Murder is murder except when it is for a higher purpose….right? In a time where the courts won’t act for justice should one take the law in their hands? Phineas did in biblical times as the bible says he took two lives on behalf of G-D. This is one of the most difficult stories for us to understand today in our times where justice is determined by law and order, with a juror of our peers deciding our fate but if it broke down could this be our final verdict? Would we have Phineas’s in our life taking vengeance for the sins we commit not only against man but against G-D? Let us pray that this story continues to be read and not lived in our times. For if it did who would be left standing in each other’s blood.
