The law of the Jubilee year in Leviticus 25 is all encompassing.
And you shall consecrate the year that makes 50 years and proclaim liberty throughout the land, to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you! And you shall go back, each to his possession; and you shall go back, each to his family.” (Lev 25:10)
In other words, everything is redeemed and restored: possessions; persons, that is indentured servants; houses sold during the jubilee period; and land & property—all returned to their original owners. Another one of Yahweh’s brilliant laws to protect the indigent and less fortunate, and to ward against private possessions, greed, and the financial interests of the more affluent in society, left to rot and neglect by the very people in today’s society claiming to be Yahweh’s people! But alas, that’s another story.
The point I wish to make presently is that this jubilee law with regards to the indentured Hebrew servant is also all encompassing.
“He [your indentured brother] shall work for you until the jubilee year. And he shall go out from you, he and his children with him, and go back to his family, and he shall go back to his father’s possessions.” (Lev 25:40-41)
The fact that the Priestly writer’s Yahweh’s Jubilee is all encompassing contradicts the older Elohist’s Yahweh (Ex 21:4) wherein it is stipulated that if the master of the indentured Hebrew gave him a wife during his servitude and they had children, then the wife and children remain the possession of the master when the male servant is released after 6 years, not 50 (#140)! But again, the jubilee law of Leviticus seems to trump this. Of course, the Exodus law code then proceeds to state that out of love for his wife and children the indentured Hebrew can remain a slave forever, i.e., to remain with his wife and children. But this too contradicts the Jubilee which requires all persons, property, and possessions to be restored on the jubilee year.
For more slavery contradictions be sure to check out #139-140 too.
