“Social Justice” in the Old & New Testaments of the Holy Bible (Revised)

“Social Justice” in the Old & New Testaments of the Holy Bible (Revised)

Ratings: (0)|Views: 102|Likes:
A case is made, using selected scriptures, mainly from the Old Testament of the Judeo-Christian Bible, that this set of ancient texts, although rarely seen as such, thunderously roars with sacred authority for a society and all social and economic relations to be founded upon the principles of equality, solidarity, “social justice,” and an end of all forms of social oppression, and that these texts clearly affirm the inalienable right of every person on earth, regardless of religion or faith, to develop all aspects of their human development and spiritual potential.

 Before the
 French Revolution,
the
 Russian Revolution,
before the
 Anti-Colonial Wars of  Independence in Africa,
the
Caribbean, Mexico
and
 India,
before the
 Abolition Movement 
andthe
 Anti-Slavery Movement 
, before the
Civil Rights Movement of Dr./Rev. King 
and 100s of thousands of others that cried for justice and an end to bigotry and
de jure
segregation, beforethe
Chicana/o Movement 
and the
 American Indian Movement,
 before the
Women's Suffrage Movement,
before
 Marxism
,
contemporary Liberation Theology
, and twentieth centurysocialism and feminism, ……there existed a set of radical ancient texts that thunderously roared with sacred authority for a society and all social and economic relations founded upon the principles of 
equality,solidarity,
and “social justice,” emphasizing that every person, regardless of the class or community they were born into, is endowed by their Creator with an indestructible dignity, aDivinity infused within their body temples, a Divinity linking all people as family—all sharingthe same Divine Origin,--Indeed!, there exists a set of radical ancient texts calling for an end of all forms of “social oppression,” while affirming the inalienable right of every person on earth,regardless of religion or faith, to develop all aspects of their human development and spiritual potential; that set of revolutionary texts?
The Old & New Testaments of Judeo-Christian Bible
. ….In spite of known errors in many of the
 Aramaic & Hebrew-to-Greek 
translations, in spiteof the scandalous revisions and political pressures to alter certain texts, and the elimination of other texts in constructing the New Testament (during the
Council of Nicaea
of 325 AD), thecall and commandment for 
 social justice
remained intact and inarguably clear.

Isaiah 58:6-12
: “Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undothe straps of the yoke
 ,
 
…to let the oppressed go free!!!, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry (?) and bring the homeless poor into your house(?); …….when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and he will say, ‘ 
 Here I am
.’  If you take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,……. if you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, then shall  your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. ...

, the latter prophets. Many of the New Testamentteachings of Jesus refer to the book of Isaiah.The first 39 chapters prophesy doom for a sinfulJudahand for all the nations of the worldthat oppose God, while the last 27 prophesy the restoration of the nation of Israel and a newcreation in God's glorious future kingdom;[1]this section includes theSongs of the Suffering Servant, four separate passages referring to the nation of Israel, interpreted byChristiansas  prefiguringthe coming of Jesus Christ.
