Lecture: “The Journeys of Jesus and Jewish Geography” from Simon Gathercole

Peter Williams - October 30, 2015

Does the Bible Support Slavery?

Over the years the Bible has been quoted in support of both abolishing slavery and keeping slaves. Today people often object to the Bible as a document that supports slavery. In his lecture, Peter Williams examines the key Old Testament and New Testament texts involved and looks at the Biblical words commonly associated with slavery and how their translation has changed over time. He also looks at the logic of the Old Testament world and the way ancient societies were structured quite differently from ours.
