Abraham and Sarah
I know that it is taught that the patriarchs kept the whole Torah, but the Torah says this about Abraham:

Quote:Gen. 20:12
And also, indeed, she is my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife.

Yet the Torah forbids this:

Quote:Lev. 18:9
The nakedness of your sister, whether your father's daughter or your mother's daughter,whether born to one who may remain in the home or born to one who must be sent outside you shall not uncover their nakedness.

Does this mean Abraham broke Torah law by marring his sister?
