Blog 5 of Lent: Tattoos, and why understanding the culture of the Bible is so important.

Published February 17, 2016 by thinkinbout

How much do you love these uncreative titles for these blogs? 🙂

I don’t have any tattoos, but in my 20s, I sure did want a bunch. I never could afford one though, so it never happened. Of course, I always had Leviticus 19:28 (NIV) in the back of my mind: “Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.” So maybe that was a deterrent too, but I think mostly it was because I couldn’t afford it.

I found this video that explains the verse and, again, why understanding the culture of the Bible is so important.
