Believe it or not in Bible Vs Quran (2) the Biblical Superman became weak? (B)

 

In the Bible, it seems likely that the writers of the Old Testament figured out that the verse of  2 Samuel 23:8 is unbelievable and it is very hard to believe that one of King David’s Mighty Men lifted up his spear against 800 men and killed all of them immediately.

For this reason, the eminent writers of the Old Testament tried to solve this problem and they have changed the story and said (in 1 Chronicles 11:11) that this Mighty Man lifted up his spear against 300 men (not 800) and killed all of them at once.
