Num 15:32-37 And
while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man
that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.
And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and
Aaron, and unto all the congregation.
And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be
done to him.
And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death:
all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp.
And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him
with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses.
Yes it was against the rules to work on the sabbath, but was it that
serious that he had to be killed?
