Why did the District Attorney bring this incident, classified as a misdemeanor, to the court? Why, when the state's evidence seemed to absolve the accused, was the case prosecuted?

What is our task in it as human beings in relation to ourselves, our families, our compatriots, the human race, and the world itself? How do the days of creation unfold into the days, years, and generations of human history? What is special about Israel, and what are the limits of that quality? What can we learn about the achievements and failings of the Biblical heroes and heroines to guide our own lives?
