Economic Thought in the Bible
Mar 25th, 2020 by centerforhebraicthought
Dr. Michael Rhodes of Union University speaks about the radical economic principles begun in the Torah and worked out in the prophets and teaching Jesus and Paul. Topics include:
- The problem with objectifying "the poor".
- How our wealth corrupts our view of economics.
- The power of Jubilee.
- How the biblical authors use "inclusion" and economic leveling in response to sin.
- How Paul's letter to the Corinthians reflects Hebraic economics.
Much of this discussion also references his book written with Brian Fikkert and Robbie Holt: Practicing the King's Economy Honoring Jesus in How We Work, Earn, Spend, Save, and Give.
