"Who was Samuel’s firstborn son?" (Alleged Contradiction #E8709)
Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beersheba.
I Samuel 8:2
And the sons of Samuel; the firstborn Vashni, and Abiah.
I Chronicles 6:28
Joel also went by the name Vashni. It is very common, even in our modern culture, for someone to go by more than one name (legal name, preferred name, first/last name, nickname).
