Provable Errors in the NIV

I. Jesus said that "the scripture cannot be broken" (Joh 10:35).

1. If a book claiming to be the scripture contains internal contradictions, it is a broken book which is not consistent with itself.

2. Such a book is therefore not scripture.

II. The NIV has at least two provable errors which are internal contradictions, which is proof that the NIV is not the inspired, infallible, and preserved word of God.

IV. Provable error #2: Exo 12:40

1. "Now the length of time the Israelite people lived in Egypt was 430 years." (Exo 12:40, NIV)

2. It is a fact that the Israelites did not live in Egypt for 430 years, but for only 215 years.

A. Abraham and his descendants sojourned in Canaan and Egypt for 430 years from the time that the promise was made to Abraham until the giving of the law of Moses on Mount Sinai after the exodus.

B. "Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect." (Gal 3:16-17, KJV)

3. A careful examination of Bible chronology will show that the Abraham left Ur and entered Canaan in 1963 BC (2083 years after Creation), and Jacob left Canaan and entered Egypt 215 years later in 1748 BC (2298 years after Creation).

A. Israel dwelt in Egypt for another 215 years until the giving of the law of Moses after their exodus from Egypt 430 years after the promise was made to Abraham (Gal 3:16-17).

B. Philip Mauro proves this in his book, The Wonders of Bible Chronology, pp. 34-37.

4. The NIV therefore has a provable, internal contradiction which demands that it cannot be the preserved word of God.

5. The KJV has no such contradiction. Observe Exo 12:40 is carefully worded in the KJV.

A. "Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years." (Exo 12:40, KJV)

B. The KJV doesn't say that the children of Israel dwelt in Egypt for 430 years.

C. It says that the sojourning of the children of Israel was 430 years.

D. Their sojourning began with Abraham when he left Ur and entered Canaan as a stranger, and it ended when the nation of Israel entered Canaan after the exodus to possess it.

E. The clause enclosed by commas, "who dwelt in Egypt", identifies the children of Israel as the people who dwelt in Egypt.

F. "Israel," who sojourned for 430 years includes Abraham and his descendants (Rom 9:6-13; Heb 11:8-9)

G. "By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. 9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:" (Heb 11:8-9, KJV)
