Mishpat

presented on Aug 20, 2016

Today we’ll uncover how justice was an idea that God led people through; an idea that was moving toward redemption. We’ll look at
how Israel was tempted to misuse their power to bring about justice - to use their power to oppress and hold dominion over those
they disagreed with rather than bring the other in for reconciliation.
We’ll look at some words that have been commonly mistranslated and often used to marginalize and oppress the ostracized within
our communities. Well seek to learn more from these ancients words by first placing them within their proper context and then doing
the hard work of applying it to our lives today.
