The Biblical Covenant as the Foundation of Justice, Obligations and Rights

By Daniel J. Elazar

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), 1996

The author uses biblical references to explain his understanding of a model of justice based on covenantal obligation. He argues that this biblically-based understanding of justice was central to the foundation of the United States as a legal and political entity and continues to pervade American understandings of justice.
