In this article I argue that behind the Kairos Document (KD) there is Luke's kairos or at least his view of it, which the kairos theologians did not take cognisance of Had they attempted an exegesis of Luke 19:41-44, whose spirit is partly reflected in the KD, it would have become clear that Luke's view of a kairos points back to the liberating moment of Jesus, yet forward to the consequences of missing that moment. Thus the kairos is intended for both supporters and opponents of Jesus. The new South Africa needs the positive dimension of the kairos which might provide a socio-political vision in the present context, hence the use of a contextual exegesis approach in this article.
