Acts 7: A Closer Look - Part Two

Acts 7:1-7 ~ A Closer Look (Part Two)

As we examined the “inconsistencies” between Stephen’s words and the Genesis/Exodus narratives, as well as manuscript differences between the Hebrew scriptures and the Septuagint, we saw how multiple sources lend credence to the historicity of the accounts as recorded. And the “inconsistencies” aren’t that inconsistent after all.

Acts 7:1-8 ~ A Closer Look (Part Two)

Using principles of hermeneutics and textual criticism, we see how inconsistencies in multiple sources serve as evidence of historicity.
