Exodus 22 & 23 – Reading Note

  • Theft was unacceptable. A thief had to pay back what he had stolen, regardless (22: 3b)
  • Foreigners were not to be oppressed or mistreated (22:21) (23:9).
  • God cares for the oppressed – foreigners, widows, orphans and the poor (22: 21 – 27)
  • God is compassionate (22:27)
  • The people were to help their enemies (23: 4, 5). It seems that Jesus’ teaching about loving your enemies was taught in the Old Testament.
