-1001 CONTRADICTIONS & DISCREPANCIES in the CHRISTIAN BIBLES


Was Mahli the son of Levi?


Yes.

... of the sons of Mahli, the son of Levi, the son of Israel.... Ezra 8:18

No.

And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. Genesis 46:11, 1 Chronicles 6:1, 16

The sons of Levi, namely, Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. 1 Chronicles 23:6

And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari. Exodus 6:16


The mistake here seems to be in Ezra, since everywhere else in the Bible Mahli is said to be the son of Merari. (Num 3:20; 1 Chr 6:19, 23:21, 24:26).
