Dr. Michael Rhodes of Union University speaks about the radical economic principles begun in the Torah and worked out in the prophets and teaching Jesus and Paul. Topics include:
- The problem with objectifying “the poor”.
- How our wealth corrupts our view of economics.
- The power of Jubilee.
- How the biblical authors use “inclusion” and economic leveling in response to sin.
- How Paul’s letter to the Corinthians reflects Hebraic economics.
Much of this discussion also references his book written with Brian Fikkert and Robbie Holt: Practicing the King’s Economy Honoring Jesus in How We Work, Earn, Spend, Save, and Give.
