_The Peshitta Holy Bible_ translated by David Bauscher
"Do you believe Scripture is infallible?"
No. Therein are contradictions, and therein are evolving views of the nature of the afterlife, and the nature of God, and the nature of God's requirements of humans (e.g., Jesus: 'you have heard.... But I say....').

"what appears to be contradiction in Scripture isn't"
Some of the contradictions below are resolvable by translating correctly Jesus' genealogy in Matthew from the original Aramaic, and by rejecting the Massoretic's corrupted reading and going with the reading had by the Aramaic Peshitta OT, and sometimes also the reading had by the LXX, Samaritan Pentateuch, or Dead Sea Scrolls. But other contradictions still remain.
How would you resolve the alleged-contradictions mentioned below?
2. The Bible stands or falls as a whole. If a major newspaper were routinely discovered to contain errors, it would be quickly discredited. It would make no difference to say, “All the errors are confined to page three.” For a paper to be reliable in any of its parts, it must be factual throughout. In the same way, if the Bible is inaccurate when it speaks of geology, why should its theology be trusted? It is either a trustworthy document, or it is not.
