Capital punishment was instituted when God told Adam and Eve “...in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Genesis 9:6 also references capital punishment by stating, “Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed.” Exodus 21:12 echoes this saying with...   [tags: Jesus Christ and the Death Penalty]
