Sex is a major focus for the Bible rules, and in this episode, we find some of the more surprising commands in the Bible, including one that warns a woman against grabbing the crotch of an attacking man in order to defend her husband. The penalty? If she grabs, she gets her hand cut off. For people today, that sounds harsh. But once we start to decode the world in which this law is set, investigating everything from Greek statues to mortality rates, we gain a new understanding of the reality of human sexual relations three thousand years ago.
