Justice in the New Testament
Matthew | Luke | 2 Corinthians | Colossians
This summer, our lessons focus on justice as presented in the New Testament. Justice is portrayed as a primary characteristic of God's nature. Human beings are called to emulate God's justice toward one another. The writer for the student book is Randy Cross; the writer for the teacher book is David Mosser.
God Is Just and Merciful
The four lessons in this unit remind us that human interpretations of the Law must not conflict with mercy and justice as acted out in our daily lives. The lessons from Matthew look at conflicts between Jesus and the Pharisees on questions of mercy and justice. The lesson from Luke looks at how God dispenses justice and mercy.
Jesus Calls for Justice and Mercy
The five lessons in this unit explore Jesus' teachings on God's justice in Matthew and Luke. Included is Jesus' demand for leaders to practice justice as well as to understand the universality of God's justice and mercy.
Paul Teaches About New Life in Christ
Paul's teachings about just and merciful behaviors from 2 Corinthians and Colossians are the focus of the four lessons in this unit. Those who live the new life in Christ are called to imitate God's just and merciful nature through their actions toward others, including their enemies.
