Pentecost 8 – When Jacob married Leah and Rachel, polygamy was the norm and marriage was an alliance between men to buy and sell women, not a commitment to share life together. In Graeco-Roman times, monogamy became the norm because the dominant culture considered polygamy to be barbaric. There is no single biblical approach to marriage. The Bible can be found in error, where its practices do not stand up to ethical scrutiny.
Genesis 29: 15-26
