Who were David's 3 chief asskickers? In one verse it is Jashobeam, Eleazar and Abishai. In another it is Josheb-Basshebeth, Eleazar and Shammah. Which is it?
David's 3 kick ass mutha fukas were Jashobeam, Eleazar and Abishai and then later on Jashobeam and Abishai got their asses kicked so david recruited 2 more mutha fukas,
so it's now Josheb-Basshebeth, Eleazar and Shammah, the furious 3.
you don't think so? then can you come up with an objective evidence that proves I am wrong?
Like I said earlier, for me to say "there is a contradiction in a story" the story should be like this.
"David's 3 warriors were kicking every body's asses and their names were A, B, and C and those 3 never died or changed" vs "David's 3 warriors were kicking everybody's asses and their names were A, B, and D
Can you see a contradiction in this story? I do.
Same story (more or less), different guy. You might say, "maybe they both did the same thing." Seriously? It seems pretty obvious to me this is the same story from different tribes, each of whom inserted their local legendary hero. Does that really seem less likely to you than there being two separate battles with the Philistines, one in a barley field, one in a lentil field, both where the jooz ran away, both where defeat was avoided by separate heroes?
and regarding Eleazar and Shammah, what's wrong with kicking Philistines asses in either a barley or a lentil field?
these 2 dudes obviously have different names and fathers, and origins.
Do you know how many times Israelite kicked Philies' asses?
I don't see either contradiction or even unclearness in this story.
Do you get what I'm driving at? The bible is not clear.
when bible is telling history, it can not possibly contain every whys
on incidents and individuals. It is rather unnecessary. because things change, incidents happen, people die, chiefs gets killed, kicked out, promoted, laid off, hired, fired, re-hired, rescued, saved, recruited.....
