  • Cannibalism is mentioned several times in Scripture (Leviticus 26:29; Deuteronomy 28:53-57; 2 Kings 6:28-29; Jeremiah 19:9; Lamentations 2:20; 4:10; Ezekiel 5:10), yet is NEVER banned or forbidden in these verses. So, take your pick.

  • Yes, in 2Kings the king of Syria attacks and cuts off the food supply of Samaria. Because of this the people are starving... Below is 2Kg 6: 26-29

    (26) One day as the king of Israel [g] was walking along the top of the city wall, a woman shouted to him, "Please, Your Majesty, help me!" (27) "Let the LORD help you!" the king said. "Do you think I have grain or wine to give you?" (28) Then he asked, "What's the matter anyway?"

    The woman answered, "Another woman and I were so hungry that we agreed to eat our sons. She said if we ate my son one day, we could eat hers the next day. (29) So yesterday we cooked my son and ate him. But today when I went to her house to eat her son, she had hidden him."
