1) "He that stealeth a man, & selleth him...shall surely be put to death." (Ex. 21:16)

"If a man is discovered kidnapping any person from among his brothers, of the children of Israel, & treats him as a slave & sells him that thief shall die." (Deut. 24:7)

2) We are taught that the Bible does not repeat itself. So why are we told twice that you are not allowed to kidnap people to sell them?
3) I think the second mention is meant to respond to the rationalization that if someone is "my child" or from "my people," somehow pimping them out is not a capital crime.

1) It is not because we are righteous.

A somber #BibleStudyCoffeeTime
2) This week's Bible portion continues. We're still in Deuteronomy. Moses is prepping the Jewish people for entry into the Land of Israel.

As Jewish pep talks go, it is standard issue.

Lots of guilt!

Deuteronomy 7:12 - 11:25…
3) Deut. 9:5 "Not because of your righteousness or because of the honesty of your heart, do you come to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations."

that was just a warning ⚠️ as to what to expect today, unless I get interrupted or the clowns turn off my internet 👀

1) OK its #BibleStudyCoffeeTime!

This week: Parshas Chukas (Numbers 19:1–22:1)

✅ The red heifer
✅ Moses hits the rock and is barred from entering the Land of Israel
✅ Terrifying, vicious, venom-filled snakes attack the Jews
✅ Battle of Sichon and Og
2) Supplemental reading for today is Judges 11:1-33.

The Jews are attacked by the Ammonites. In response they try to make peace.

When they can’t, Jephthah (important: the son of a prostitute; important: at first exiled by his family) beats the shit out of the Ammonites.
3) (This may end up being a couple of threads. Time is a bit limited.)

1) Let's do a #BibleStudyCoffeeTime about Shavuos.
This is me and Andy learning at Chabad last night.
I'll try to tell you what the rabbi said.
2) The speaker was Rabbi Chaim Slavaticki of Las Olas Chabad Jewish Center. The event was "Pizza and Kabbalah." I would have Periscoped it or Facebook Live-d it but it wasn't appropriate, we were sitting around a large open dinner table and I can't be that weird.
3) Shavuos begins after Sabbath this year, on the nighttime of June 8. We celebrate the giving of the Torah.

2) Bottom line up front, we are living in a scary time, and we need to pray, but we also need to stay in faith, because God only asks us to start.
3) Q has advertised the date of March 19, 2019 as the marker.
We know that Q is a psyop (the good kind - a White Hat psyop).
We know that "disinformation is necessary" (Q's words.)
