Response to My option...
that the scriptures are not meant to be historical or in the most part to be taken literally that causes discrepencies and historical difficulties. If you work on the basis that scripture interprets scripture then there should be little inconsistant with interpretation. For example, the word eye is used through scripture but here is where scripture interprets scripture:
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
Here we see that the eye is connected to understanding that leads to enlightment.
There are also names, numbers, places and gender that have similar keys to unlocking the mystery concealed in the narratives. JB
