Video: What’s the Context of Exodus 22?

Check out the new video on the YouTube Channel as Lloyd and Pastor Bennett answer a listener email about the context of Exodus 22:2-3.

Mike writes:

“Hi guys. I’d like some help understanding the context of the thief in the night verses from Exodus 22. If a thief is caught breaking in at night and is stuck a fatal blow, the defender is not guilty of bloodshed; but if it happens after sunrise the defender is guilty of bloodshed. I’m having a hard time understanding the difference. Is the important part the time of day or the fact that it’s a “thief” and not really a deadly threat.”

Prayer of the Week

O God, the Protector of all that trust in You, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy, increase and multiply upon us Your mercy that, You
being our Ruler and Guide, we may so pass through things temporal that we finally lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.
