Refialy <p><em>The purpose of this article is to describe and analyze the notion of diversity in existentialism that appears in existentialist thinkers namely Soren Kierkegaard, Jean Paul Sartre, and Paul Tillich who have their own characteristics in their thinking. The theme of Existentialism has been discussed throughout history because it focuses on human concerns. A qualitative method with a content analysis approach is used to discuss and analyze existentialism philosophically and theologically. Based on the analysis, existentialism refers to humans as conscious subjects but can be viewed differently by thinkers. Kierkegaard’s theistic existensialism with the concept of leap of faith where humans are fully conscious can relate personally with God. Sartre's existentialism is atheistic, rejecting the existence of God and emphasizing human subjects who determine their own lives, taking responsibility for themselves. Tillich who uses the theme of existentialism in his method of correlation to connect God's Word to modern people with their existential awareness. Existentialism is very anthropocentric and does not emphasize Theocentric in human live.</em></p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 SCRIPTA: Jurnal Teologi dan Pelayanan Kontekstual Analisis Historis Teologi Terhadap Peran Gmit Galed Kelapa Lima Bagi Moralitas Sosial Di Kelurahan Kelapa Lima 2023-05-22T22:17:40+08:00 Janter Rano Baki Maria R. A. Pada Yuda D. Hawu Haba Endang Damaris Koli <p><em>Since its formation, the GMIT Galed Kelapa Lima Congregation has still faced problems of social morality in Kelapa Lima Village, Kupang City. The problem of morality has not diminished, but has become more prevalent nowadays due to the existence of traditional massage service places and bars at the Sasando Hotel and Citra Hotel around Galed residents, thus providing onsite and online access for covert prostitution services. This article aims to explore past tensions that have an impact on the present, by exploring the role of GMIT Galed Kelapa Lima in historical and contemporary contexts. This article uses a qualitative method with a Church History approach. Data collection techniques used, namely field research and literature review. The results of the research show that all this time the Galed church has focused on internal consolidation and set aside these issues. Therefore, I offer a holistic service model to answer the problem of social morality, namely: First, the importance of sex education in the family, educational institutions and the church. Second, develop the Galed ministry which focuses on Transformative Diakonia. Third, service management approach through SWOT analysis. Fourth, the Galed Church is partnering with the Kupang City Government to develop a shared vision for preventing covert prostitution.</em></p> 2023-05-28T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 SCRIPTA: Jurnal Teologi dan Pelayanan Kontekstual Pentingnya Pekerja Kristus Dalam Implementasi Amanat Agung 2023-05-23T20:16:01+08:00 Sostenis Nggebu <p>The problem studied in this article relates to the challenges and needs of Christ's workers to reap the yellowing fields. Remembering that the world as a field belonging to God is always short of workers. The response of church members to the challenges and needs allows the field to be reaped. The purpose of this article is to discuss the role of Christ workers in carrying out the Great Commission. The method used in this article is the hermeneutic method. The results show that the Christ worker is someone who surrenders and is actively involved in preaching the Gospel. Practically, he preaches the gospel, guides the people he serves to grow spiritually. In this case he is also known as a person who trains others to do the same task in carrying out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.