Hypothetically let's say that 3 armed men walk into a busy bank wearing balaclavas and rob the place. There are plenty of witnesses but there will be plenty of minor variations of what the men looked like, what they were wearing and the sequence of events when the witnesses tell what happened to the police.
You cannot have it both ways. You cannot claim that the Bible is the inerrant word of God, yet dismiss contradictions as due to human fallibility.

In my view the Bible is the grand narrative of God dealing with His creation as written by His image bearing creatures, not one ghost written by God. In that you will find human fallibility.
Yes, that's the sensible view, and I was pretty sure that was how you looked at it. However, it seems to me that the OP is posing the topic as a potential problem for inerrantists.
