Description

This is a Regent chapel talk given during the Fall of 2019.

This jazz-talk uses blues and jazz music to unpack the significance of biblical law for missional communities today. There are parallels between the development of blues and jazz and the development of biblical law: both have their roots in the atrocity of slavery. Blues and jazz developed in the oppression of slavery and of the reconstruction era in the U.S. Biblical law emerged from the atrocity of slavery in Egypt. This talk unfolds the significance of biblical law by looking at three laws in Deuteronomy, reflecting on their practical implications for God's-people-on-mission today.
