Parashat Emor, (Leviticus 24:1-24:23), 5/3/14

“And Moses told [all this] to the children of Israel. So they took the blasphemer outside the camp and stoned him, and the children of Israel did just as the Lord had commanded Moses.” —Leviticus 24:23

Yes, I know that this may suggest that the Jews were ready for eliminating capital punishment, but I notice more my anger and feelings of intolerance for G_d who was intolerant of the blasphemer. Is the Torah a mirror whereby we see our own failings? Probably.
