An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth: this is an expression we may have heard in movie punch dialogues and some fiery speeches by political leaders. Have you ever thought about the origin of this famous expression? At least some people believe that it first appeared in the Old Testament of the Bible. However, this ideology of rewarding or punishing people according to their actions did not originate from the Bible. This is a sentence from the Code of Hammurabi, which directly or indirectly influenced the Ten Commandments of Moses and the modern laws that exist in nations worldwide.
It is really interesting to know that this "eye for an eye" wasn't really from the mosaic piece. It is really an eye opening.
