When we support or are ready to support nonviolent direct acts, we might be considered to be engaging or progressing in peacemaking practices. We find two key figures in nonviolent direct action in the New and Old Testament records: Abraham and Jesus. Despite the abuses done by the majority of Sodom’s inhabitants against his own family, the Bible claims that Abraham participated in nonviolent direct action by confronting/pleading with God to spare the people of Sodom. As their burgeoning flocks began fighting for limited resources, he took an unusual solo effort to decrease threat by granting his nephew Lot the first choice of pasture for his cattle. Lot set up camp in the Jordan Valley, while Abraham relocated to Hebron, avoiding a possible family feud.
