Christians didn't own slaves. A slave was someone who couldn't pay off a debt with money, so they paid it off with work. When the debt was paid, the slave was free. And every 50 years, all slaves were given a clean slate wheither they still owed money or not. Even if they had sold their property to pay off a debt, the property was given back.
