GOD THE JUDGE AND HUMAN JUSTICE

  • Randy Beck (a1)
Abstract

The biblical authors often portray God as a royal judge who brings justice to a fallen creation. This portrayal analogizes God's role in governing humanity to the role played by judges in human legal systems. The divine judge, like human judges, investigates and evaluates conduct, measuring human acts against applicable laws. Like human judges, he fashions punishments and rewards to accomplish justice in light of the conduct disclosed.
