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)
