“…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.
