There are some scriptures that make perfect sense as soon as you hear them read. Then there are those scriptures that go against our natural inclinations, and this Scripture happens to be one. It starts out simple enough. Focusing in on what has been called the Law of Retribution or the law of compensation. “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” – that … part, by itself would be easy enough to understand and apply. But when you get to Jesus’s treatment of this law of retribution, that’s where things start to get a little uncomfortable.
