An Exploration into a Biblical Theology of Justice.

Ethnicity, Justice, and the People of God represents the thought of two world-class biblical scholars who throughout their careers have shared a commitment to reviving overlooked emphases of biblical justice in the public imagination. This course traces various strands of thought regarding ethnicity and justice throughout history and the various responses people in the Church have offered. Along the way, both scholars highlight scriptural resources to aid believers in witnessing to injustice and practical possibilities for participating in God’s vision to put all things
