Curious response Alien... You sound like a Bible student, and as such you'd well know that the word Christ (Christos in Greek) is Messiah in Hebrew
(mean's "Anointed One") and is a "job title" for the head of the religious/political body.
Knowing such, you'd already know there were many Christs/Messiahs in the Bible, starting with King Saul, then David, etc...
Further, you'd recognize that that old Leviticus law only applied to those enfranchised citizens, only the Judeans (for the Kingdom of Israel was
carted off by the Assyrians), and only possible if the Ark was present.
Since the Babylonian "Galut" in about 500 bce, there hasn't been an Ark to speak of (that's when it went missing), then I guess you're right
about not needing to fulfill the law since the last Messiah of the kingdom the loss of the Ark in the 500s bce.
Although, it could be possible you speak of Yeshua who was said to fulfill the Law... but that wasn't when he was born, that would have come later,
after he lived by the law, and would have rallied the townsfolk to stone a few law-breakers (as according to the Law he is said to have upheld 100%...
minus that "go forth and multiply" part).
Personally, I like the letter to Dr. Laura. I would have added a question about those mouthy teenagers next door though. Deut. 21:18- tells us we need
to convene the Home Owners Association and put those rocks out of the garden to use.
"If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, his father
and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. They shall say to the elders, 'This son of ours is stubborn
and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a profligate and a drunkard.' Then all the men of his town shall stone him to death. You must purge the
evil from among you."
