In medieval times the left hand was the one people used to wipe their asses, so they used their right hand for everything else
If i was going to slap somebody and they turned their head forcing me to use my super special awesome golden hand....i`d just kick them instead
Most people think it means "If someone slaps you, turn away".
It goes further though, technically meaning "If someone slaps you or tries to slap you (on your right cheek) let them slap your left".
The reason for this is that someone wouldn`t slap you with their right hand, because it is the holy hand. They`d only slap you with their left.
Thus by showing them your other cheek, you are forcing them to use their "Holy" hand, and you force them to think about what they are doing.
Basically "Go ahead, if you think this is the right thing to do, slap me with your holy hand".
Most religious Jews at the time wouldn`t.
It`s basically a free lesson in morality you`re handing out, not just a "don`t fight back".
In the interest of self-defense, I see his point so kill `em quickly and don`t let `em suffer.
Coincidently I wonder if i could get a pocket knife with a cross in it, you know to help against demons and what not, or have keanu reeves face pop out.
you cracked me right up.
and lol @ poo too.
I`m just saying...
And the description reads "but imagine what you can do with a Star of David".
Star of David is Jewish.
The association of a weapon and a star leads inevitably to ninjas.
Hence, jewish ninja.
By the way, I suggest seeing a doctor about your uncontrollable laughing. There`s probably a medical problem underlying it.
Cut the other cheek!
