Anabaptist Short Course: Exploring Peace and Justice in the Bible
In this class, we will study six pertinent biblical passages (three OT and three NT) and reflect individually and collectively on what these texts contribute to a robust and biblically-based practice of peace and justice today. These texts will also help us focus on several key issues such as the relationship between peace and justice, how God acts for peace and justice, and the question of how should we act. Do we claim nonviolence, nonresistance, active resistance or something else?
This course is taught by Drew Strait, PhD, Assistant Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at AMBS and Susannah Larry, PhD, Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies at AMBS.
This course runs from Sept. 15 - Oct. 26, 2021.
