Biblical Faith – with Sam Peak
Daily Torah series available Sunday-Friday.
Exodus 21:1–24:18; Sefer haB’rit (The Book of the Convenant) spells out ways to arrive at mishpatim (rulings). This parashat begins: “V’eleh ha-mispatim asher tasim lifneihem (And these are the rulings you are to set before them).” Sefer haB’rit is not really a law code of commandments to be observed. Rather, it is a guide for writing rulings to add enforcement provisions to the principles of Aseret ha Dibrot (the Ten Words).
