  • Anouck it also speaks of it in the NT as well :-) nice try though.

    As for the OP question. That was during the time of the law which is different than what we are living in now the time of Grace.
    Jesus came to fulfill what they could not do then. It was impossible to please God and overcome sin in the OT times but when Jesus came to bridge that gap... it became much easier.

  • I dont know anyone that wears wool.
    Ther eare alot of things in the Bible that dont make sense but they are there. If you want to get in to it what about it saying that women are not to speak and they are supposed to stay home and only be the teachers of the sons?

  • duet was written around 8th century BCE, by a culture that we don't really know a whole lot about, especially being in the US lol

    There were many things that were relavant and had meaning when duet was put together that we don't have a clue about today.

    duet was originally written in Hebrew, and we do not know the full translation of the hebrew bible, only around 1/4 of the words in the hebrew bible have been able to been translated.

  • These verses discuss the concept of mixing materials and fibers that are of completely different characteristics. But many do not understand that these verses do allow for the mixture of certain fabrics while being within God’s Law. God established these laws to ensure that low quality fabrics are not produced. link
