73.2 - Johnny Ramírez-Johnson on Keeping the Sabbath Holy & John Goldingay on Praying for Justice
In their lectures delivered at the 2015 Fuller Forum, Johnny Ramírez-Johnson, professor of anthropology and profesor del Centro Latino, reflected on how the divine command to keep the Sabbath is tied to every dimension of Christian life and community; and John Goldingay, David Allan Hubbard Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, spoke about the need to pray on behalf of the oppressed and how the Psalms help us do so. The 2015 Fuller Forum explored the themes of justice, grace, and law and how each shapes our understanding of the church’s relationship with God and the church’s ministry in the world. Joined by Fuller scholars and other guests, renowned Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann, featured as the conference’s keynote speaker. Author of over a hundred books, he is the William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary.
