Justice in the New Testament
Matthew | Luke | 2 Corinthians | Colossians
This summer, Daily Bible Study presents a series of readings following the theme "Justice in the New Testament." Readings come from Old and New Testament texts. These daily readings, which prepare us for the 13 lessons in Adult Bible Studies, are written by Randy Cross, Betty Newman, and Clara Welch.

Daily readings in this four-week unit focus on justice and sabbath laws, parables of God's just kingdom, Jesus' teachings about justice, and reaping God's justice.
Jesus Calls for Justice and Mercy
This five-week unit features readings related to forgiveness, Jesus'; criticism of unjust leaders, persistence in pursuing justice, entering God's kingdom, and God's invitation to everyone to "the Great Dinner."
Paul Teaches About New Life in Christ
