Liturgiese afleidings uit die kontinu teit en diskontinu teit van die pasga en die nagmaal
B de Klerk
Acta Theologica , 2011,
Abstract: Liturgical deductions based on the continuity and discontinuity of Passover Holy Communion The Service of the Word constitutes the climax and junction of the liturgy during the service, and the Communion is the crucial confirmation and appropriation of the core of Scripture, namely Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. The question is whether liturgic deductions for the purpose of enriching the celebration of the Holy Communion can result from a consideration of the continuity and the discontinuity of Passover and the Communion of our Lord. A literature study was employed in the investigation of this question. Passover is probably the one Old Testamentical festival that is of importance for research regarding the Holy Communion, precisely because Jesus consciously chose the time of Passover to instate the Communion. Liturgical deductions are amongst other things made regarding both festivals as celebration of the great acts of redemption in history, the eating of bread and the drinking of wine during both festivals, the eschatological elements in both festivals and the elements of commemoration, proclamation and expectation in both festivals. In each instance the continuity and discontinuity are considered as well. Article text in Afrikaans

Abstract: The act of personal faith of the Communicant The aim of this article is to determine the nature of the communicant’s act of faith in the Three Formulae of Unity. The main theses are: Holy communion is only instituted for the reborn to nourish their spiritual and heavenly life. The only food that can strengthen the new life is the exalted, living Christ, also in accordance with his human nature. The most important act which occurs during Holy Communion is Christ’s act of giving Himself. In fact the reborn partakes of the true Christ with the Holy Spirit and is thus nourished. Because Christ is in heaven, the communicant must raise his heart towards heaven to partake of Christ and to make Him his own.
Die Nagmaal en broodgebrek

Abstract: Holy Communion and want of bread In Africa one out of three people suffers from undernourishment or malnutrition. In this respect the topical question whether Holy Communion and acts of charity to those who suffer from hunger can be linked. Jesus not only endows Holy Communion with a personal dimension of faith, but also foregrounds this aspect in the care for those who suffer from hunger. New Testament material reveals that in the congregation of Jerusalem partaking of Holy Communion developed into mutual diaconal care. It is thus for this reason inter alia that Paul warns against misusing Holy Communion. This kind of misuse was evident because the rich partook of Christ’s meal of love without realising that they could only be part of this act of love by bestowing love themselves. In this article some practical guidelines to link the celebration of Holy Communion and the crisis of want of bread are discussed.
Die Heilige Gees en gebed in die erediens

Abstract: The Holy Spirit and prayer during the service Prayer in the worship service is pre-eminently a pneuma- tological reality: prayer is a gift from the Holy Spirit. The ques- tion that is addressed in this article is: Which decisive function does the Holy Spirit fulfil in the elements of the prayers in the worship service? Aspects that are discussed include the work of the Holy Spirit in the service events, especially in prayer and the essence of the service; the elements of the service prayer; the congregation’s participation in the service prayers; and the relationship between Scripture reading and preaching to service events. The Spirit works the most intimate relationship between the prayer believers and Christ, and so with God the Father, this is the trinitarian grounds for the service prayer. Prayer entails spiritually entering God’s holiness, directly addressing God, the confession of the believers and the most important part, their gratitude. In prayer it is above all about the honour of God. Elements of the worship service prayer include honour and awe for God (praise) and gratitude towards God (saying thanks), a realisation of sin and repentance (humiliation and confession of sin), invocation that can even be a lamentation, dependence and a Christian attitude of love (intercession). The relationship of Scripture reading, preaching, prayer, worked by the powerfull work of the Holy Spirit, is a causal relationship of community with God in Christ with his gathered congregation through revelation to confession and worship.
Liturgiese verdieping van die erediens op grond van kinders se deelname

