Example text

Two arguments in the Malta Report’s model for consensus raise special questions. The first has to do with the notion of ‘the centre of the gospel’ and how it is used in the search for consensus. The second concerns the conformity of the ‘centre of the gospel’ and the ‘hierarchy of truths’. The concept of ‘the centre of the gospel’ is central to the developing Lutheran–Roman Catholic ecumenical method. The Malta Report describes the concept as a classically Lutheran concept, a Christological, hermeneutical principle normative to the interpretation of the scriptures.

Differences are attributed to the differing understandings of the gospel. The main goal of new, common contextualizations has two parts: firstly to find a theological agreement on the ‘gospel’ and secondly to find criteria for adequate interpretation/proclamation. The method makes a basic distinction between Jesus’ proclamation and the primitive kerygma on the one hand and the continuing proclamation of God’s salvific work on the other. This distinction is the main content of the acquired ‘far-reaching consensus’.

20–21, 23. 29. Ibid, 449–538. 30. CPCE 1973: 5. The Leuenberg Agreement also distinguishes between declaring a church fellowship and realizing it. Assenting to the reached agreement means ‘having a common understanding’. The process of realization refers to the reception, that is, translating the declaration to the lives of the churches.
