VAN AARDE, Timothy. The relation of God's mission and the mission of the church in Ephesians. Missionalia (Online) [online]. 2016, vol.44, n.3, pp.284-300. ISSN 2312-878X.

A separation between the mission of God and mission of the church occurred post Willengen 1952 through an introduction of the term and concept missio Dei. In the Pauline corpus the letter to the Ephesians makes an invaluable contribution to mission. In the time period 1811-1950 central to the theologies of mission that emerged was the relation of the mission of God and the mission of the church. The mission of God and the mission of the church are interrelated and developed in terms of two concepts in Ephesians, οικονομία (1:9-10; 3:2, 9-10) and πλήρωμα (1:20-23; 3:19; 4:10, 13).

Palavras-chave : Ephesians; mission of the church; oikonomia; pleroma; missio dei; fullness.
