SUMMARY: In an excerpt from Tim Keller‘s book, Generous Justice, he explains that biblical justice consists of two Hebrew words – mishpat (to treat people equitably) and tzadeqah (a life of right relationships) – and when those two words are brought together in today’s terms it would be called social justice.

KEY QUOTE: “If you are trying to live a life in accordance with the Bible, the concept and call to justice are inescapable. We do justice when we give all human beings their due as creations of God. Doing justice includes not only the righting of wrongs but generosity and social concern, especially toward the poor and vulnerable.”
