The Only Hermeneutic of the Gospel

Posted: October 27, 2010 in christianity, church, evangelism

‎”I have come to feel that the primary reality of which we have to take account in seeking for a Christian impact on public life is the Christian congregation… The only hermeneutic [framework for interpretation] of the gospel, is a congregation of men and women who believe it and live by it.”

Lesslie Newbigin, The Gospel in a Pluralist Society

“I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”

Jesus, John 17:20-21
