TREASURES FROM GOD’S WORD

The Jubilee Year and Future Liberty

The Jubilee Year and Future Liberty

The Jubilee year helped to prevent endless debt and poverty in Israel (Le 25:10; w19.12 50:3; see cover picture)

The sale of land was essentially a lease based on the value of crops the land would produce (Le 25:15; it-1-E 1200 ¶2)

Jehovah blessed his people when they obeyed the law of the Jubilee year (Le 25:18-22; it-2-E 122-123)

In the near future, faithful humans will enjoy the full benefits of the symbolic Jubilee when they are completely liberated from sin and death.​—Ro 8:21.

What must each of us do to receive the freedom that Jehovah has promised?
