Winter 2021 Justice, Law, History Unit 2 – God: The Source of Justice
This unit has five lessons that focus on God’s justice in the lives of God’s people and in the gift of the Law. Stories in Genesis reveal God’s justice in the face of human injustice. Included are stories of Cain’s murder of his brother Abel as well as Hagar and Ishmael being cast out of Abraham’s household. Exodus demands justice for all people including one’s enemies. In Deuteronomy, judges, officials, and priests work together to administer justice for God’s people In particular, Deuteronomy demands justice for marginalized people.
Lesson 5 Justice, Vengeance, and Mercy
Unjustified and uncontrolled anger has consequences. God punished Cain because he allowed his anger to turn to rage and then to murder.
Lesson 6 Injustice and Hope
People sometimes face situations that feel hopeless. Genesis shows that even though Hagar and Ishmael’s circumstances changed, God was still with them.
Lesson 7 Justice and Fairness
It can be tempting to treat friends with more leniency and enemies with more harshness than they deserve. But God demands justice for all people, including one’s enemies.
Lesson 8 Justice, Judges, and Priests
Distortions and manipulations of justice are nothing new. Yet the ancient book of Deuteronomy still provides principles to remedy this problem.
Lesson 9 Justice and the Marginalized
Deuteronomy demands justice for all, including those who are poor or otherwise marginalized.
