Does the Bible Support Capital Punishment?
Show Notes

Many countries have abolished the death penalty, but the United States remains a notable exception, along with China, Iran, North Korea, and Somalia—nations not exactly recognized for enlightened governance. In the U.S., there also are concerns that the sentencing process in capital cases is tainted by racism and bias.

How should Christians address this topic? Does the Bible support the death penalty, or is capital punishment a barbaric relic of the past that should be abolished? Listen now to Dr. David K. Bernard's response.
