I propose that a theological perspective makes a constructive and creative contribution to the global struggle for justice. Christian theology recognizes other theories of justice, but at the same time suggests that the struggle for justice is enhanced by providing an ontological foundation for and specific content to justice. The Hebrew Bible, Jesus of Nazareth and the earliest Christian communities located justice in God and God's relationship to the world. Jesus' engagement for justice raised opposition and led to his crucifixion; yet, according to the biblical accounts God validated Jesus' vision by raising him from the dead, and God's Spirit keeps the story of Jesus alive in the world by empowering humans in their struggle for the implementation of justice.
