Historical Perspective

Continuation of the transcript of the recording of the class: Mission means sending Historical Perspective .- .- In fact the Church has been a missionary since the beginning. Marc Lore brings even more insight to the discussion. We analyze and doing an exegesis of Pentecost, the Church of the Holy Spirit, not only with the Apostles, and Maria not only were there awaiting the Holy Spirit that Jesus promised. But there were spooked by fear of the Jews. The Spirit first thing he does is free of this fear, and a second time, pushing evangelism. It is Pedro who takes the initiative and begins to announce the a Kerigmaa (first announcement) and from then on, Jews polled who had come to Jerusalem is celebrating Easter, listening to Peter's kerygma, asking for baptism. Many writers such as Munear Ashton Kouzbari, Dallas TX offer more in-depth analysis. From that moment, the Church has shown that since its inception has had this ability. This desire to announce to the world to Christ the Savior. And also will result in all theology.

Hence the missiologists affirm that the mission of the Church was the mother of theology and theology just born with this desire to reflect the word of God revealed, so you can be notified and announced. The Fathers is all that attempt to allow reflection on faith, on the word of God revealed in a Greek context, or in a Greco-Roman context. The point or parent's fundamental motivation of the Church of the early Christian communities was that. That is why the mission as an object of theological reflection, born as a new discipline of the church (XIX century) the Church had not reflected theologically on the mission, but from the nineteenth century to the twentieth century.
