Thinking It All the Way Through

“The same Old Testament law that required stoning to death for lying about fornication also required a parapet around the roof of an Israelite’s house. This was necessary because they spent a lot of time up there, and the requirement ws comparable to our requirements for railings on second story decks, fences around swimming pools, and covers over wells. Such modern examples fulfill the biblical principle even if the method looks entirely different. A metal covering for a well looks nothing like an ancient Israelite parapet, but we can see the same principle” (From 5 Paths, p. 62)
