|Re: Jephtah And His Sacrifice. Did He Really Do It by DappaD: 1:04am On Jul 06|
Kobojunkie:When I showed you Exodus 13:11-16, you likely agreed that initially it didn't mean the Israelites would sacrifice their firstborn sons. And later on, more instructions were given on how to redeem their firstborns with five shekels (Numbers 3:44-47)
You think the Bible when writing on accounts of people writes everything concerning them? The account at Judges 11 is likely a condensed account of what took place. In reality, he did not sacrifice his daughter!
Oya leave me let me face the OP of this thread!

Kobojunkie:So you want to tell me God would approve of him disobeying his Law that was direct?. Read Deuteronomy 18:10,11 and Jeremiah 7:31, I've sounded this for sometime but you've been ignoring it.
“There should not be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, anyone who employs divination, anyone practicing magic, anyone who looks for omens, a sorcerer, anyone binding others with a spell, anyone who consults a spirit medium or a fortune-teller, or anyone who inquires of the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to Jehovah, and on account of these detestable practices Jehovah your God is driving”
“For the people of Judah have done what is bad in my eyes,’ declares Jehovah. ‘They have set up their disgusting idols in the house that bears my name, in order to defile it. They have built the high places of Toʹpheth, which is in the Valley of the Son of Hinʹnom, in order to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, something that I had not commanded and that had never even come into my heart”
The account of Judges 11:40 echoes the vow Hannah made to Jehovah concerning Samuel. (1Samuel 1:11, 22, 24)
“As soon as she had weaned him, she took him up to Shiʹloh, along with a three-year-old bull, one eʹphah of flour, and a large jar of wine, and she came to the house of Jehovah in Shiʹloh and brought the young boy with her.”
Hannah did not go empty handed and Jephthah also didn't go empty handed when presenting his daughter for service of Jehovah.
Your problem is that you can't seem to marry scriptures together to mean something and I don't blame you.

Kobojunkie:I'm sure you're conversant with the account of Abraham. When Jehovah God tested Abraham's faith by telling him to make a burnt sacrifice of Isaac, Abraham heeded to what God said. It was already established that he would sacrifice his son right? But Jehovah, being a God that abounds in loyal love would never want Abraham to sacrifice his son for any reason whatsoever and He sent his angel to tell Abraham not to harm Isaac. And instead, Abraham offered a ram as a burnt offering in place of Isaac. Here, Jehovah God relieved Abraham of that weight.(Genesis 22:1-14)
Likely, so at Judges 11, since it looks much like a condensed account, we CANNOT say that Jephthah offered his daughter as a burnt sacrifice even though he made such vow. Because Jehovah will never allow for such to happen and He would never approve of such, neither will He accept it. (Deuteronomy 18:10-11, Jeremiah 7:31)

@Kobojunkie, I've tried to make you see reason but you have locked your mind tightly. Well, okay it's fine, I want to only face the OP of this thread from now on.

DappaD:Look, I simply read what is written... as it is written. All that is needed to understand even tjat which is written in Exodus are language comprehension skills, nothing more advanced than that
