Combine these ideas with Pastor Greg Simas' sermons on what ekklesia really is, and things might really get wild!
The only "missing" area I wish this book could have discussed is the continuing debate about women in the ekklesia.
We are all members of Christ's body and one spirit with Him who is our federal head. We are all servants who are to honor one another and build one another up in love. The truth of this defies a heirarchical authoritative structure that sets one brother or sister above the other in a position of domination. In his own humble and precise style, Jonathan carefully examines the language and its intent in the New Testament that decries the idea of dominating positions. He does this without abuse or ridicule, and moreover, he points the way to a truer brotherhood and unity in the body by describing the relationship Jesus and the New Testament writers actually teach and exemplify.
This is an important read for anyone struggling with their identity and place in Christ or desiring to teach a more perfect way.
If you have been struggling with how you should relate to "leaders" or "spiritual fathers/mothers" this book will give you a strong biblical foundation to enable you to be where Christ Jesus wants you to in relation to His body.
Read it asking the Holy Spirit to let you see truth and what is not truth.
You will need an ability to think beyond what has been spoon fed and examine the scriptures for yourself along with Jonathan as he takes you along on his journey of discovery of Christian leadership as taught by Jesus.
I want to read and re-read until I fully grasp these solid biblical truths that defy many traditions.
