Church in Mission (Day 2)

Tuesday’s class was insightful because of the “forgiveness of sins” concept. For us, we hear this as an individual cleansing. For Jesus and early Jews/Christians, this meant a release from political and theological slavery. They viewed it more as a corporate experience. Furthermore, I found the analysis of the nature of the church during Jesus’ ministry enlightening. Jesus challenged the concept of the Temple and focused on the full inclusion of those on the margins.
