We return in this episode to the series we had started on the so called Bible Atrocities and will start to address the question, “Doesn’t the Bible condone slavery?!” Answering this question may take 3 to 4 episodes as we explore the cultural and historical contexts of Ancient Israel, examine some of the casuistic (case) laws in the Pentateuch, investigate how the New Testament addresses the issue of slavery and servitude in light of the person and work of Jesus Christ found in the Gospel and then wrap up considering the role that Bible played in the New World African slave trade.
