60IN60 Day 14 - Sun Nov 18

It's Day 14 and we're in Genesis 38.

- Verse 8 - As weird as this seems to us (and it is!), it was standard practice back then.  Of course, marriage wasn't done for love back then either.
- Verse 18 - Wow.  Just wow.  Incredibly dysfunctional.  There is a lot of Old Testament stuff that puts Jerry Springer to shame - and this is one of those moments.  Again, the one point I would make is this: everything that happens in the Bible is not God's will.  These actions are the result of Israel's sin.  The Bible tells us about it, but is not endorsing the actions.

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.
