The fact that you justiofy the story by saying that "The burning of a whore was part of the Law," shows how cruel your bible is. That being said, Judah did not threaten to kill her because she was a pro, but because he thought that his daughter in law was a pro. It shows the hypocritical nature of the bible. A john has the right to order the death of the pro he fked.<quoted text>
Are you a Muslim? Judah was not a prophet.
The burning of a whore was part of the Law. Judah would have obeyed the law by having her burnt. He changed his mind not because he found she was with child from him, but because he admitted that she was the righteous one, when he refused his son to marry her.
Gen 38:26 And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.
Not conceiving through whoredom , the penalty was inappropriate.
The bible is a book of myths, not more valid than Peter Pan.<quoted text>
The Bible tells the story like it is – no superhumans that only does good. David (He was an ancestor of Jesus) commits adultery and sends Betsheba’s husband to his death. Similar stories expose Jacob (with his mother) cheating Esau out of his birthright. In the new Testament Thomas doubting that Jesus has risen, the disciples running away when Jesus is taken into custody, Peter denying Jesus. No heroes. Just fallible people like you and me.
