This course will explore the roots of justice and determine what this foundational concept meant in the lives of our biblical ancestors. The meaning of biblical justice will be determined by studying the concept in various sections of Scripture, e.g., the creation accounts in Genesis, the Exodus and sections of covenant legislation in the Torah, prophetic literature, wisdom literature, the gospel of Luke, Pauline and apocalyptic literature. Implications of biblical justice for the church and world today will be discussed.
