Now I'm also remembering the tale of Jeptha's daughter who actually WAS sacrificed as an offering to God. Man the Old Testament is a horrible bloody document.


The big problem for me (starting in 3rd grade) was my realization that our salvation apparently turned on Christ's death. And for that death to occur, Judas HAD to betray him.

I felt that Judas was hard done by: God required that someone betray the Christ; Judas got picked for this shit job and then was reviled and maligned down the ages for doing what God required of him. Poor guy hung himself from a tree in despair and (according to Dante) occupies the absolute center of hell.

It did not make sense.
