Breaking the Curse
The ancient story of Cain and Abel shows how God breaks the curse of blood revenge. God protects Cain from revenge killings and holds him accountable for the murder of his brother Abel in a different way. Jesus proclaims the church to be a place of radical forgiveness, not radical revenge. In a story about the forgiveness of
financial debt, Jesus connects forgiveness of sins and forgiveness of debt. He shows that mercy and forgiveness need to be inbuilt in our systems of justice and economy.
