052: Leviticus 24-25

Yahweh chats it up with Moses again. Cupcakes…you’ll get it once you read about it. Then we move on to some juicy gossip. We get into a very interesting story that ends in a brutal punishment. We also hear that famous statement an “eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”. Listen up farmers, ya gotta take a break in planting your fields so they don’t go barren on you. Also we learn about this super confusing thing called the 50th year Jubilee. Sounds fun…but really it’s just a lot of math and logistics. Oh and also don’t enslave your own people. Enslave other people. Yup, it's in the bible folks.

051: Leviticus 22-23

Another big drinking episode, maybe take baby sips during this one friends. Here we have another confusing reading from Leviticus. The translation of these chapters are rough to say the least. Yahweh gives some more laws to Moses that don’t make a whole lot sense with today's judicial atmosphere. Things like offerings must be male without blemish (blind, broken limbs, maimmed, scurvy, scabbed, wen). Don’t kill baby animals, wait until they grow up a bit. We learn about the Sabbath on the 7th day and also passover. Don’t eat the first of your harvests until you’ve made and offering to Yaweh. The weirdness continues, you'll just have to listen to this one to get it all.

Some more random laws coming at ya in these chapters! Some examples - Don't gather fruit that's already dropped from the tree leave them alone for starving people, don't eat meat with blood in it, dont practice sorcery, don't pimp out your daughter, etc. Lots of pretty confusing laws and equally harsh punishments in this one as well. This reading closes with some rules for priests. Also...get ready to drink....a lot!
