1. Because in this context the soul is the body.Other than translating nephesh as whatever you want it to be to suit your preferred theology can anyone answer the questions:
1. How can a human touch a dead soul if souls are immortal and invisible? Numbers 6:6.
2. How can a human kill a soul if souls cannot die because of their immortality? Numbers 31:19.
Doulon, you have up until now failed to comment on this. Is it your view that nephesh/soul is immortal and cannot die?
2. Matt 10:28 soul is in a different context and it does not mean the body. The soul that GOD does not kill is then immortal. The soul that GOD kills is obviously not immortal. Read the scripture and compare it to Num 6:6 and see the difference.
Thirdwitness you have failed to address the differences of these two scriptures...Why is it you refuse to look and compare them? Are you afraid that there are different meanings of soul depending on the context and therefore the WT has taught you another lie?
