Old Testament Violence (Video)
Larry Taunton, executive director of Fixed Point Foundation, has never been about avoiding the tough questions. So, true to form, he takes on one of the most difficult subjects for both believers and non-believers when it comes to the Bible: How do we understand Old Testament violence? It's a barrier to faith for some and a source of confusion for many.
Where's the grace and mercy?
Larry dives right into the text to consider such stories as the Great Flood, the killing of the Egyptian firstborn, the sacrifice of Jephthah's daughter, the killing of the Midianite prisoners, and more - providing some principles that are helpful in processing these jarring events and the reasons behind them.
Is this utterly indefensible ground, or could it be that we need to know our Bibles better?
