In this 5 minute video, Dr Zakir Naik reels off a load of alleged numerical contradictions within the Bible. Contradictions can be harmonized by advancing “rounding off” and the idea of difficulties not pertaining to the same event BUT can they ALL be answered in a satisfying manner?
Bible: Huge and unbelievable mathematical contradictions?
There is a transcript of this video – appended in the comment section. I wonder what the lay Christian would make of such a list of problems.
In the Christian world, the Bible was generally immune to criticism and such scrutiny until the Renaissance:
“People’s view of the Bible went through dramatic changes down the centuries. For a long time and until the fourteenth century, the Bible was looked upon as the “Word of God” which could contain no error or false information…” 
“Slow but steady change, however, started to occur to this attitude with the advent of the Renaissance, which began in the fourteenth century Italy before spreading to other parts of Europe…” 
“The Biblical texts which remained immune to criticism even when all kinds of writings and concepts were being thoroughly re-examined, had finally to surrender itself to the methods of document criticism”. 
It’s interesting to note this enlightenment as to the Bible’s unreliability only began to sprout its shoots in the fourteenth century whilst a religion in the East had ALREADY taught the Bible was a corrupted text – Islam.
Therefore woe be unto those who write the Scripture with their hands and then say, "This is from Allah," that they may purchase a small gain therewith. Woe unto them for that their hands have written, and woe unto them for that they earn thereby. [Pikthal’s translation of Quran, 2:79]
