Scene 6.

Jesus was very clear about the content of economic justice; his mission was to restore the Jubilee. Jubilee is the announcement of freedom from want, by giving Time to God on the seventh day of the week, the Sabbath Day; rest to Land and cancellation of Debts every seventh year; return of the Land to original Stewards on the morning of the Jubilee Year (7x7=49).

Scene 7.

Economic Justice is at the core of the economic process; economic justice is exercised through four economic rights and responsibilities--thus we pay due homage to MLK and FDR.
