Strictly speaking, the old testament commandment against adultery doesn’t actually mention intercourse

Many thanks Jay Dee for your response, but until you are willing to address real term definitions and clear biblical training I am able to just conclude you don’t as you can’t, because for the reason that treat it can’t be achieved, which is certainly the only truly legitimate approach. Every thing depends on proper hermeneutics along with your hermeneutic is simply too poor to face the test drive it calls for. I actually do maybe perhaps maybe not think the Bible was designed to be an explicit list of do’s and don’ts. Instead, it is a novel built to lead someone to a changed character that would understand the underlying principles contained therein (Galatians 3:24 26 stating this). Other things is legalism.

But, well you desire original definitions.

Let’s look at the expressed term for adultery into the Old Testament. Now, in the event that you return to ancient Hebrew, the term useful for adultery in Exodus 20:14 is Nun Alef Pey ( more on this later). While you may know already, Hebrew is just a language situated in tangible ideas. I’d argue it had been the very first language, as it does appear really built based very first on physical, effortlessly observable things, then on more technical concepts. Such things as a father is “ab”, or alef meaning “strength” and bet meaning “tent”, so father generally is the potency of the tent, or even the strong one in the home, or maybe more subtly the top of the home. Another instance: as you say their face is red if one is angry, you can’t say they’re angry so much. (more…)
