He remembered entering first jhana naturally before being taught so he sits under a tree for a long time. Then he goes beyond the eighth jhana to the ninth jhana. How are those two events related?

I don't know, a number of the aspects of the stories seem to be not so much dependent on presenting facts but with presenting ideas and concepts through the way the story is told.
