Video Description: In Part 2 of our teaching entitled, The Sword in the Old Testament, we continue examining the few extraordinary (and very limited) provisions for killing that are not considered to be murder in the Old Testament.

The Hebrew words for killing and murder are different. Virtually all acts of killing are considered unjustified and worthy of retribution by the Mosaic Law except for just a few that are detailed in this unique teaching series.

In Part 2, we consider the exceptions carved out in the Old Testament for Hebrew slaveholders who strike their slave to death and for those who accidentally/unintentional kill their neighbor.

Part 2 concludes our teaching from the Old Testament about the sword.

In this teaching, Jerry made two important book recommendations for those who want to further delve into this interesting topic, including:

Sacred Scripture, Sacred War: The Bible and the American Revolution by James P. Byrd


Nature’s God: The Heretical Origins of the American Republic by Matthew Stewart

Your Next Steps

1. Share this teaching with a friend or a family member. You can share the video link with anyone here. Even better, tell them to register for our 2019 monthly teaching series here.

2. Pray that God would you give you understanding and discernment about killing and self-defense. Seek to align your views not with your culture, but instead with God’s Word. You may not agree with everything we have said in this teaching, but it is important to know what you believe and why you believe it.

3. Embrace His Word and the culture’s scales will fall from your eyes on this highly controversial topic. That is our prayer for you.

We believe in the power of prayer. Send your prayer requests and praise reports here.

I look forward to returning next month with the rest of this teaching. The concepts that I have taught in this video series have transformed me from the inside out over the past several years. It is my prayer that these same concepts will lead to radical changes in your own life — for His glory.

Blessings to you!
