“An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” For most people, this is the best known part of biblical law. And for some people, it’s the only part of biblical law they know. Is it representative of biblical law as a whole – and what does the saying really mean? What does the Bible think about homicide and vengeance? And what does it see as an appropriate response to terrible events which devastate so many families and societies? With Jonathan Burnside, Michael Naughton Julian Rivers Donald Shell and Chris Willmore.
