How should God's people live toward each other? The OT assumes that we will fight, and badly hurt each other. In the NT, God calls us to live in peace (and gives us his Spirit so we can).
We live in a time, and a place, when violent people do violent things all the time. The world as a whole feels unsafe, and it feels like it's getting worse. Every day, we get updates about some new terrible act of violence, and we go through life just sort of constantly thinking about it.
