Please provide an example.Well, Genesis 1 and 2 disagree about the order in which things are created, and how satisfied God is about :the results of his labors.
You have to be more specific, I do not see one.
:The flood story is really two interwoven stories that contradict each other on how many of each kind of :animal are to be brought into the Ark--is it one pair each or seven pairs each of the "clean" ones?
Its both, the seven pairs are specifically the animals that were forbidden to be eaten under Jewish Law (seafood, pork, etc.).
:The Gospel of John disagrees with the other three Gospels on the activities of Jesus Christ (how long had :he stayed in Jerusalem--a couple of days or a whole year?)
Right, the 3 other gospels depict a 1 year ministry, and John depicts a 3 year one.
Scholars have a theory that John's gospel was written in stages. The first stage was a short narrative that combined various stories and teachings passed down from original witnesses. Later in time, a second author tried to introduce some foreign ideas into this gospel. Jesus has some long speeches in this gospel which is strange because in the other three he talked usually in parables. If this theory is correct, then these are fabrications embedded in this gospel by a second and hidden author.
