What We Learn from Slavery Passages

What We Learn from Slavery Passages

Marlin takes a look at slavery passages in the New Testament.

"My point is not to make slavery look less bad, but to see what these texts teach us about our own work, whatever our economic situation."

"New Testament advice to slaves reminds us that, whatever our economic situation,

  1. God values and will reward all legitimate work, and
  2. Our work and economic lives should reflect Kingdom generosity and the way of the cross."

Marlin Sommers serves various roles with Anabaptist Perspectives and works with another non-profit. Marlin and his wife are raising four children in Southeast TN. See more of Marlin’s work at www.marlin.work
