Reply To: After taking this course, in your own words, please define Hebraic leadership and what it means to you.

Samuel Vandeputte

Hebraic leadership starts with the eschatological positioning of ourselves in the “here but not yet”. We are in a reality where the Kingdom is present, but not fulfilled. We are, however, not supposed to passively await the coming of Christ. Instead, we should seek the welfare of the city, in whatever area we are called towards. If you are prone to being able to deal with power, for example, your calling is probably in the area of politics. A Hebraic leader never loses track of the bigger picture. His loyalties primarily lie with the Kingdom, which is both physical and spiritual. His focus is on Jerusalem. To me, Hebraic leadership an important lens to look at reality through. It positions us within the grand scheme of things, giving meaning, and translates the truth of the gospel into concrete, everyday action. The Hebraic worldview thus offers the orthodox paradigm for those belonging to the body of Christ.
