Anyone Who Teaches That Slavery Had Biblical Roots Should Study Their History

Xulon Press presents a comparison between biblical and European slavery.


Author Edward Lee Johnson, Sr. offers an in-depth study of biblical slavery and its historical influence in The Autopsy of Slavery and the Bible: Christ’s Triumph Over Slavery Bringing Unity to the Body ($15.49, paperback, 9781662867507; $6.99, e-book, 9781662867514).


After watching an online video about slavery in the Bible, Johnson was struck by all that the video didn’t say, and so began to conduct his own research.  He discovered that the kind of slavery practiced by the Europeans and motivated by race had nothing to do with the slavery we see in the Bible.  In this book, he shares the results of his research and the teaching the believers in Christ are all one family and united by Him.


The aim of this book is to erase from the minds of Christians that ‘chattel slavery’ practiced in European colonies had anything to do with the Bible,said Johnson.
