The bible is one of the few books that can cause serious arguments if not well interpreted. You might think that you understand a verse well only to be ambushed by someone who has a different view of the same context which is convincing. There are two bible verses that have caused serious arguments even in Sunday bible study classes. Here they are.
The first verse is 2 Kings 24: 8 NKJV…”Jehoiachin was eighteen years historic when he grew to become king, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months. His mother’s name used to be Nehushta the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.’‘ In this verse the author says that the boy took over his father when he was eighteen years after he died.
The second verse which contradicts with the above verse is 2 Corinthians 36: 9, ”Jehoiachin was once eight years historic when he grew to be king, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months and ten days. And he did evil in the sight of the Lord.’‘ When you look at this two verses keenly, you will find out that the first author said that the boy was enthroned at the age of eighteen while the second one says eight years, a thing that brings a lot of confusion among many people.
