Foundations

The Foundations Module lays the groundwork for the whole course. It provides you with the basic intellectual building blocks for understanding how the Bible speaks into public life and the basis for Christian social engagement.

The purpose of the Foundations Module is to understand the very heart of what the Jubilee Centre is about and why we believe that right and just relationships must be the goal of societal transformation. This is indeed a very radical idea and it is going to take a lifetime to explore, understand and apply.

The four lessons in the Foundational Module are divided into two halves. Lesson 1 & 2 are about a Biblical vision for society and lesson 3 & 4 are about Relational Thinking.

 Learning Objectives for Foundations Module:

  • Introduction to a Biblical vision for society
  • Israel as ‘social paradigm’
  • Relational Thinking
  • The relational proximity framework (RPF)
  • Jubilee Road Map

At end of listening and reading through the resources in the Foundations Module, you will have gained a deeper and fuller understanding of God’s vision for society, the biblical basis for social engagement and why right and just relationships are at the heart of a Christian worldview.

Enjoy your reading and reflection!
