This is a four-week class I’m leading with a local Adjunct Professor at William Jessup University. The class gives participants an overview of social justice from the perspective of the biblical story. Week one looks at what social justice is. Week two explores social justice in the Old Testament. Week three explores social justice in the New Testament. And week four explores a number of significant social justice questions facing the church today.

Click here to download the PDF of the PPT I used for this class: Week One – Introducing Social Justice. Because it meets on Sunday’s it is only an hour long class. The textbook we are using for this class is called, “The Justice Calling” by Bethany Hanke Hoang and Kristen Deede Johnson. Kristen is a professor at the seminary I’m doing a Doctor of Ministry at.

This was the last week of my four week class on the life and teaching of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.. I will miss spending time each week in his writings, in the history of the modern Civil Rights Movement, and with this class as we discussed, listened to, and watched his sermons and speeches.

Our class had a great experience moving through MLK’s first pastorate, the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and other Civil Rights moments of note. Next week we will finish our look at his work, his assassination, and then begin to study some of his key sermons.
