What does Leviticus 25, if anything, have to do with our understanding of sin? What about G_d’s? Why would I even think that it does? (Luke 4 is only one example)

One thought on “>The X-Factor

  1. >Not from Lev. 25 but still a comment about sin from the Talmud – "A man should not say, it is impossible for me to eat swine's flesh; it is impossible for me to enter into an incestuous alliance. (He should rather say) it is possible for me to perform such acts; but what am I to do seeing that my Father in Heaven has so decreed for me?" The merit does not lie in withholding onesself from what is forbidden because there is no desire for it. The desire should exist, but withstood because it is forbidden. Abraham Cohen. Everyman's Talmud p. 103.
