I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment Was only the woman to be scourged in Leviticus 19:20?
-1 because I think you've confused the issue more than clarified it. The issue of source document families is either nearly irrelevant to the question or it IS the question. An answer that brings clarity would determine if there are manuscript differences involved in the translation of this passage and exactly what they are.

comment Did the Romans (and Jewish law) allow the Jewish authorities to execute?
The original version didn't mention Romans at all but it did ask whether the Jews had the right to execute which requires data on the legal system they were subject to not just whether is was part of their internal system. This isn't a non-answer, it's just incomplete and I think this question could use a more exhaustive review of the issue.

comment Did the Romans (and Jewish law) allow the Jewish authorities to execute?
The information on Jewish law is useful but in order to really resolve this question we need more than speculation about the Roman side of things. Without some actual data for that half of the equation this is unsatisfactory in my estimation of the question.
