God, Justice, and Society: Aspects of Law and Legality in the Bible
Jonathan Burnside , January 2011
Out now - EXCLUSIVE to Jubilee Centre!
What is the real meaning of 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth'? Where did the idea for the 'Jubilee 2000' and 'Drop the Debt' campaigns come from? And what, really, are the 'Ten Commandments'? Exploring aspects of law in the Bible, from the patriarchal narratives in the Hebrew Bible through to the trials of Jesus in the New Testament, Dr Burnside's 584-page book
- Explores the subject of biblical law, which is foundational for understanding Western civilisation and the history of Western law
- Discusses how biblical law works in relation to different areas including the environment, property, social welfare, homicide, theft, and marriage
- Challenges popular misunderstandings about the story of Mount Sinai and the giving of the Ten Commandments, as well as the interpretation of specific verses such as 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.'
