Yigal:

"We must be very careful of assuming that the authors of the Bible shared the
same views on "morality" that modern-day Jews and Christians do. This is
especially true for matters of sexual behavior."

The question is, how much of the modern mores are based on Biblical
ones? In other words, how well have people understood the Biblical
ones and translated them into their own? Or how much of the modern
understanding are taken from contemporary mores and eisegeted back
into Hebrew?
