Interesting article in Sojourners

I came across this article about violence in the Bible over at Sojourners Magazine. The questions about so-called God sanctioned violence have been asked for as long as there have been people to ask them. Derek Flood has a good take on Paul’s “re-purposing” of Old Testament texts in the light of Christ.
Note that you will need to sign up to read it, butt hay, it’s free.
