This course will trace the multi-faceted theme of justice as it unfolds throughout the biblical story. Beginning with an exploration of the impact our own place and assumpions have on our reading, we will then probe the complicated ways in which idolatry, economic justice, racial justice, justice for the land, food justice, justice for the stranger and the migrant, gender justice, colonization and Indigenous justice, and peace and violence permeate the story. This will provide a biblical basis for reflecting on the complexity and challenge of enacting justice and reconciliation in our world today.
