For Sunday, December 22
Welcome to the Pulpit Fiction Podcast, where two local pastors discuss the lectionary reading for the week. We are well aware that “What” is not a country, and we’ll try not to say it again. This is episode 42 for Sunday December 22, Advent 4A. We will be discussing:
Primary Scripture - Matthew 1:18-25- An Angel visits Joseph
“If a man is found having sex with a woman who is married to
someone else, both of them must die—the man who was having sex with
the woman and the woman herself. Remove such evil from
Israel! If a young woman who is a virgin is engaged to one
man and another man meets up with her in a town and has sex with
her, you must bring both of them to the city gates there and stone
them until they die—the young woman because she didn’t call for
help in the city, and the man because of the fact that he
humiliated his neighbor’s wife. Remove such evil from your
But if the man met up with the engaged woman in a field, grabbing her and having sex with her there, only the man will die. Don’t do anything whatsoever to the young woman. She hasn’t committed any capital crime—rather, this situation is exactly like the one where someone attacks his neighbor and kills him. Since the man met up with her in a field, the engaged woman may well have called out for help, but there was no one to rescue her.
If a man meets up with a young woman who is a virgin and not engaged, grabs her and has sex with her, and they are caught in the act, the man who had sex with her must give fifty silver shekels to the young woman’s father. She will also become his wife because he has humiliated her. He is never allowed to divorce her.”
