The End of Sacrifice: The Capital Punishment Writings of John Howard Yoder
For more information, see Rachel Waltner Goossen’s research, published in Mennonite Quarterly Review, entitled “Defanging the Beast”.
Since the death of Jesus brought a decisive end to all sacrifices for sin, Yoder argues, Christians should proclaim its abolition and death penalty advocates should no longer claim biblical validation. In doing so, Yoder also makes a persuasive case for proactive Christian witness to the state. Yoder calls the church to proclaim the end of sacrifice to public officials who are responsible to administer capital punishment.
