The story of Lot banging his daughters only hours after Jehovah kills his wife.... the fact it’s not even on my list really highlights the depth of depravity in the book.
The thing that shocked me most was Jepthah’s story. Raised in the truth, I somehow missed that story entirely.
When I was 19, the age I got baptised, the section in Judges containing Jephtha’s daughter was the weeks bible reading. I was so disturbed I spoke to an elder, who subsequently he gave me the WT explanation..... but it just didn’t read like that.
It was straight forward the first time I read it, Jephtha’s no name daughter got killed, interpreting the story to mean otherwise is just defending the morally repugnant behaviour from Jehovah... yet again.
Imagine being born a girl to Israelite parents, under the mosaic law, just imagine!...... ok.. now go get therapy.
