Biblical contradictions Part.II

When you compare the book of Genesis and Chronicles 1, you can find lot of letter confusion. The reasons behind this are the following: The Jewish scribes who transmit the text to the next generations could not do perfectly with the Hebrew letters since some of the Hebrew letters are similar to each other. If you compare both the genealogies given in Genesis and Chronicles 1 at least 114 names disagree with each other.

Some of the names in Bible are transposed the name of the tree Almug, Keseb, Shalami etc are transposed as Algum, Kebes and Shamlai respectively (there are more such transpositions of letters are there.)
Most of the names are related with some exceptional incidents in the life. The name of Adam means ground as he was created from earth. Abram’s name was altered as Abraham which means fatherhood.
Most of the names have “ Baal “ with their names, remember Nebuchadnezzar god name is  Bel. This name Baal is related with the Pagan goddess.  Because they hatred Pagan gods names; in later period the names have changed (example the name Eshbaal as Ishbosheth). You can find the name change in Jewish Scriptures also more than hundred places the term YAHWEH as ADONAY by Jewish scribes. In Hebrew  Yahweh means “standing before”.  One who standing before is inferior in Hebrew and hence they changed Yahweh as Adonay.

Do You Know?
According to Midrashic literature, Adams first wife was Lilith and Eve was his second wife.
