Puzzles and Paradoxes
anonymous. 1987.  Facts and Faith 1(1):5. CELD ID 6206

Would you like to try your hand (or head?) at solving a problem? Here's one that may be familiar to you: Exodus 8:15, 8:32, and 9:34 tell us that Egypt's pharoah "hardened his heart" when Moses asked him to let the people of Israel go. However, in Exodus 4:21, 7:3, 9:12, 10:1, 10:20, 10:27, 11:10, 14:4, and 14:8 we learn that God hardened Pharoah's heart. Which of the five tools for paradox resolution (listed below) must be applied to unravel this seeming contradiction?
