Man picking up sticks

Today’s Bible story is from Numbers 15:32-36.

A man is gathering sticks one day in the wilderness when he is found by some Israelites that are not very happy.

They are not very happy at all.

It’s the Sabbath. They are so incredibly not happy about him gathering sticks on the Sabbath that they decide to give him the death penalty immediately (no Miranda rights, no lawyer, no trial, no deathrow) which at the time involved pelting a person’s body with hard objects until he stops breathing (or at least not too much longer afterwards).
