The Theological Education of the Disciples by Jesus

We need to begin with a word about the methodology of application. There can be no simple correspondence between the methodology of Jesus and the methodology of theological education in every culture and time. Critical contextualisation helps us to see that Jesus himself deliberately contextualised his methodology. We have both a right and a duty to do the same. Our task is to allow the principles on which Jesus worked to cross the contextual divide rather than the practices. To make the practices normative is to demand that theological education and practice be foreign to the situation in which it is practised.
