What is the spelling of the system of laws/primary codex mentioned at 51:27? The Codex of Hammam? And are there any online resources to access this codex? Thank you!

Is this the Codex that mentions the background of an eye for an eye. I found your take on it very interesting and am interested in where one learns of the original laws that you mentioned about responding to the rich, equals and poor assailants differently.

I’m going to start from the beginning, but there are several things here which I am hoping you’ll give me some more clarification on or confirm what it seems you are saying. It seems that you are claiming that God the Father is clapping and cheering the slaughter of the Canaanites 14:36. He clearly commands the slaughter of every living thing but that doesn’t mean He walks in clapping and cheering for it. We have God patiently waiting during the 400+ years between Abraham and Joshua until the Canaanites iniquity is complete before doing what is demanded by their sin… Read more »

The English language, and really all language, is funny sometimes. It tends not to represent only one meaning behind each individual word, but dozens at times.

I’m sorry to hear about the pain in your hands. That has to be a very difficult thing to deal with in your line of work in an online world, as much of it seems to be things like what we are doing now. I wish we could talk face to face about these things because that is where clarity is usually found. I do agree that we start with the same root, but the problem often comes in following only one root and abandoning another. I see this all the time as I talk with people about the sovereignty… Read more »

I understand that you must be busy with everything you’re doing, but I’m hoping that we can keep this discussion open. I know we are at different ends on most of these issues, but I want to see what you are seeing that has led you to where you are. It is difficult sometimes when many of these points are just tiny branches that have all been fed from a single viewpoint. We, as humans, have a tendency to build our worldviews on narrow ideas and keep them growing until they topple. I want to understand more about the trunk… Read more »
