A Biblical Ethic of Kinship: Christ’s Invitation to Belonging
BIBL 558 • 1–2 Credits (1 Audit)
Though many think of kinship as a blood tie, Scripture calls the people of God to a broader and transformative understanding of family. Retrieve an ethic of kinship from the Pentateuch, the Gospels, and the Pauline Epistles. Explore how this vision might be embodied within households and worshipping communities. Creatively imagine how this ethic of joining might energize creative neighbourhood engagement in life, word, and deed. And use the resources of political theology to probe how this vision can mobilize the church to advocate both for a just society and a just global community where every person can flourish.
