About the Event
From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible proclaims justice and prosperity for the poor. Nevertheless, the Bible is often interpreted in ways that justify inaction in the face of poverty, state that poverty is eternal, and claim that if God wanted to end poverty, God would do so. Rarely in our public discussion or our congregations is there reference to the truly radical economic teachings of the Bible and the call for abundant life for absolutely all.
Join the Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, director of the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice at Union Theological Seminary and co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival for this four-part online Bible study. Sessions will include attention to “the poor will be with you always,” “if you do not work, you shall not eat,” “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s,” and other biblical roadblocks for a more just society. Come engage in rich discussion of what the Bible really says about the poor, prosperity, and justice and what we are called to do in this moment in history about it.
