Biblical Restraint and Kindness
In our latest message we look at Biblical Restraint and Kindness. The category of law Jesus interpreted was what we know today as lex talonis or the law of retaliation, which stems from the interpretation of "an eye for an eye" (Exodus 21:24).
The law calls for true justice to be satisfied and for evildoers to be punished (Deut. 19:19), but always the proper authorities were to be involved and everything was to be done with a spirit of truth and balanced scales.
