What does the Bible say about justice and how does the Bible’s definition of justice compare to modern theories about justice? This is the topic Wes McAdams and special guest, Steven Cuffle, will be discussing in this two-part conversation. In this first episode, Wes and Steven discuss the various aspects of justice in both the Old and New Testaments.

These are the four aspects of biblical justice that are discussed in this episode:

  1. Personal Accountability
  2. Fairness
  3. Collective Responsibility
  4. Generosity

How did God expect rulers and government officials in ancient Israel to administer justice? How did God expect ancient Israelites to practice justice in their daily life? And how does justice factor into our understanding of the Gospel and Christian living?
