The Church as a new creation in Christ according to Paul’s bibliography

Languages of publication



The Church constitutes a unity with Christ and creates with Him quasi one person. It is fairly a new creation. The encyclical by Pius XII Mystici corporis refers to this tradition and underlines the union of Christ with his Church. To describe the reality of new creation the apostle was mainly appealing the Church as body of Christ, e.g. so called eschatology made and to the divinization of the human nature. This new creation is characterized by an inseparable unity of Christ with the Church and thereby sharing the life of the God by the people of God. What belongs to God is shared by us. This way the Church is like a quasi breastplate, through which the evil cannot spear and hurt us. He cannot spear , since the Church is Christ. One could here connote a picture of a child in mother’s womb: it constitutes a unity with her, is living her life and is safe within Her.
