Discussing Difficult Bible Passages

Over the last couple of months I have had some conversations with various people about passages in the bible that they find difficult to understand or difficult to reconcile with their understanding of God.  Some of us can go for years without being disturbed or confused by something and then all of a sudden a passage hits them and their confidence is shaken.  Others come to passages, wrestle with them and come to an understanding for themselves.  Still others talk with people or even enroll in theology courses to gain a better understanding.  Some just get stuck.  I thought this would be a good place to have a conversation and share some insights.

I am inviting you to leave a comment listing the bible passage(s) that you have found difficult.  You may want to just put up the reference or the reference and a particular question or difficulty.  I will have a go at responding to all of them - I don't promise to solve everything but at least I hope to be able to point to a way forward.  In addition, I look forward to your insights or understandings of various passages that you have come to.  Lets share our questions and our insights.
