Abstract

WITNESS GOD' S FINGER LIFTING EVIL Mission of dialogue in Luke 24:47-48 Wiel Eggen Missiologists outside the evangelical fold hesitate to read Jesus' command to be witness "to the ends of the earth" in a temporal rather than spacial sense, due to miraculous and apocalyptic undertones. Yet, clarity on how mission does affect history is needed. Not only do some major churches celebrate Mission Sunday towards the end of each liturgical year, with the expectancy of a final deliverance further accentuated liturgically by the following feast of Christ the King and with the chance of this assuming some more apocalyptic colours at the end of the millennium.' But this question of the missionary impact on history, which missiologists should study in the light of biblical sources and notably of the famous mission discourse of Lk 24 :47- 48, is increasingly voiced amidst grave accusations against Christians, and quite often with a reference to the rather different perception of Jesus' mission held by Muslims (despite their remarkably similar views on his person, as in Qur'an 19:22-33, and on his return to mark the end of time, in Qur'an 43:61). Preaching to the earth's ends (Acts 1 :8) Regrettably Christians
