"I’m fascinated by the fact that it was a liberal, MBS @34, who first pointed outh that “an eye for an eye” was explicitly overturned by “turn the other cheek.”
This is yet another example of the intrinsic antisemitism of Christians. The Roman Bible did not "overturn" the Torah.By the time "the cheek" quote was supposedly at least 1500 years had passed.
The context, by7 the way, was that we, the Jews, were split. Some of us wanted to NOT turn the other cheek and fight back at our Roman oppressors. Others said we should turn the other cheek. The same debate occurred two centuries later when many of us went willingly into Auschwitz.
Giving the Roman bible credit for "overthrowing" Judaism is as disgusting as Christian claims to have brought civilization to he slaves of Africa.
