God is always on behalf of -- on the side of -- the oppressed. Dr. Cyndi Parker


Are the current racial justice protests in the USA and around the world fulfilling the Biblical and Judeo-Christian call to a just and moral society? Or do they tear down the very foundations of a stable and righteous community, encouraging lawless behavior and anarchy?

Does the Bible itself help to create liberty or slavery? injustice or equity? ethnic oppression or cross-cultural love? What does history tell us?

How have African American Christians and Jews drawn inspiration from the Bible in their unique and often painful circumstances?

What do Biblical texts have to say about reparations for historic wrongs such as slavery?

Listen to an outstanding expert in the field grapple with these questions and more! Dr. John Eaves is both African-American and Jewish. A Biblical scholar and active politician, he also chairs the Racial Justice Committee of The Temple, Atlanta’s storied Reform synagogue. 

The discussion was hosted by IBC faculty members Dr. Yeshaya Gruber and Dr. Cyndi Parker.
