The Story of Ezer and Elead (and What It Means for the Exodus)

Something else for Christians and anyone else who continues to hold on to the nonsensical belief there is any truth to the Exodus.

And those who beleive in the historicity of Jesus of Nazareth, I hope you are paying close attention?

Is That in the Bible?

Tucked away amidst the genealogies of Chronicles almost no one reads, the tale of two cattle-rustling brothers from Ephraim might just be the most obscure story in the Bible. Like many such tales in the Old Testament, this one is brief and contains only the most essential details:

The sons of Ephraim…Ezer and Elead. Now the men of Gath, who were born in the land, killed them, because they came down to raid their cattle. And their father Ephraim mourned many days, and his brothers came to comfort him. He went in to his wife, and she conceived and bore a son; and he named him Beriah, because evil (beraah) had befallen his house. His daughter was Sheerah, who built both Lower and Upper Beth-horon, and Uzzen-sheerah. (1 Chr. 7:20-24)

    1. John, to be fair Mark 14:6-7, do imply a resurrection. But the original ending of Mark at verse 8 with the women going out ‘afraid’ is odd. This of course led to the longer ending being tacked on later. Most of us grew up assuming the tacked on ending was part of the original text, but now pretty much 100% of scholars admit that the tacked on endings (I am aware of three different versions) could not have been written by Mark.

      1. And of course, if the wimmin said nothing who was it that recorded they said nothing?
        Which of course , would have meant they said something.

        Or is this all much ado about nothing?

    1. The article uses biblical text to demonstrate quite clearly why the Exodus could not have taken place.
      It reminded me how there are several instances of two versions of the same event and the compilers have just said, ”What the Sheol, Eli-stick ’em both in, they’ll never notice.”
