From “When God Spoke Greek: The Septuagint and the Making of the Christian Bible” by Timothy Michael Law

“it is unfortunate that these issues cause greater concern to modern readers for whom contradictions and inconsistencies pose problems, but in the world in which the Bible was shaping up these seem not to have been problematic at all. We could appreciate positively the growth of the biblical tradition witnessed through  these texts rather than interpret negatively  – or worse, ignore, the evident that lies before us.”
