And word 'naar' in Hebrew is used for both lads and 24 year old young men according to one site on the net.Now if Abraham had to wait until some 100+ years to conceive in those time periods i.e if he were to become sexually mature at 100+ years of age(living for 100s of years by many of the mythical characters of the O.T is seen as a sign of piety),24 years does seem to be pretty young age if one goes by those texts,even if they are assumed to be 24.
Now And those people have not planned to kill him.Show me where it says so,instead of making up excuses and stories.They just make a mockery of him calling him 'bald head'.That by no means is sufficient enough to cause them to be devoured by bears.So in effect silencing of critics is done even if it is to be done with cursing your opponents with death with the power of God.Same is the case in Islam.
You missed the ending of that movie. Those bears which you mention, ended up devouring hamburgers in that McDonald fastfood on Hollywood Blvd. Then, to show they treat all religion equally, they went to Humus/Fallafel & Sheesh kabab places and devourd them too.
As for the word "na'ar" נער usually referred to teen age boys - not necessarily to 24 year old man
Dude, so you are a now a hebrew scholar. I've already explained it was a gang of 42 thugs. They aren't children at all.
The Hebrew word can refer to children, but rather more specifically means "young men." The NIV, quoted here, uses the word “youths.” Second, the fact that the bears mauled 42 of the youths indicates that there were more than 42 youths involved.
They aren't children at all, and they are threatening a prophet--a man they know has power, and a man who follows a known man before him who was literally raised to heaven. They are telling him to _die_.
I'm done with this, since all you can do is show the same statments over and over, and that is your belief that 42 children all chose at once to make fun of "some guy." and God chose to kill them for that.
They knew exactly what they were doing and who he was.
Thanks for playing Hombre.
