@IsaacMoses Thanks. Honestly, it was the first thing I thought of when I saw it. I actually hadn't realized the b'kever Manoach aviv part until I went digging. I should look up what real commentators said about this...

comment What is the ruling of adultery in Torah or Tanach
So, though you might have different motives for limiting your questions, it might make sense to broaden your them by source but limit them by time. E.g., "What was the punishment for X during the time of the first Jews?"

comment What is the ruling of adultery in Torah or Tanach
Just fyi, limiting your questions to Torah or Tanakh does not allow an honest response to these questions. The Oral Law is considered just as important and binding as the Written Law and must be included when talking about actual practice. In addition, there have been many works whose teachings have become canonical (Rashi's commentary, Rambam's Mishneh Torah, and Joseph Karo's Shulchan Aruch are the clearest examples).
