The Bible and Human Rights

Presenter: John J. Collins

The Bible does not have a discourse of human rights, but it contributed to the development of such a discourse insofar as it shows a concern for the weaker members of society that is grounded in common humanity. Dr. Collins discusses some of the ramifications of the biblical idea of justice, the love commandment in Leviticus and the New Testament, and the Pauline pronouncement that there is no longer Jew or Greek, slave or free, or male and female.
