Discussion Questions:
Old Testament

  1. Chapter 30 of Numbers set out the law by which the father of an unmarried woman, or the husband of a woman could void her legal obligations. Is the purpose of this law to protect women from undertaking foolish obligations?
  2. Why did Moses command that the male children and women (other than virgins) from the Midianite captives be killed? Do we know if this order was carried out?

New Testament

  1. Are Jesus’ actions in this matter a blanket endorsement for us to associate with unsavory people in unsavory places? Luke 5:29-32
  2. What does Jesus mean in Luke 6:5 when he says, “The Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath?”
