Theme for the Quarter
JUSTICE IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
In this quarter, justice is portrayed as a primary characteristic of God’s nature.
Human beings are called to emulate God’s justice toward one another.
The units remind us that: Human interpretations of the Law must not conflict with mercy and justice as acted out in our daily lives; Jesus’ teachings on God’s justice include Him calling the leaders to practice and understand the universality of God’s justice and mercy; and
Paul teaches about just and merciful behaviors.
