One of the questions I have is this…
Let’s take a look at Uzzah’s death.The Bible says in 1 Chronicles 13:9 that he was killed at Childon.While 2 Samuel talks about Nachon.
Now,this is supposedly a Bible contradiction.I have seen many apologetics websites try to explain this.
They explain this by saying that Childon is the most likely answer, and Nachon is likely a …later textual corruption.
‘‘Translators are not certain whether to understand “Nachon” as a proper name or an adjective and the manuscriupt tradition varies which is suggesting that something went amiss in the copying process.’’
Now,they do believe that the Bible is the Word of God,but not as a straightforward a magical fax from Heaven.
These apologists can accept there being copying errors in the Bible.
But I do not know if Catholics can accept there being copyist errors in the Bible.And that is what is troubling me.
If Catholics cannot accept copying errors being in the Bible,then what is the Catholic explanation for the Nachon and Childon contradiction problem?
