Mënschenopfer.

Chrëschten behaapten jo oft, dass die Geschicht wou den Abraham säi Fils Isaac dem Jahwe sollt opferen weisen sollt, dass den Jahwe usech keng Mënschenopfer wéilt hunn (am Géigensaz zu aneren Götter aus der Zäit) an hieren Gott jo en Gott vun der Léift etc ass. Domadder wier dat jo usech eppes Guddes gewiescht an d’Israeliten domadder moralesch op engem héijen Level (am Géigensaz zu den Azteken zb, déi jo kontinuéierlech Mënschen geopfert hunn).

Leider ass dat awer net ganz richteg, well et gët nach eng spéider Story am Buch der Richter, wou den Jahwe absolut net mat der Wimper zuckt, wéi e Mënsch fir hien geopfert gët. Mee villäicht hat en jo och keng Loscht ze intervenéieren wëll et dës Kéier just eng Duerchter (a Jongfra) woer?

Judges 11

Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah. He crossed Gilead and Manasseh, passed through Mizpah of Gilead, and from there he advanced against the Ammonites. And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD : “If you give the Ammonites into my hands, whatever comes out of the door of my house to meet me when I return in triumph from the Ammonites will be the LORD’s, and I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.”

When Jephthah returned to his home in Mizpah, who should come out to meet him but his daughter, dancing to the sound of tambourines! She was an only child. Except for her he had neither son nor daughter. When he saw her, he tore his clothes and cried, “Oh! My daughter! You have made me miserable and wretched, because I have made a vow to the LORD that I cannot break.”

“My father,” she replied, “you have given your word to the LORD. Do to me just as you promised, now that the LORD has avenged you of your enemies, the Ammonites. But grant me this one request,” she said. “Give me two months to roam the hills and weep with my friends, because I will never marry.”

“You may go,” he said. And he let her go for two months. She and the girls went into the hills and wept because she would never marry. After the two months, she returned to her father and he did to her as he had vowed. And she was a virgin.

Nach méi absurd gët et, wann een Jahwe = Gott = Jesus gläichsetzt …

Die ganz Episode do gouff och exzellent hei duergestallt:

    Natierlech. Trotzdem fannen ech esou Saachen extrem interessant, well se vill iwwert déi deemoleg Gesellschaft aussoen, déi dës Geschichten erfonnt (oder zum Deel erliewt) hunn.

    An dass keng Gesellschaft a keng Religioun sech et erlaben kann op d’héich Päerd a Punkto Moralitéit ze setzen, zumools wann een dat Ganzt am historeschen Kader kuckt.
