When we read through Leviticus 24 from a Western perspective, the chapter seems disjointed and out of place. What exactly is this chapter doing at this spot? It is an inconclusive answer to this question that leads some to make up various answers. However, if we stop and consider every part of this chapter in the context of all that surrounds it, we might just find that there is an important topic being addressed just under the surface. An important aspect of community that up to this point has not been addressed in Leviticus.
