  13. 13. What is GK Today?
  14. 14. Justice concept in the Old Testament could best be translated as &quot; Right-Relations &quot; or even better as &quot; Life-Giving Relationships &quot; (Fuellenbach, 1998).
  15. 15. According to Fuellenbach (1998), these essential relations extend in four directions : to God , to oneself , to neighbor (both as individual and as part of society) and to creation as a whole.
  16. 16. Therefore, to be just means to live in life-giving relationships with my fellow human beings, with myself, with nature (creation) and ultimately with God.
