Leviticus 18:16, (DRB):
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's wife: because it is the nakedness of thy brother.
Deuteronomy 25:5-10, (DRB):
Widowhood and Marriage 5When brethren dwell together, and one of them dieth without children, the wife of the deceased shall not marry to another: but his brother shall take her, and raise up seed for his brother: 6And the first son he shall have of her he shall call by his name, that his name be not abolished out of Israel. 7But if he will not take his brother's wife, who by law belongeth to him, the woman shall go to the gate of the city, and call upon the ancients, and say: My husband's brother refuseth to raise up his brother's name in Israel: and will not take me to wife. 8And they shall cause him to be sent for forthwith, and shall ask him. If he answer: I will not take her to wife: 9The woman shall come to him before the ancients, and shall take off his shoe from his foot, and spit in his face, and say: So shall it be done to the man that will not build up his brother's house: 10And his name shall be called in Israel, the house of the unshod.
Lev 18:16 is NOT discussing an adulterous relationship with a man's sister-in-law while the brother is still alive, for the adulterous relationship is forbidden with any woman!, while the husband is alive or after his death!. Are the adulterous relationship, or MARRIAGE of stepmother is allowed after FATHER'S DEATH?
Thus, Leviticus 18:16 is explicitly discussing MARRIAGE of your Sister-in-law after the death of your Brother.
The Main Question:
Does Deuteronomy 25:5-10 supersede Leviticus 18:16 or vice versa?
Supersede=cancel, call off, replace, or displace.
Queries may help in clarification of my point of view:
There are two reasons contradict each other:
- The Nakedness of the Brother shouldn't be uncovered.
- Raising up seed for the deceased Brother.
Thus, to raise up seed for the deceased Brother, the living Brother should uncover the nakedness of his deceased Brother. Is this reasonable?
Could we use the same Idea with the nakedness of the Uncle?
Is there a difference between The nakedness of the Brother and the nakedness of the Uncle or the nakedness of the Father?
Could a nephew marry a divorced wife of his alive Uncle?
Is the Order of the Books of Torah correct?
Could we consider the teaching of Jesus regarding Divorce and Marriage a going back to Leviticus?
Thus, I hope you Correct me if I am Wrong.