</p> 2023-05-28T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 SCRIPTA: Jurnal Teologi dan Pelayanan Kontekstual Percakapan Pastoral Yesus Dengan Simon Petrus : Analisis Naratif Yohanes 21:15-19 Dan Implikkasinya Bagi Percakapan Pastoral Pelayan Gereja Yang Hendak Mengundurkan Diri 2022-06-08T01:02:18+08:00 Ade Efra Anugrah <p><em>The Bible gives the reader a narrative in John 21:15-19 about the Lord Jesus having a pastoral conversation with Simon Peter who was about to resign and return to his old profession. Through this text, the author wants to raise and explore it using qualitative methods with a narrative approach from Mark Allan Powell. Through narrative criticism, the author sees events in three important elements where there are events, characters, and places that are in the narrative and draws them out by placing themselves as writers and shadow readers. This study seeks to answer the question of what Jesus, the Master, through the pastoral conversation, was in the view of the narrator so that Simon Peter gave up his intention to resign from the ministry and what are the implications for the minister of the church who wanted to resign because the leader left ? . The results of the study found that the Pastoral conversation of the Lord Jesus to Simon Peter evoked cognitive aspects, affection aspects, and psychomotor aspects. The opposition to these aspects can be used by the leader who is about to leave the place of service where there is his servant who intends to resign and follow him. </em></p> 2023-05-28T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 SCRIPTA: Jurnal Teologi dan Pelayanan Kontekstual Segunyeng Sebagai Sarana Komunikasi Lintas Budaya Dalam Perspektif Kisah Para Rasul 4: 32-37 2023-05-16T10:17:44+08:00 Harming Krismadayanti <p><em>T</em><em>he purpose of writing this article is to analyze sequnyeng as a form of cross-cultural communication from the perspective of Acts 4:32-37. The writing method used is a qualitative method with a literature study approach to find data about the culture of the Oma Lung Dayak tribe. Methods The hermeneutic approach is used to investigate, study and discuss the text of Acts 4:32-37 carefully with the aim of finding the meaning contained in the text. The conclusion of "sequnyeng as a form of cross-cultural communication in the perspective of Acts 4:32-37" in theoretical implications is First, sequnyeng is a mutual cooperation activity carried out by the Oma Lung Dayak people when they do heavy work. In these activities the community builds cross-cultural communication verbally and non-verbally through togetherness and sharing. Second, the early church in Acts 4:32-37 were people who believed in Jesus, they had a lifestyle of fellowship in love. The fellowship is a manifestation of togetherness where they always live by prioritizing others besides that they share by witnessing and telling about their experiences of faith in Jesus and encouraging one another, affirming one another and praying for one another.</em></p> 2023-05-28T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 SCRIPTA: Jurnal Teologi dan Pelayanan Kontekstual Studi Eksegesis Amsal 1-9: Suatu Antitesis Antara Orang Bebal dan Orang Bijak 2023-05-15T09:36:27+08:00 Riski Riski Farel Yosua Sualang Endah Totok Budiyono <p><em>The purpose of this research is to understand the meaning of fear of God in the text of Proverbs 1-9. Because the phrase "fear of God" often shows a gap in interpretation as an action-consequence relationship and re-interpretation in the orientation of obedience to wise qualities. This study uses a qualitative approach using the hermeneutic method of the wisdom genre, in particular paying attention coherently to the thematic phrase "fear of the Lord" in Proverbs 1-9. Thematic analysis of the relation of wisdom literature pays attention to translational or literal analysis, context, theological and especially the structure of antithetical parallelism, as well as the character-consequence pattern of the fool and the wise man. The result of this study is that the phrase "fear of God" describes a rebuke and rejection of wisdom which has bad consequences for a person. However, the peculiarity of wisdom in the phrase "fear of the Lord" provides a coherent orientation between knowledge and knowledge of God. It can be concluded that the basis of wisdom, namely "fearing the Lord" provides an understanding for wise and stupid people. The uniqueness of this interpretation is caused by the peculiarity of the pattern of words that are retribution (cause and effect) in the book of Proverbs 1-9. Not surprisingly, the meaning of the phrase "fear of God" emphasizes character/habits and the impact of true wisdom.