  2. I read the article on apparent contradictions in the Bible. I’ve held for many years that “contradictions” are only apparent contradictions after taking a closer look and putting the statements in context. The article is well done, but it got me thinking about the converse. What about entire chapters of the Bible that seem to repeat word for word? They occur in the historical books of Israel and I imagine, their concept of scholarship not being what ours is, one historian simply copied from another without giving credit. Paul wrote many letters intended for different audiences so it makes sense that his list of fruits of the Spirit in one book looks a lot like his list of those same fruits in another book. But what do you do with 2 Samuel 7 and 1 Chronicles 17, or 2 Kings 19 and Isaiah 37? There are several examples from those same books AND they appear in order. Most people consider them curious Bible trivia facts; I see a historian doing the ancient equivalent of copy and paste.
