This week we’ll critically examine how the Christian scriptural tradition underwrites historical and even contemporary commitments to economic justice. We’re joined by Catherine Murphy, Associate Professor of New Testament in the Religious Studies Department at Santa Clara and Bannan Institute scholar in the Ignatian Center. She teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on the Bible, historical Jesus, gender and early Christianity, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and a course on economic ethics, titled “Wealth, Work, and The Gospel”. She’s published three books and is currently preparing a book that situates early Christian testimonies in their economic and political contexts.
