Mutilated Bodies

Sandra Jacobs’s ​The Body as Property examines the role of physical disfigurement in the Hebrew Bible, with focus on the Torah, and more specifically on the (fictitious) Priestly document, P.

About Trinity House

Trinity House believes the church, the body of Christ empowered by the Spirit, to be God’s chief human agent for the transformation of human society.

We envision a world full of churches that teach the Christian Scriptures as the Word of God in all their power and beauty; churches where the people of God sing Psalms, hymns, and songs in lively worship and eat and drink together each week around the Lord’s table; churches that live in obedience to the Lord Jesus and practice discipline together under the leadership of their pastors; churches whose members share in the mission of the Son and Spirit to bring about God’s kingdom of peace, justice, and love.

We equip our students for imaginative ministry and foster the development of their particular talents. We provide a context for our scholars and teachers to study the Scriptures, engage in theological research, instruct and mentor other ministers, teachers, and Christian laity, and pursue publication of their own work, all for the purposes of supporting the church’s work of teaching, worship, and cultural renewal.
