Alec Kraft St . Francis of Assisi 3 quotes from The Church’s Social Function in the Light of a “Political Theology .” 1. “The New Testament community knows that it has been called from the beginning to live the promise of the future in present conditions and thus to overcome the world .” (pg 31 paragraph 2) In this excerpt I believe that Johann Metz is trying to convey the message that the New Testament community now has to continue to live out the mission of Jesus Christ which is why we have to live the promise that Jesus made for the future in the present conditions that we are presented with in order to overcome the world . There are always going to be tempters trying to deter us from the mission, but according to Metz no matter what situation we are presented with we need to be able to overcome it and continue to live the promise . Overcoming obstacles is a necessary step and something that the New Testament community understands that they will have to endure.
