Week 2, Jesus and the Church, Chapter 1, Fullenbach

October 8, 2007

I found it helpful to hear Fullenbach’s discussion of what the kingdom of God looks like, and how this “image” serves as a guide to Christian in understanding the what the Church is to be about. In particular, he notes that the God seeks to create an “altenatve social reality” that does not leave the poor or those suffering in unending systems of oppression, but rather liberates and offers them an opportunity to live in a just and peaceful community that God is creating through His people (21).
