Paul as Pastor

The Seven Last Words

M. Gorman

  1. Proclamation—of the gospel of God = the missio Dei
  2. Participation—cruciform embodiment of the gospel/interchange in Christ
  3. Passion—zeal
  4. Parenting—like a mother and a father
  5. Partnership—with God and with others
  6. Prayer—praising God; interceding for others; requesting prayer support
  7. Purpose—individual and communal transformation into the image of God in Christ by the power of the Spirit = interchange in Christ = becoming the justice/righteousness of God = cruciform embodiment of the gospel = participation in the missio Dei
