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.

the churches in Latin America, Northern Ireland, and South Africa have wrestled with this issue in their own social and political contexts. Attention is also given to Canada'a TRC process with its indigenous peoples. The course will explore the complexity involved in the relationship between violence and forgiveness, particularly as this relates to the concept of Justice in Christian ethics, an understanding of €œcommunity,€ and the formation of the moral subject. Some attention will be given to the emotional and spiritual tensions that individuals face when confronted with the complexities involved in living through periods of conflict and reconciliation.

Basic degree students enrol in WYT3995HF

COLLEGE: Wycliffe College SCHEDULE: Mon TIME: 14:00 to 17:00

CREDITS: One Credit

This course will (1) look at the key texts and themes in the NT on ethical matters; (2) see how the early church (100-450) worked with these but also how it related the NT teaching to that of the OT, Jewish ethics and the classical philosophical ethics, and how it adapted its moral theology to its ever-changing circumstances; (3) assess the question of authority and interpretation of scripture and early Christian writings for church and society today. The course will cover a number of major themes present in the New Testament’s ‘ethical teaching’ across a range of the canon and will continue (in each second half of the session) with how the thinking changed and/or remained constant, was weakened or intensified by the likes of the Apostolic Fathers, the Apologists, Alexandrian and North African theologians, early Byzantine and Latin fathers.
