    I’ve always found it strangely coincidental that the Lord always says things that anyone living in the time period of the sacred book could have known – and ditto for the Lord’s ethical teachings. But I guess for a Bronze Age desert dweller sacrificing an animal or only enslaving people from other tribes (and not your fellow Hebrews, unless it’s your daughter) was a step in the right direction.

    Personally, I would be more impressed with these books if they contained anything related to chemistry, computation, atomic structure, electricity, the actual creation story, biology, etc. – even if the utterances were couched in mystical and metaphoric language.

    Is there a difference between ot and nt? The lord does what is best for his children at the time. There are soft instances in OT and harsh NT. The word to describe illegitemete children is found in NT though Mike Reagan found out there was a difference when he was called a profane name in grade school. If you read both no difference.
