Abstract

This paper aims to contribute to a distinctively Christian view of capital punishment within a peace church perspective. The present essay builds from the previous work of Mennonite-Anabaptist writers on this question—John Howard Yoder, Christopher Marshall, Gardner Hanks and Millard Lind. It offers a two-part argument concerning capital punishment, based on the teaching of Jesus in the Gospel of John and the message of the cross in the epistles of Paul.
