Reflection Questions
  • How did Jesus break down sinful cultural practices and social barriers? Can we apply his method to mission field situations? Why or why not?

  • There is considerable debate over the translation of the Greek preposition entos found in Luke 17:20-21. Use your biblical reference books to translate the word. According to your translation, would you more likely say that you enter into the kingdom of God or that it enters into you? Why? What are the implications of your choice for missions activities?
