AND WHAT ABOUT CONTRADICTIONS, DID THEY GUESS? Katherine T. Phan, Christian Post:
A new Bible that arranges Scripture according to when the events occurred – as opposed to when it was written – has re-opened debate in the Christian blogosphere over whether chronological ordering leads to clarity or confusion.
Bible publishing giant Thomas Nelson is set to debut the Chronological Study Bible next month, marketing the book as the “only study Bible that presents the text of the New King James Version in chronological order”.
In the edition, well-known books in the Bible like the Gospels, Psalms and the Epistles of Apostle Paul are chopped up and re-woven with other texts to fit the historical timeline.
The accounts of Jesus’ life as detailed in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are combined into one narrative based on the order of events found in Mark.
