Biblical law in the 21st century

The Bible is said to be the most important book for making sense of Western civilisation and biblical law is one of its foundations. Whether it’s the idea of a shared day of rest, the constraints put upon political authority, the idea of mercy or employee rights, biblical law has a claim to historical influence that’s unmatched by any other ancient legal system. But what does it mean to think about its nature and character today? 
With Jonathan Burnside, Michael Naughton, Julian Rivers, Donald Shell and Chris Willmore.

    Great podcast – thank you very much… love the choir!

  2. Shaz says:

    Enjoyed it very much especially the point “ people before law”, there is a need for common sense in certain esoteric conditions where its not black and white and the case needs individual attention!

  3. This site caught my attention: Because Seeking Justice is real to me and my family. Seeking Justice to me is Truth and if we follow Truth we Shall be Set Free. As a believer Truth is to be obedient to Law and we have Life. The Law brings forth Life. so when we go through an injust we suffer death and thats a crime. In God We Trust i continue to Trust In God and Seek Justice for that is freedom.
