How we talk about how justice—and just about anything—looks different depending on our vantage point. Texts that appear one way to one person or group are totally different when looked at from a slightly different position.Join us as visiting professor Tammi J. Schneider (Claremont Graduate School) leads us in conversation over the question “What is justice?” using the case of Sarah and Hagar as a starting point. In this seminar, we look at the story of Sarah and Hagar through the lens of four different textual traditions—ancient Near Eastern law codes, Hebrew Bible, New Testament, and Quran—then place these sources in comparative perspective.
