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.
