Week #18: Mishpatim: "Judgments"
THE INSTRUCTIONS OF YHVH
From this point moving forward much of the story of the Israelites centers around YHVH instructions for His people. The specificity and wisdom in these texts is remarkable as even in our modern society many of these guidelines are still in practice today or have been confirmed by modern science. This section opens with instructions regarding "servants", many of your translations may say "slave". However, the Biblical instruction is regarding indentured servanthood..

GET THE MOST OUT OF THE RAISING WARRIORS BIBLE STUDY GUIDES:
How Did Raising Warriors Begin? In this short, fun video we describe the basic story of how the Raising Warriors Study Guides came into existence. While this is our personal journey as a teacher and a youth pastor we began to see a great need for solid, Biblically sound Bible Studies for families. However, that proved to be a very difficult task.
This study guide is unique in so many ways, and it may take a few weeks to get into a good rhythm. We encourage everyone to watch this short video before using the Raising Warriors Family Study Guides. This study is likely not even close to anything you may have seen int the past, and it can be a little overwhelming at first. Have no fear, this video explains exactly what to expect, and how to implement it with your family in the most effective manner possible.

Speak Life: Sam Harris vs Jordan Peterson Part 4: Does The Bible Condone Slavery? (This is commentary on a debate about the Bible. The commentary is good on the debate, but is incomplete. Please watch and test if this is a valuable conversation starter for your family, especially your teens.)
Whaddo You Meme?: Why the Bible (doesn’t) Support Slavery (Response to Cosmic Skeptic) Part 1 (Parents: I would encourage you to watch this video and the series. While he offers a mainstream "Christian" viewpoint, he actually handles the arguments very well. My primary objection is they keep using the term "slave" and really we are talking about servanthood)
