THREAD: The Bible’s most gory story

It’s the disturbing account of the rape & dissection of the Levite’s concubine (Judges 19-21)

With lessons about male violence against women #vawg
The story is set during the time of the judges, when there’s little government.

The 1st & last verses remind us that there was no king (Judges 19:1; 21:25), which has already become a motif (17:6; 18:1)

It’s at the climactic point of the Bible’s goriest book.
Other Bible books relate more deaths, but Judges, with Adoni-bezek’s thumbs/big toes cut off, Eglon’s belly stabbed, Sisera’s temple pierced, Abimelech’s skull crushed, Samson’s eyes gouged out, & the concubine dissected depicts more body damage than the whole rest of the Bible.
