To argue whether Holy Scripture contains contradiction is like arguing whether a picture is flat. They are both representations, pointing beyond themselves, like the proverbial finger pointing at the moon. If you cannot look through the picture or the Scripture to the higher-dimensional reality it represents, you are merely critiquing art.

Excellent analogy. Thanks.

Yes, I had to grow past that stage. I think it is a matter of one's inclination. If you want to learn from scripture then you will not get tripped up with the contradictions. If you want to trivialize it you will see a contradiction and make that an excuse to not bother continuing.
