Day 66

Deuteronomy 24-26

Chapter 24

The review of rules continues. There’s a mix of good, bad, and ugly in these chapters. But how about v 16? “Parents must not be put to death for the sins of their children, nor children for the sins of their parents. Those deserving to die must be put to death for their own crimes.” Doesn’t that kind of contradict everything we’ve learned to date? (Compare with Exodus 34:7 and Numbers 14:18.)

Chapter 25

V 7-10 describes the sort of justice found in any elementary schoolyard. Seriously???? This is the best an omnipotent being could come up with? And thus ends the section on social regulations.

Chapter 26

This chapter deals with identity and loyalty, and it’s boring. But I can see how verses 18-19 might fuel conflict in the Middle East.
