Hadn’t seen that particular compilation before, but am familiar with most of the material.

The problem with using the OT to show the validity of slavery is that there is very little in common between the slavery of the OT and that of America.

Slavery here was much closer to that of the classical world, but there was one HUGE difference. Slavery in the classical world never had a race connection. Racism + slavery made a peculiarly toxic mix.
