Property Rights in the Old Testament II

Session 11 - Friday, June 23 - 3:45 PM to 5:05 PM

Intensive Course

This course will focus on the important role that private property plays in the Old Testament (excluding the Pentateuch which is covered in a previous section) especially in relationship to family, kinship, and social cohesion. It will examine the normative texts on property and wealth creation from the historical books through the end of the OT and the critique by the prophets of economic injustice and oppression. This course will examine the interrelationship of these two dimensions and raise questions of contemporary relevance.
