June 30th: Judges 11 and 2 Thessalonians 3

One thought on “June 30th: Judges 11 and 2 Thessalonians 3

  1. Alastair,

    I was interested to hear your interpretation of the sacrifice of Jephthah’s daughter. A few years ago, if I recall correctly, you presented the view that the sacrifice was a lifelong dedication to tabernacle service as a potential option. But you were careful to note that when we bring our sensibilities to the text we can smooth over passages that are uncomfortable for us, and that the history of interpretation was on the side of the daughter being offered as a burnt offering. Therefore, we shouldn’t place much weight on the tabernacle service interpretation.

    Am I correct in that history, if so could you share how you view has changed to allow you to give a full-throated approval of the tabernacle service interpretation?

    Thank you.
