Encounter: Breaking Chains - A Look at Modern-Day Slavery

Breaking Chains: A Look at Modern-Day Slavery

In Exodus, we see the Israelites living as slaves to the Egyptians believing God had abandoned them. Our world is one full of injustice and the issue of Human Trafficking or Modern-Day Slavery is not something that ended when the Israelites were set free from Egypt. We will be looking at what the Bible says about slavery according to Exodus and discovering more of the biblical teachings regarding slavery. We will also look at how God created us as his agents to the world, like Moses to the Israelites, to help set the captives free and how all of us, particularly as Christians, today can participate in fighting for justice breaking the chains of Modern Day Slavery in our society!
