Part 1 of The Church and its Ministry briefly considers the theology of church – what it is the church? Our understanding of the church and ministry stand and fall on our concept of who Jesus Christ is.
Part 2 elaborates on four images used in the Bible to clarify what the church is. The presentation also provides some insight on how signs, symbols and images can aid in the interpretation of Scripture.
Key conclusion: Beware of selective use of figurative speech when drawing conclusions
