1st. First I am curious about whether or not she was raped. My Oxford Annotated bible says "yes" but also mentions many scholars say "no". The story sends a completely different message depending on this word. 2nd. were Simon and Levi's anger justified 3rd.(if Dinah was not raped) Was Shechem doing the right thing by offering to "make attonments". 4th (If Dinah was raped) Why was Shechem trying to marry her? Was it a cover up? Maybe he was trying to get into Jacob's pockets? 5th Why was Jacob angery with Simon and Levi. Was their revenge taking it too far? Did he not know about the rape? Was he more concerned about his relations with the surrounding cities? Lastly what can we learn from this?
