Step V: Distillation

A. Summary of Salient Features

B. Smoother Translation

C. Hermeneutical Bridge

(GG) There is a "ministry of slavery." There is a sense of the "minister" as "slave" of the Church. - One can speak also of "the veiled Gospel;" in which the truth veiled to some and not to others? Truth has to be discovered in our journey.

1. The God/god of the world: what does it mean for us today? The age we are living and the one that will come?
2. The believer in us and the unbeliever in us? I see it in me, but not in the text.
3. The Church struggle is in it. - The road to Damascus: Paul's conversion experience facing the light.
(CU) Reference to "light" and its functions from the Gospel of John.

(CU) A possible title for this sermon: "Love Slaves".
