Abstract

Justice runs like the strand of a cord through the Bible, which explains that God is the source of justice, and that justice can be known sufficiently by persons who are open to understanding it. More importantly, the Bible asserts that justice can be "done" by willing people. It will not be established universally in this world, however, but will be finally and fully established in the world of the future.
