Free study resources for 12 YEARS A SLAVE 2013 movie
This powerful and dramatic film by British director Steve McQueen is based on the amazing true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War USA, Solomon Northup (played by Londoner Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender) as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. Damaris offers free downloadable video and text study resources for Christian groups.

Egypt - a Christian perspective
One of the most defining events of the Old Testament is the Israelites' rescue from slavery in Egypt. This is the beginning of that story; in this passage, we learn of the Israelites' oppression and slavery in the foreign land of Egypt.


Slaves - a Christian perspective
Many of the members of the early Christian church were slaves who needed to know how to relate to their masters under their new faith. Paul issues some guidelines for slaves here, without necessarily condoning the practice.


Slave in the Bible: Romans 6:15-23
The New Testament often uses the image of slavery to describe a state of total subservience to a spiritual ruler. In this case, we learn that we are spiritual slaves to sin and its power until we find freedom in Christ. We become "slaves" to Christ instead, and find that slavery to Christ is in fact true spiritual freedom.


"Free" in the Bible: John 8:35-36
God promises freedom to those who follow Him. This passage contrasts the lot of a slave, who must do as he or she is told, to that of a family member, who is free to act as they please. When we follow Christ, we are invited to leave our slavery to sin and join the family of God.
