    In 1 Samuel 15:18-23 David is recommended & introduced to Saul and he becomes his musician to help with depression & fear attacks, Saul knows who he is, & who is father is, he loves David, and asks his father to let him stay with him, & David becomes his musician & armor bearer. Then in 1 Samuel 17: 55- 18:2, Saul doesn't know David & inquires who he is, & who his father is, he's not with him or being his armor bearer, & after that he keeps David with him.

    That wan't helpful at all. There are obvious contradictions in Bible and things that don't make sense. Bible says that pi = 3. A lot of events are told quite differently from different POV and they often contradict each other. What can you say about this?

    So basicly if it does not fit, try to make it fit….

    “The Bible can’t contradict” The Bible does contradict. Therefore the Bible is not the word of God.

    Worst explanation I’ve ever heard. And I’ve heard a lot.

    The Bible Says that God is Jealous God, it also says that " God is a Holy god and can be nothing but Holy? But if I were to brake the 10 commandments i would not be considered Holy. Which to covet thy neighbors property is to be Jealous of thy neighbors Property, which is not Holy. So if God is Jealous he is not Holy or Righteous. Becaus to brake the 10 commandments is not holy. Therefore the Bible is In Contradiction. The image of god not devote. So the Bible is in improper accumulation of what Holiness means, which is a major lac in a political identity or Politically correct identity.

    Please stop feeding us this malarkey it's quite obvious that if Yahweh is all-knowing and all understandable he would explain it to these individuals in a format that it will be understand in the future years to come stop trying to make excuses for Yahweh it is what it is it's not able to be understood, It is what it is it's full of contradictions and it's quite obvious and it shows it in every single book of the bible

    How about not relying on the Bible for every aspect of life? It was never meant to be a definitive guide to life. Jesus never said that the New Testament will be written and it will remind you of all things. Instead he said the Holy Spirit will remind you of all things. And even Paul said, "The letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life." So, relying on a book instead of your heart and common sense which comes from the laws God has written in our hearts, is the better way to go. Doctrinal arguments NEVER end and usually lead to nowhere.

    Sounds like a bunch of hogwash and spin instead is saying we have faith. We know it doesn’t make sense, but instead you try and tie things together that makes you look like you know what you are talking about when you just end up looking like a fool.

    If God is a perfect God who doesn't make mistakes, then how do you explain sinners, people going to hell, God repenting of his anger etc.?

    So God IS the author of confusion? – Perhaps you can't handle the fact that you were wrong all this time, so you reach for straws to explain it?

    Great suggestions. However, would you also recommend reliable ways or resources for laypeople to investigate these historical and grammatical context of scriptures? I think many would like to do the investigation but few know how.

    This was really great. Thank you for doing these. I'd love to see a future video that touches on this a bit more with maybe some examples in there as well.
