Stoning in the Bible Stoning in the Bible

   Discussion: Stoning in the Bible
kevinmanuel · 6 months ago
  • Hi,
  •  
  • There has been a lot of debate lately about violence in the Quran. I've read it, and I can clearly see where ISIS gets its inspiration. However, the Bible is often criticized for having similar violence. I looked into it and want to discuss Deuteronomy 22. In this chapter, it clearly states that an adulterer(ess) is to be put to death or to be stoned for their sin. I know that Jesus counters this in John 8, but that doesn't change what God commands in Deuteronomy. Our OT and NT are the same God! Thoughts welcome.

  • 13 If a man takes a wife and, after sleeping with her, dislikes her 14 and slanders her and gives her a bad name, saying, “I married this woman, but when I approached her, I did not find proof of her virginity,” 15 then the young woman’s father and mother shall bring to the town elders at the gate proof that she was a virgin. 16 Her father will say to the elders, “I gave my daughter in marriage to this man, but he dislikes her. 17 Now he has slandered her and said, ‘I did not find your daughter to be a virgin.’ But here is the proof of my daughter’s virginity.” Then her parents shall display the cloth before the elders of the town, 18 and the elders shall take the man and punish him. 19 They shall fine him a hundred shekels of silver and give them to the young woman’s father, because this man has given an Israelite virgin a bad name. She shall continue to be his wife; he must not divorce her as long as he lives.

  • 20 If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the young woman’s virginity can be found, 21 she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done an outrageous thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house. You must purge the evil from among you.