</em></p> 2023-05-28T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 SCRIPTA : Jurnal Teologi dan Pelayanan Kontekstual Suara Kenabian Amos: Teladan Bagi Pengkhotbah di Era Industri 5.0 2023-05-03T10:02:11+08:00 Esron Mangatas Siregar Indah Hotlan Imanda Saragih <p><em>This research is motivated by the occurrence of violations and deviations from the prophetic voice of Amos, which have massively occurred in the fields of law, society, and spirituality. The law is twisted, blunt on top, and sharp on the bottom because the judicial system, as a place to seek justice, is not functioning properly and corruption is rampant, disregarding the poor and treating humans as worthless shoes. The priests choose wealth, positions, and compromise with sin. This happens due to an unclear calling that the LORD is summoning, where the Bible no longer serves as a benchmark for sermons, replaced by pleasing speeches for the listeners and compromising with sin. Through qualitative research methods and literature review in the book of Amos, as well as interviews, the results of the analysis indicate that the prophetic voice in the book of Amos produces a firm, uncompromising attitude, and courageously confronts challenges in proclaiming the prophetic voice, all of which serve as guidance for preachers in the era of Industry 5.0.</em></p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 SCRIPTA: Jurnal Teologi dan Pelayanan Kontekstual Makna Dan Nilai Pedagogis-Teologis Dalam Tradisi Waura Watu Pada Masyarakat Anakalang, Sumba Tengah 2023-05-03T10:15:29+08:00 Daud Saleh Luji Yohanis Sebu Kuala Simon Kasse Lanny Koroh <p><em>The title raised in this study is Pedagogical-Theological Meaning in the Waura Watu Tradition in the Anakalang Community, Central Sumba. The purpose of this study was to describe and analyze the dynamics of the perceptions of the Anakalang people and the pedagogical-theological meaning of the waura watu (stone pulling) grave tradition in the Anakalang community, Central Sumba. This type of research is qualitative research with in-depth interview techniques conducted on key informants, namely traditional leaders, traditional practitioners, religious leaders, and the organizers of the stone pulling ritual. The results of the study show that the tradition of pulling gravestones has an important meaning in the traditions of the Sumba people, especially to honor or respect their ancestors. Since hundreds of years ago until now. The grave stones in Anakalang have a function that cannot be replaced until now, even though graves are known to be made of cement. The erection of grave stones and the tradition of stone pulling are integrated into the daily life of the Anakalang people against a background of religious conceptions which are seen as the legacy of their ancestors which must be upheld, because they have pedagogical values, namely mutual cooperation, unity in society, kinship, culture and deep theological values. That is why the variety of stone-pulling culture in Sumba has penetrated the theoretical time period and has continued until now as a tradition.</em></p> 2023-05-28T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 SCRIPTA: Jurnal Teologi dan Pelayanan Kontekstual Memahami Kristologi Menurut Kolose 1:28 Untuk Membina Jemaat Melalui Model Partners in Learning 2023-05-03T09:14:53+08:00 Yustinus Hia <p><em>The purpose of this journal is to apply the principles of fostering church members through the teaching model of partners in learning where coaches and congregations emphasize the importance of relationships to build trust between the two parties. As was done by the Lord Jesus Himself in His ministry, namely building relationships with the people He served, this partner in learning model also applies the importance of acceptance and appreciation between personal mentors and the congregation. Some of the impacts of the partners in Learning model: (1) Involvement means increasing the partnership between tutors and students, (2) Awareness. This model helps mentors and students to develop metacognitive awareness and a growing identity, (3) Improvement. Learners are more active and responsible for the learning program that is being carried out. Partners in learning change the way of 'telling students about topics they need to know' to facilitating them to get the necessary information (inquiry). Partners in learning will produce students like Paul taught in Col. 1:28 namely growing towards maturity towards Christ.</em></p> 2023-05-28T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 SCRIPTA: Jurnal Teologi dan Pelayanan Kontekstual Kajian Eskatologis 1 Tesalonika 4:17 Mengungkap Fakta Pengangkatan 2023-05-03T09:54:24+08:00 Samuel Lengkong <p><em>Talking about the end times is a matter of hope for believers in Jesus Christ who are experiencing trouble and suffering so that later there will come a time of happiness, peace, and encouraging believers to always be ready to welcome the coming of Jesus Christ.
