Deuteronomy 7, 19, 21–22 with Matthew Lynch

Join us as Dr. Matthew Lynch (Regent College) talks to us about Deuteronomy 7, 9, 21–22 (violence). We discuss a number of things including: what is understood as “violence,” the command to destroy the Canaanites, its potential reinterpretation in the Bible, cities of refuge, false witnesses, rules for war, unsolved mysteries in Israel, and how we understand these passages today, including how to respond to those who would apply them to the Ukraine War. Listen here.
