Entry 43: Leviticus 7

Dear Readers,

More talk of offerings... The biggest deal in my opinion would be "to be cut off from his people". To be that sounds like shunning. I would think that shunning behavior would be reserved for pedophilia, murder, arson, and so on. This doesn't seem to be the case here as the offense mentioned weren't that severe.

  1. But the communities were very small, tight knit and familial in many ways, so any infraction disrupted the peace and tranquility and harmony of the group. So, shunning, a person's worse nightmare back then, kept the community obedient.
