Woodcut-style-image-of-the-Biblical-Moses-bringing-the-ten-commandments-down-from-the-mountain--Stock-VectorWhen interpreting Old Testament law it’s important to recognise who it’s for. For while some laws were given to humans in general, other laws were given to the Israelites alone. And while some laws were given to the Israelites in general, other laws were given to the Levitical priests alone. And while some laws were given to the priests in general, others were given to the high priest alone. It is important therefore to pay attention to the context as well of the content of laws. Lest we apply laws in situations for which they were never intended.
