Contradictions in the Bible

Nayaswami Savitri

Question from Feo: What does Yogananda say about all the contradictions that are in the bible ? This is one of many examples: John 10:30, “I and my Father are one.” And John 14:28. “Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you.
