Last quote by Jacqueline Lapsley

Some who write on this story don't want to talk about what happens in Numbers 36, when the women being able to inherit gets mitigated somewhat. There is a concern from other voices in the community – some men in the tribes – that if the women marry outside the tribe, the land also goes. So there's a whole back-and-forth about those concerns and trying to adjudicate within the community. It's rounds of listening and rounds of response – and that's part of community life, too: compromise.feedback

I need to take this to God.' The story suggests we need to engage in discernment. And then the law is changed – the law, even within the Old Testament, is not static; it's dynamic. And the women's voices are heard. They were on the outside, they were vulnerable, but their voices were heard.”.
