God Bearers: Moses and the Prophets
Over the last couple of weeks I have been describing an ecosystem based on: the Scriptures, the interpreters and their audiences.
The interpreters (prophets: teachers, preachers) are those that have volunteered by way of Calling to do the work of contextualisation to Scriptures. In other words, those called out to rationalise divine oracles in relation to the sociopolitical challenges of their era. I call them God-bearers.
The last, but never the least part of this ecosystem (the audiences) can be subdivided into two groups: the church and the unchurched. The churched are also God-bearers, called to work alongside preachers and teachers towards the expansion of God’s kingdom here on earth (2 Cor. 4, Ezra 6:14).
Therefore, in today’s talk I will focus on this unique relationship between both sets of God-bearers, in the shape of an institution we know today as the Church. During my talk I will explore its original intent as a vehicle for change and reorientation of our World, and how we can maximise its potential.

We march in the light of Nahum’s assertions:
(For the Lord is restoring the majesty of Jacob, as well as the majesty of Israel, though ravagers have ravaged them and ruined their branches.) – Nahum 2:2
