Question 298

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? Is there a contradiction between Matthew 10:29 & Luke 12:6?

(Matthew 10:29) Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

(Luke 12:6) Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God.

Answer: NO

There are those that have supposed a SO CALLED contradiction between these two verses.

The answer to this question is quite simple.

When FOUR SPARROWS were bought the EXTRA SPARROW (the 5th one) was added in FOR FREE, it was the Bible equivalent to our modern day Buy One Get One or also known as BOGO, NO CONTRADICTION.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
