Ownership and Property in the Old Testament Economy
What are your thoughts on eminent domain? Should a society have the power to take private property for some other use? Does a government have a right to collect property taxes? Biblical law shows quite a different wisdom in such matters. The Lord is exclusively sovereign. Every human and their government is only given a dominion as stewards, and thus answerable to God. Dr. Kaiser survey's the themes of ownership and property in the old testament economy. God's Law shows all nations the depths of divine wisdom and reminds us where true social and economic stability relies.
This is a session from the Theology of Work and Economics Consultations and is a lecture from the 2011 National Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society on the theme, “No Other Name.” The conference featured plenary speakers: Darrell Bock, Tim Tennant, and Kelly Kapic.
