Many people today recast G-d and His Torah in their own image, according to their own criteria of how life should be. Pinchas was zealous for G-d’s honor, and that life should be lived as He has prescribed it. For his devotion to G-d’s honor, G-d honored Pinchas in return with His covenant of peace.
