The main interpretive implication for the reader of the law codes in Torah and the surrounding narratives is to show us not only how holy God is but that he also desires Israel, his people, to be holy. The law codes show us a way – even though temporarily – a way to dwell with God, and that is the desire of this Holy God – to dwell with his creation.

The first Act is the story of a lost sheep; the second part of the parable tells the story of a woman losing a valuable coin and the final Act details a story about a loving and gracious father whose son deserted him and went away into a foreign country where he came to be in want. “What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
