define the main interpretive implication for the reader of the law codes in the Torah and the narratives that surround them
how is the text’s meaning changed or affected by how it connects law codes with the surrounding narratives and other narratives with the Torah? You must defend, clarify and explain the law codes as a part of the story that surrounds it. How do the narratives comment on the law codes? How do the law codes comment on the narratives? Why are they both in the Torah?
Your thread should begin with your claim (thesis) that answers the questions above. After this first sentence, make your argument by examining one to three law code and narrative situations that show that your thesis (claim) is correct. In this argument, you must defend, clarify and explain your thesis concerning the meaning of how the author puts together the law codes and the narratives.
