For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How old was Jehoiachin when he began to reign?
Here are the answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:
He was 18 years old and he reigned for 3 months.
“Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned for three months in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Nehushta the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.” ( 2 Kings 24:8)
He was 8 years old and he reigned for 3 months and 10 days.
“Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned for three months and ten days in Jerusalem. He did evil in the sight of the Lord.” (2 Chronicles 36:9)
(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)
