Dr. Yung Suk Kim's blog writings. This blog is about "transformation." שׁוּב (shub, Hebrew) means "to turn back or return," and μετάνοια (metanoia, Greek) means "change of mind." Dao De Jing says: "To return is the movement of the Way." In other words, the Way needs a return or subversive thinking. Pronunciation of Chinese characters: fǎn zhě dào zhī dòng
Why is it crucial to understand Paul's theology in terms of a God-centered ecclesiology?

Paul's theology is thoroughly theocentric, and Jesus as the Jewish Messiah serves God. For more information or discussion, please visit my web page.