Abstract: Liturgical deepening of worship service as a result of children’s participation What kind of deepening can be brought about for the congregation by children participating in worship service? Liturgical deepening can be stimulated by adults implementing new ways by which children can contribute to worship service. The presence of children should have an effect on the content and structuring of the liturgy, in the same way as the presence of the elderly and other adults ought to have. Children participating in worship service can contribute to discover a fresh, childlike sincerity in spirituality. For this reason children should not to be entertained; to the contrary, the affective, emotional and rational aspects of the entire congregation’s listening to the Word, appropriating it to themselves and responding to God, gain in depth by children’s participation. Another aspect of the liturgy by which children’s participation can heighten adults’ sensitivity is non-verbal communication. Furthermore, the preacher accommodating children in addition to adults in his preaching, is compelled to take his congregation on an exploring trip by which the admiration and worship of God will be the final results.
Lofliedere – basisteoretiese elemente uit Efesi rs 1:3-14

Abstract: Songs of praise – Basis-theoretical elements from Ephesians 1:3-14 The singing of new songs of praise is frequently introduced into the worship service without evaluating the contents of the songs properly. In this article Ephesians 1:3-14 is highlighted in an effort to ascertain whether basis-theoretical elements (measures for creating and evaluating) emerge from this pericope, and if they do, what these elements are. The structure and contents of Ephesians 1:13- 14 are studied to determine what basis-theoretical elements of the song of praise can be inferred from this pericope. Subsequently it is determined in what way the relation between dogma and doxa clarifies the investigation. The praise and worship movement is evaluated and an effort is made to summarize the basis-theoretical elements implied in Ephesians 1:13-14. In creating and evaluating praise songs a well-planned structure is necessary in considering elements like the refrain and the repetition of the most important themes. The praise song should celebrate the beauty of the Triune God and his great deeds. The praise song ought to have its origin in revelation and should interact with dogmatical elements. The praise song still plays an important role in the conservation and growth of the church. The praise song ought to be born from the struggle, pain and triumph of the church and not from motives of sentimentality and rabble-rousing.

Liturgiese identiteitsvorming as antwoord op die invloed van die verbruikerskultuur

Abstract: The formation of liturgical identity in response to the influence of a consumer culture Liturgy in South Africa is continually interacting with the Western cultural heritage on the one hand, and increasingly with African culture on the other hand. However, another powerful influence on the local liturgy springs from the so-called global consumer culture. A few characteristics of the latter are inter alia the following: The emphasis on what the “buyer”, the worshipper and “potential” worshipper prefer; a show business attitude resulting in transforming members of the congregation into spectators rather than participants. Furthermore the emphasis is on the pursuit of effectiveness and the utilisation of technology to attain it and the focus is specifically on the needs of the individual and not on those of the community. The continual formation of liturgical identity is the answer to the mainly detrimental cultural processes currently manifesting themselves. The point of departure in forming a cultural identity implies an in-depth study of the liturgical guidelines indicated in the Old and the New Testament and the historical development of liturgy, especially in the second, sixteenth and twentieth centuries. The following aspects should, however, also be taken into consideration: the contemporary characteristics of the local indigenous culture, beauty of God, relationship between liturgy and culture, multi-cultural enrichment of liturgy, missionary aim and eschatological focus of liturgy.
Jesus se gesaghebbende prediking as onderbou van sy opdrag om te gaan doop

Abstract: The authority of Jesus’ preaching and the baptism The question investigated in this article is what the relation is between the authority of the preaching of Jesus and the baptism that He instituted. The purpose is to reach practicetheoretical deductions regarding the effect what the authority of Jesus’ preaching might have on the baptism. Firstly, the focus is on the meaning of the authority of the preaching of Jesus, and consequently on the relation between the authority of Jesus’ preaching and the baptism based on Matthew 28:18-20. Lastly, the emphasis is on determining some practice-theoretical deductions of this for the baptism. Jesus’ preaching is founded in his unity with his Father, his mandate as Messenger and his self-testimony. Therefore, his preaching has absolute authority. His preaching works that which it proclaims, and demands faith from the listener. The fact that Jesus has sovereign power, gives Him the right to give the command to baptise. Baptism serves to reveal Christ’s divine glory. Through baptism Jesus sets his authority over the life of the baptised and the covenant parents, and as a result He can also demand unconditional obedience from them. His authority is enacted through preaching, because Jesus continues his authority in his preaching, even today.
