There are none. and if people say that there are. It's because they never fully read it word for word and take scriptures out of context. Happens all the time.
Firstly, there are innumerable translation errors. More importantly, there are outright contradictions in this book of myths. I do not have enough space here to tell you all of them, but here are a few:
-Different ways to heaven: Ambiguous and Contradictory
1. Through Faith Alone (JOHN 14:6, MARK 16:16, ACT 16:30, EPH 2:8-9)
2. Good Deeds and Works, Not Faith Alone (PSALM 62:12, MATT 16:27, REV 22:12, JAC 2)
3. Salvation only through mercy (ROM 9:15-18)
4. Salvation is predestined before birth (ROM 8:29-30 and 29 other passages)
5. ALL mankind gets salvation (JOHN 1 2:2, ROM 5:18)
-Hypocritical: The Nature of God
6. Maybe there is no salvation (Psalm 88-read it.)
God is both peaceful and war-like (EXO 15:3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name; ROM 15:33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen. Is he the god of peace or war?!
"I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy." (JER 13:14) "Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not, but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling."
"The Lord is very pitiful and of tender mercy." (JAS 5:11)
"For his mercy endureth forever." (1CH 16:34)
"The Lord is good to all, and his tender mercies are over all his works." (PSA 145:9)
"God is love." (1JO 4:16)
So he'll f*cking kill you all, but he is love. Nice.
- Contradiction: Sins of the Father: ISA 14:21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities; DEU 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin. Which is it???
-Bats are listed as birds in LEV 11:19
-The shape of the Earth: ISA 40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in; MAT 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; these scenarios are only possible if the Earth is FLAT.
I could go on all day....
*backs away slowly* I'm not fond of the whole burned at the stake thing. Even if most were true witches. I'll stay out of this one.
just the errors in TRANSLATIONS must be innumerable......how many in typical interpretations ???? only GOD knows.....
There are no errors in the Bible, but only wisest counsels. That is why it was read by billions of people, and it will continue to be so for a long time.
First, I thought the Lucifer myth had been settled on EP by me: there is NO Lucifer in the Hebrew [Real] Bible. it was mistranslated and the inaccuracy perpetuated and appears only in Isaiah 14:12 now nowhere else at all! Most important, NO WHERE is Lucifer identified with Satan. Show me where? Lucifer (Venus) refers to the King of Babylon by analogy to a star! A reference like Revelation 9:11 which explicates clearly that Abaddon IS Apollyon would suffice, but there IS no such one.
I don't have chapter and verse now but I think in Kings 1 and 2 there is a discrepancy as to how many men were counted in the army...I'll track it down for anyone who needs it.
In Genesis the method of producing striped animals is to have them mate in front of a striped pole!
There is a reference to a city so utterly destroyed by God that no knowledge of it ever survived. Think about that!
In the New Testament: "Those who are not against us are for us" and in Matthew, Mark: "He who is not with me is against me". There can be people who are neither for nor against [those never hearing of Jesus], it doesn't mean not being against is the same as being for.
Reaping and sowing: in one place you sow what you reap in another people reap what they did not sow - Ecclesiastes 2:26.
There are others, but if these aren't accepted 100 more won't be either and I have "fart" questions to answer that make me laugh.
I invite all and sundry to challenge my references or lack thereof. I WILL converse with any sincere student. Promise... :)
Take for example, 'Thou shalt not kill'. In the original version of the bible it was, 'thou shalt not murder'. The Greeks didn't have seperate words for kill and murder, and when later historians took the Greek version and translated it into Latin, and from Latin into many languages of today. There's a problem right there.
Another mistake I find in the bible, is how God is presented. Take a few stories just off the wall and really look at them.
Tower of Babel. The entire consists of saying that man is growing wise and building with new tools now. Out of no where, God doesn't like this and punishes them. Can you say...moody?
The story of Moses freeing the Hebrews. God, in the form of a burning bush, tells Moses that he shall be God's representative to free the Hebrews from Pharroh, but Pharroh will not listen....errr...wait a tick. If God knows that Pharroh will not listen, why on 'God's' green Earth is he sending Moses to tell Pharroh to free the slaves? Why not just send down the seven plagues now. Can you say...introvert?
The bible is this vast array of stories. But that's all they are...stories. There is no definitive way to read it. True, you can read it with a pinch of salt and take moral lessons from it, but the meanings of words have changed since 3,000 years ago. People speak in entirely new ways and even trying to fully understand dead languages is a little like trying to read the dead sea scrolls without another rosetta stone.
The whole of the old testament .. thats the kind of typo only a deity could make (this proves god exists) ... but there does seem to be some slightly better proof reading once you get to mathew ..
the bible was written and rewritten by man ,interpetations are varied ,i think orginally the bible was meant as a guide and feel it is still the good book ,BUT that being said there is a large vast area for error .
people pick and choose what they want to believe ,the throw out all kinds of things said in the bible to fit their own perspectives.
i do believe the ten commandments are the whole sha bang so to speak ,,,,,,,,,and greatest of all "and the ONLY truth is "treat others as you want to be treated "
there could be no other law greater then that and IF people EVER tried this there could be no hate ,war ,crime ,but unfortunately people think they are the only ones that matter or feel superior .......so we will never really see a peaceful world .
just a few thoughts ,best to you
A better question would be what in the Bible is NOT an error?
None apart from on the first page is missing:

The Names changed Look at the Meaning of God, Jesus up in the Oxford dictionary it is chocking to see the real meanings, and do a study of Paul also it is even more chocking.
Anyone who hates the bible and uses the free space in their brain to poke holes in the in it really needs to worry about the positive and use that intelligence to be more productive in life. Everything in life is not always about tearing others down. I don't believe in the bible, but it is interesting to hear (not read) about. There are some things in it I have heard that make (God) look like a hypocrite, its been translated so many times who knows what the origional version said..... After all men have been known to use any means possible to sway the public oppinion. Even if that means changing an old doument.....
Polygamy for starters...ewww!
*backs away slowly with pickles*
Damn it! We must have made a wrong turn at Albuquerque!
Mathew 24 is a mess
Many minor words omitted which change the meaning
Chronicles talks about books that are no longer in the bible...where are they?
How must I know, I have never read it.
