Abstract

This article wants to examine Paul's independence as a Gospel Preacher who lives as an entrepreneur. The Apostle Paul as an apostle for Gentiles has special expertise in making tents - used as a support for funding - so that it can help in the continuation of the preaching of the gospel. He does not want to burden the congregation he serves in funding the preaching of the gospel. The expertise he has is used as much as possible to sustain it in service. As an apostle, he is not ashamed to be forthright about what he is doing as a tentmaker. And its main purpose is the expertise to make tents used as a bridge for the preaching of the gospel. Thus there are at least two important things obtained from this topic, namely: first, the independence of funds as an evangelist, and second, expertise as a bridge of evangelism. The method of research conducted is qualitative. The study carries out a theological approach through biblical studies. In this research, the author will describe Paul as an entrepreneur, and an entrepreneur of evangelistic bridges. The findings in this study showed that it is crucial for gospel preachers to emulate Paul who made his expertise a pillar of service so that it did not become a burden on the congregation served. The church must learn to accept the fact that there are pastors who live as entrepreneurs.

Abstract

The congregation of Gereja Kristen Jawi Wetan (GKJW) in Jember is the subject of the research and an integral part that divorce rates are rising. The teaching of Christian faith is not to be divorced, but in fact, divorce occurs. In the 1970s, there were no divorces; however, in the 2000s divorce befell in the GKJW Christian family in Jember. The high divorce of church members in Jember in the 2000s became a challenge to Church service. The data from Jember Regency Population and Civil Registration Office is in line with the divorce that happened in GKJW Congregations in Jember. What factors cause divorce in the GKJW Church in all of the Jember District? Social supports, administrative requirements, religious background are the main factors causing divorce. While supporting factors, husband and wife accountability, PIL or WIL, family conflicts, and communication are the stimulants of divorce. These are social facts that are intertwined in church service in the social context. Institutionally or personally, church servants should prepare themselves and the “tools” of the services being needed, in preparation for possible problems that will occur.

The current phenomenon of child delinquency leads to moral degradation. The fact is children are no longer victims of violence, but also become perpetrators. The emergence of cases of destruction, abuse, rape, and even murder carried out by children, show the weakness of moral education in Indonesia. There are two main factors that influence, namely external and internal. There needs to be synergy between parents, teachers and the community to educate children. In addition to moral education in the family and society, school becomes a parent's partner to educate and instill moral values ​​for children in school. In this case, the teacher has a big role in shaping the child into a moral person. Especially in this case, Christian teachers (teachers who are Christian) need to have an awareness of children's needs for moral values because these values ​​are in line with noble Christian values. This research is here to help Christian teachers by offering steps to be able to teach moral values ​​for children in school. The author used descriptive method so that readers can see a picture of the research results more closely. The efforts to overcome children's moral degradation in school include creating a moral community, designing shared moral discipline, upholding moral discipline, teaching conflict resolution and guiding students.

Abstract

This study is an effort to explore more concrete and holistic understanding related to existence and woman role in Batak society. In reality, Batak has several terms that refer to the strong existence of the woman in Batak society. However, since the lineage is drawn from the male line as the case in a patriarchal culture, the strategic roles of women themselves often become neglected. This study conducted a constructive critical study to position women’s leadership in the context of the Batak community. It began by describing the real conditions of women in the context of the Batak community. Furthermore, the constructive critical study was carried out by looking at religious literature as well as myth. The use of myths as study material is usually done in the study of the Sciences of Religions because people believe that myths contain teachings about the moral of a society, which are accepted and lived as teaching in daily life. Through that, things can also be found to be learning for the future. The study of the Sciences of Religions also uses the Sociology of Religion to discuss humanity and religion itself. Theological reflection on certain texts in the Bible is carried out with a new perspective. This way is done to rise up the strength of a woman. Of course, this study have already finished by a deep and long study, so what is presented here is the result of the researcher recommends only.

