Correction ~' The Foundation' (first post) What was it about two score save-one, anyway?

The Foundation ~ first post ~ correction ...... in ref to number of stripes to be administered ; the correct number was 40, which is, in fact two score (20 times 2). The Jews however, would not wish to break the law , therefore they would administer two score-save - one, which is where we get the number 39 stripes. What I do not understand is that the number 39 is not 40 either, therefore it is not correct as far as what the law of Moses demands. It's kinda like trying to give $3,900 for that very used vehicle , when the seller has already declared the terms to be $4,000 firm. Do we really think God winked at that? According to the book of Hebrews, maybe He did. Anyways ... I am glad I finally got that off my chest. Thanks for listening, (and no I am not being Knit-picky) Thank you for bringing this teeny typo to our attention :) We know 'every dot and tittle' was fulfilled in HIM. The Law no longer applies even to the Jew :-) At least that what God says about it. Thank you for indulging me.....That was therapeutic. ( ~now someone will sleep much better tonight )
