For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did the city of Ai exist after Joshua destroyed it?
Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:
No, it was never rebuilt after Joshua destroyed it.
“So Joshua burned Ai and made it a refuse heap forever, a desolation until this day.” (Joshua 8:28)
Yes, it existed at the time of the Babylonian captivity.
“the men of Bethel and Ai, 123;” (Nehemiah 7:32)
(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)
