It is one thing to exegete a culture, what we call missiological exegesis. It is another thing to begin to engage that culture with the gospel. First, however, we must know what we believe. That seems like a funny comment since most of us might be able to clearly articulate what we believe. Yet, the question to ask is does our articulation of what we believe connect with the culture? In other words, when we reflect missiologically on what we have learned about the people, culture, and history of a place, we want to ask two things: 1) what is God doing here; 2) how is the gospel uniquely good news in this culture?

This week on the Ephesiology Podcast we talk about what unites us. Andrew, Matt, and Michael are joined by Father Matt as they discuss the development of early church creeds, church history, and the remarkable unity of the church in her first three hundred years. Such unity strove to preserve the apostolic tradition that had been passed down everywhere, and believed by everyone for all time. Join us for what is no doubt an important topic as we consider what comes after evangelicalism.
