It appears that proponents and opponents of inerrancy often have different
definitions of the term. Using what I assume that the leading proponents
of inerrancy mean by the term, the above quote would suggest that in Matt.
19:8 Jesus said that Moses didn't have his facts straight. Actually, what
He indicates is that the standards of the Mosaic Law were less strict than
God's standards. There is a difference between pointing out shortcomings
in the Law of Moses and saying that something is inaccurately reported.
