Challenge from Professor Peter Polite: The Bible contradicts itself. In one place Michal, Saul's daughter, has children and another she does not. Compare 2 Samuel 6:23 and 2 Samuel 21:8.

How might we best respond to this challenge?

2 Samuel 21:8 King James Version "But the king took the two sons of Rizpah the daughter of Aiah, whom she bare unto Saul, Armoni and Mephibosheth; and the five sons of Michal the daughter of Saul, whom she brought up for Adriel the son of Barzillai the Meholathite"

2 Samuel 6:23 Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto the day of her death.

Question from Mr. Confused Unbeliever: The Gospels contradict each other. In one place it says the women who went to the tomb were too afraid to tell anyone (See Mark 16:6-11) and others they say the women went and told someone right away. (Mt 28:5-10, Lk 24:1-11, and Jn 20:10-18) Which is it? If they told no one, how do we know about this story?

How can we best answer this question?
