Rook: Comanndments Context?
I've heard that the commands in the Bible are actually, in context, to apply to behavior within one's "in" group.
"Thou shalt not kill (a fellow Jew)"
Hence Moses leads a genocidal army wiping out tribes and people
"If a man (of your tribe) lay with another man (of your tribe)..."
It's known that in ancient times, when many an army invaded another land, everyone got raped. Mainly as a show of force but also to impregnate some of the surviving women, so the command was more for a man to not make himself subservient to another man in his tribe.
Have you heard this before and, if so, do you know of evidence to back up this claim of context?
