The Old Testament Theology of Work: The Original Unity of Work and Worship in the Bible

Session 3
Advanced Course

Much has been written about socio-economic justice in the Bible and the teaching of the Church, but the biblical theology of human work is an under-developed area of theological research and education.  Dr. Bergsma addresses this need by a close reading of the creation narratives of Genesis, identifying themes associated with the human person and human labor, and tracing those themes through the rest of the Old Testament and into the ministry and teaching of Jesus.  The Scriptures present us with an original unity of man’s work and worship, and that the division of these two is, in part, the result of sin.  Thus, they also call us to a re-integration of work and worship, labor and liturgy, which should be reflected in a distinctly Christian lifestyle.
