Reading the passages in the Bible concerning slavery without understanding the cultural context of those writings can lead to misunderstanding and possibly rejection of the Bible or Christian faith.  When these Old and New Testament passages are properly understood within their cultural and spiritual context, the reader will come to an understanding that the God of the Bible has been the greatest influence against unjust slavery in all of history.  

The goal of this paper is to provide a survey of the Biblical passages on slavery as well as historical examples of how Christianity has played a significant role in overturning the institution of slavery in the world.
