Monday – Joshua 20; Romans 13:1–14
How do these passages apply to us as Christians? Are they referring to the same thing?
These passages describe examples of the justice of God. Do you agree? Are they just? What’s the application to you?
What do these passages teach us about God’s justice? Any application to your daily life?
Thursday – Joshua 20
One of the expositors said that Joshua 20 “breathes the sanctity of human life.” Is that true of both the manslayer and the one who is slain? What do you think? Why does the manslayer have to stay in the city of refuge until the High Priest dies?
In Numbers 35:30–34 there’s no ransom for either the murderer or the manslayer that went to his city of refuge. Why not? Clearly, blood had to be shed when someone died in these circumstances. Where’s the blood shed for the manslayer?
God’s justice is for everyone, including the stranger (alien, sojourner). How does that apply to us? To you?
