History of Civil Liability and Compensatory Damages

In biblical times oxen performed duties in society that are now accomplished by oil, power and machinery. These very important animals were big, strong, and potentially dangerous. The evolution of modern American law on civil liability and compensatory damages goes back to the bible’s discussion of the law relating to oxen in Exodus XXI.

In this fourth video in my series, The Bible and Our Civil Justice System, I discuss how this law developed and how it changed the way society is organized.
