Chapter Summary

This chapter shows how important the theme "Prophetic Vocation in the New Testament and Today" is for the present ecumenical movement. There is no doubt that since its beginning in the late 19th century the modern ecumenical movement has often fulfilled a prophetic vocation. Old and New Testament scholars react differently to the term prophecy. A reason for the importance of the study on prophecy is connected with its relevance for the much debated subject of the relationship between the Old and the New Testament. Since 1969 the strange silence on the prophetic vocation of the Church is being broken in the ecumenical movement. One reason for this awakening interest for prophecy is the growing charismatic movement among the Churches of most confessional traditions and in all continents. However, the particular event which started the present ecumenical discussion on prophecy was the creation of the "Programme to combat Racism".