Abstract

Sekolah Tinggi Agama Kristen Negeri Kupang After the 2019 National Election in Indonesia, which still left problems both essentialism and mechanism, this nation has been materially and immaterially drained. Later, the political elites who benefit the situation for their interest have been very annoying and disturbing. Therefore, the harmony among the religious people in Indonesia is triggered by differences in political views, even having to reduce religious narratives and diction which are then forced even if they are contrary to human values. As a result, the discourse of social harmony is initiated by the community figures through no-theme participation; it becomes a formula that must be immediately implemented in such a way that the unity of the nation might be restored after having been torn apart by the different political view. The discourse of social harmony might be attached to the Christian perspective that offers a completely new idea in accordance with the context of the problems in Indonesia. Through the literacy method, the form of re-reading and re-checking the diction and the narration has been formulated and provided new meaning or discourse into the social harmony of the digital-era Indonesian people altogether. It might be concluded that holding no-theme participation with literacy skills mastery is important to conduct among the digital-era Indonesian people since the digital era itself might be considered as one of the contributing factors to the present problems (such as hoax, deception and hate speech) that have so widely spread that they start to erode the unity and the integrity of Indonesia.

Abstract

Churches in Indonesia live in ethnical and cultural diversity. We can find much local wisdom which lately continues to preserve. But not all churches want to receive local wisdom because there is an opinion that local culture is contrary to the Christian faith. Therefore in this paper I want to invite the churches in Indonesia to open space for local wisdom. My effort is encouraging the churches to look at the figure of Jesus, who popularized the local wisdom that called the tradition of Theos Patros. Theos Patros tradition is the oldest tradition of the nation of Israel and has been known since the era of the ancestors but is no longer popular in the time of Jesus. But Jesus re-popularized the tradition because that tradition has a high noble value in line with the emphasis of the Gospel of Matthew.

Abstract

This article discusses of the oneness in John 15:7 as a contextual mission attempt to the Kejawen practitioners. In John 15:7 is explained that if humans are in God and God is in humans, then all that people want will be fulfilled. In the Kejawen teaching, there is also an understanding of oneness, called Manunggaling Kawula Gusti. The concept is also the unification between man and God. The unification of Man with God in this concept through the stages of changing human life. From that definition, the legacy in John 15:7 has similarities with those in the Manunggaling Kawula Gusti concept. For this reason, both of these can be compared by looking at the similarities and differences between the two. The result obtained from this comparison can be used as a contextualization mission to the Kejawen believers. The method used in this study is qualitative research with the approach of literature study and comparisons.

Abstract

Wana, one of the tribes in Central Sulawesi, has a custom of demolishing houses and moving when one of the inhabitants dies. This custom is an expression of their fear of death. In theory, cultural activities around death are always associated with religious concepts. This study aims to explore the religious ideas behind their habits. The research method used was an ethnographic study using an interview as data collection techniques. Informants are 8 (eight) original Wana people. Data is analyzed through reduction, display, and conclusions/verification. The results show that the custom is related to the religious concept they professed regarding death. According to the Wana, death is related to Pue, the end of everything, and caused by evil spirits. The Purpose of dismantling the house and moving after death is to avoid the influence of evil spirits against the living. For Christian mission activities that want to contribute to the development in Wana, the results show that religious concept needs to be transformed through a contextual approach.

MAKNA DIALOG YESUS DENGAN FILIPUS DALAM YOHANES 14: 8-14

MAKNA DIALOG YESUS DENGAN FILIPUS DALAM YOHANES 14: 8-14

Abstract

The text of John 14: 8-14 shows the confusion and failure of disciples to understand Jesus's teaching. This is in contrast to the situation of the disciples' closeness to Jesus. They should have understood Jesus' intentions faster because they had been living with Jesus for a long time in the ministry. On the contrary, this dialogue actually shows as if there was a huge dividing wall between Jesus and the disciples. The main factor that prevented disciples from understanding Jesus' teaching was that the disciples did not yet truly believe the authority that Jesus had. The disciples are still bound by the OT conceptual understanding of how to see the Father through Theophany revelation. Therefore, this article examines the meaning contained in the dialogue by conducting an exegesis analysis of each word and phrase to find the main message that is emphasized in the text.

Keywords: Dialogue, Jesus, Fhilip, John 14: 8-14

Abstract

The encounter between the official religion and local values also gives specificity in theology. It can be traced to the use of Duang and Duad terms, which are understood by Kei people as God. Kei people know that God is present in the reality of everyday life, but also His name is very sacred, so it can not be called arbitrarily. Though they have embraced Christianity, they still believe in Duad in their cultural and diversity peculiarities. The method used is qualitative research with a contextual theological concept. The finding of this research is the Kei who have embraced Christianity remain confident in the Duad in their daily lives.
