Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)


A paradigm of inerrancy of a "mathematical" character, such as one based on Biblical numerics and the over-zealous identification of chiasmus & other literary structures, is not borne out by the facts of the Biblical text.

  1. The application of numerics & chiasmus to the Bible is considered at length in an Appendix1 to this document. Sufficient here to remark that the "mathematical" neatness of taking inerrancy as a model is totally undermined by the amount of special pleading that needs to be undertaken to make the model fit the facts, or, rather, to make the facts fit the model.
