Biblical law – People & land by Jonathan Burnside

Law and narrative work together to regulate the relationship between people and land. A key aspect of this narrative is divine ownership, which impacts on the practice of land ownership.

The main focus will be on the ‘spectrum of sabbaths’ in biblical law, including the weekly sabbath, the sabbatical year and the jubilee year.
