Students in the inaugural In Search of Biblical Justice class at the John Leland Center for Theological Studies share reflections on their exploration of Biblical Justice, lessons learned, and the impact on their ministries going forward.


Kelly Anderson

Taking this course has completely changed the way I define justice. Now, justice, to me, is that motivating factor for us as people that sets us into action when we see something that is not in alignment with the way it is supposed to be. Justice is also not a conceivable goal if done individualistically. We, as a community of faith, must have the eyes to see and the ears to hear where there is suffering and oppression.”

“These lectures have caused me to think more deeply about what being made in the image of God and just relations mean with respect to how we live our day-to-day lives. The entire course was a reminder and encouragement to go below the surface of Scripture to uncover and apply its real import.”

“This course has challenged me to further dive into the teachings of the Old Testament where we see justice defined and emphasized. As a Christ-follower, justice should matter to me because it matters to our Creator God. This course is relevant and vital because it tugs at the heart of God. As the term justice gets thrown around often in our culture, we Christians ought to be quick to point out that our God cares about justice, and we see evidence of this in Scripture.”

“This course has deepened my commitment to reconciliation and justice. I hope over the long term to start an initiative that creates space for Christians to come together across cultural, political, and socio-economic divides to learn to ‘love one another as Christ loved us.’ From this place, we as a group of diverse believers would pursue justice together.”

“‘Biblical Justice’ is a social imperative established in Genesis, and demonstrated throughout the Old and New Testaments, with implications essential to our lives, and frankly social and public safety today. Every profession would gain valuable insight into the concept of ‘Social Justice,’ what it means, and how best to enact ‘Biblical Justice’ from their discipline. Collectively, we can all create a better, more humane, and just society, as envisioned by the Father for his creation.”
