Christology and Missiology

“…through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles for His name’s sake.” Romans 1:5

This entire section owes its existence to the conviction that every truth about Jesus is relevant and applicable to the work of missions. Within this general affirmation, however, there must also be the recognition that certain facets of His person and work are of heightened significance for those summoned to the nations. 

These precious truths must be treasured and their import developed. Paul's entire missionary enterprise was wrapped up in Jesus – for the sake of His name. He was the impetus, the fuel, and the goal. Thus, at every stage of mission it must be made explicit why and how missiology is so deeply intertwined with Christology.

Heralds and Friends

John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven… He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:27-30

The Worth of Jesus and Mission - Part 3

The ideological streams of the Enlightenment have moved with astonishing swiftness in the last hundred years, carrying society to a point where all is now subjective. The only consensus is that there is none, and the only unquestionable tenet is that the individual has the right to question anything. All worth is now dictated solely by whim and preference.
