The Judeo-Christian Concept Of An Agreement Between Man And God

In the area of conflict resolution, reconciliation is often not the goal. [18] Certainly, reconciliation at the global level and with war issues was rarely the goal. Historically, peace efforts have been aimed at ending the fighting and establishing non-violent coexistence. In 2004, one scholar said, «If you ask most political scientists and scholars of international relations what role reconciliation in peace should have, you are inclined to have a bewildered look and perhaps also a restless silence.» [19] This means that «although the concept of reconciliation has long been known to scholars and practitioners, it has only proven to be an area of specific interest for peace studies in the past ten years.» [20] Different models of reconciliation of the peacemaker are just beginning to emerge. [21] The Judeo-Christian approach to the organization of peace is a model of autonomous reconciliation. In some ways, I feel like an explorer who has found untouched land, which has always been there, but which is neglected by the majority of travelers. I think the Judeo-Christian model of peace work is the gold standard. It applies in our homes, in our communities, in our communities and in our world. I look forward to being their leader, who has become new again. A few years ago, there was a discussion between a university member and a doctoral student.

The teacher, who had grown up in a Protestant home, said she had recently visited a Jewish synagogue. When it came to approaching God and making peace, the teacher`s attitude was «nothing of this intermediary. What makes this statement so surprising is that the professor was part of the department of conflict resolution. Mediation («mittelmann») is essential to this area of work. But this professor did not appreciate this model of peacemaking when it came to establishing peace with God. [22] 38 The creation of the prophet`s ministry dates back to the time when Moses stood as a mediator between God and the people, as in Deut. 18:15.19 described. 37 Moses often made statements for the people after he had sinned against God. Passages include: Exod. 32:1-35; 33:1-23; Number 13:25-14:39; 21:4-9. See also Exod.

5:1 and 8:8 where Moses served as a mediator between God and Pharaoh. Reconciliation is seen in the Book as the pinnacle of God`s desire for a world that has ignored, revolted and diverted from him. Despite all this, «God was in Christ who reconciled the world with himself» (2 Co 5, 19 NASB). Jesus` last role as Messiah of Israel was to reconcile God and men. [14] Reconciliation was considered «the central concept of Christianity.» [15] Since the original meaning of the word in Greek was to «change» or «exchange» if the New Testament says that men are reconciled with God, it means that they have exchanged a hostile relationship for a friendship. [16] The Judeo-Christian model of peace-building differs from other models, because the foundation of the whole process is not justice (as indispensable as justice for peace), but love. This is different from what is usually taught. For example, one scholar said, «The only stable ground under peace is justice.» [1] The Charter of the United Nations [2] advances the same idea, not only by what it says, but also by what it does not say.

That is, the words peace and justice are used dozens of times. But the concept of love is not at all looking. [3] But justice is the second basis of peace in the Judeo-Christian model.
