The Wirkungsgeschichte of Matthew 28:16–20 in volkschristianisierende missiology
This article enters into the matter of the paradox particularism - universalism as a Matthaean issue in a theology of mission which aims at the christianiazation of the own people internally, but is also directed externally towards the nations. The emphasis is laid on the history of interpretation of Matthew 28:16–20 in the missiology of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Church, one of the three Afrikaans Churches in South Africa, and the missiology of the German pioneer, Gustav Warneck. Modern viewpoints of Matthaean scholars have also been considered. Matthew 28:16–20 does not have a gentile mission as such in mind and a volkskirchliche missiology can conditionally be validated. However, a national exclusive membership of a peoples' church is not the offset of these two suppositions.
