Parsha Mishpatim (Exodus/Shemot chapters 22 through 24) is said to contain over 11.5% of all the Mishpatim, or commandments, in the Torah. And it’s now just about the most “politically-INcorrect” of all, too. Which says even more about a society that so hates His Word.
This is the first set of instruction that follows the giving of the ‘Ten Commandments,’ and appears to continue a theme; YHVH brought them – and all of us – out of bondage, and then explains how to build a society, and live in His freedom.
This next installment then follows with a caution about the alternative.

Lately, it almost seems as if that might even be an understatement.
Which turns out to be the point.
