n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Christians and Muslims at the Cape of Good Hope : good hope for whom?

Volume 34, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0256-9507

At the heart of following Jesus as the Messiah, is the living hope for humankind based on the reconciliation between God and humanity through Jesus's death on the cross. However, the kind of Christianity practised at the Cape did not really present the Muslim slaves and exiles adequate opportunity to discover the hope Jesus Christ came to give to all who believe in Him. Non-Christians need to see the Message and example of Jesus the Messiah in the lives of Christians.
