Being Left Handed
There were indeed some left handed people in Scripture. Even though Scripture mostly talks about the right hand of the Lord because the right hand is usually the dominant that is not a knock to lefties. There are even some advantages of being left handed and I think it is very unique as well. Judges Seven hundred of these trained soldiers were left-handed , each of whom could sling a stone at a hair and not miss! The Israelites, except for the Benjaminites, gathered , soldiers with swords. Judges When the people cried to the Lord, he sent someone to save them. He was Ehud, son of Gera from the people of Benjamin, who was left-handed.
What does the Bible say about? Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, Then I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals. By truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left;. God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.
There are only three mentions of left-handed people in the Bible—and all of them refer to members of the tribe of Benjamin, including their deadly accurate slingers see drawing above. Were these people from the tribe of Benjamin left-handed by nature or nurture? Modern studies in the genetics of left-handedness may be able to shed light on this curious case.
