Murder and the Bible

The old testament is a fantastic, mad story, but in its evocation of the most incisive and pitiful truths, it is like a mad shaman who screams with psychotic ideation ala LSD while glimpsing the stellar hells of our lives.

The second major story in the Bible, in which humans interact, is the story of Cain killing Abel.   It is the story of murder.  All the sins ensue from this murder.  The bible is primarily meant to tell us this:  Do not kill your Brother.

The primacy of murder in the order of events in the bible is meant to reveal the primacy of hate and aggression and murder as our moral culprits.
