Document Struggles for Justice in an Ambiguous World
Bible study on 1 Kings 21:1-22 by Sarojini Nadar for the WCC Assembly, 6 November 2013: The story of Naboth’s vineyard challenges the concept of justice in our society. It introduces God’s justice for the affirmation of life, a measure beyond the economic logic of King Ahab in the name of efficiency and productivity. The text can also guide us in dealing with current issues of injustice in the global market and in discerning how to live out God’s justice to safeguard life.
