not make the miracle any less real. We can’t prove this…

Were miracle stories crafted after Jesus died, and then included just to make Jesus look like a Jewish messianic figure or wonder worker?

The miracles of Jesus were not added to make Him look like a wonder worker. They are included in the Bible because they really happened. God worked miracles through Jesus to reveal who Jesus was during His earthly ministry and there is strong evidence that the miracles were recorded very near the time they were…

Are there codes in the Bible? How does the Bible differ from the prophecies of Nostradamus?

The Bible is not an ancient codebook. And while there are many literary styles in the Bible, including what the Jews called remezes (hidden meanings), people need to be very careful about looking for hidden codes. All too often, the popular books that claim to have uncoded biblical codes do so with forced reasoning and…
