Digging Deeper: Ethnicity, Justice, and the People of God
May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This online video class is taught by Professor N.T. Wright and Professor Esau McCaulley.
Ethnicity, Justice, and the People of God represents the thought of two world-class biblical scholars who throughout their careers have shared a commitment to reviving overlooked emphases of biblical justice in the public imagination. This course traces various strands of thought regarding ethnicity and justice throughout history and the various responses people in the Church have offered. Along the way, both scholars highlight scriptural resources to aid believers in witnessing to injustice and practical possibilities for participating in God’s vision to put all things right.
Historically, some in the Church have used the scriptures and their faith to enable, uphold, and embolden structures of injustice. However, these same scriptures and faith have been used by others in the Church to respond to and resist these systems. By affirming that from the very beginning, God’s plan for New Creation was a gathering of diverse peoples to all share in the divine story, in different but compatible ways, Prof.’s McCauley & Wright encourage students to deepen their understanding of how race, justice, and faith come together in the life of God’s people.
