This paper examines the biblical foundation of religious life in the context of the history of salvation. It briefly presents the God’s plan of salvation. As historical Israel failed their mission exile was the consequence of this failure. A consequence of the restoration of Israel will be the pilgrimage of the nations to Jerusalem. Jesus’ healing miracles point out that God is restoring his people and that is why he takes away all kind of sickness. The ancient Church knew that it had to be a sign of the truth of the Gospel in its entire existence however, when, after the “Milan edict” of Constantine (312/313 AD), the masses enter the Church, its early structure of “house Churches” was broken. Soon after the monastic movement began. With the monastic communities coming to existence, there was a chance that at least these religious house churches would preserve the community dimension of the Church and that they would continue to be a sign for the pagan society of how God wants his people to live.

Autor w swoim artykule dokonuje analizy biblijnej powstania życia konsekrowanego w świetle Bożego Planu Zbawienia. Autor analizuje poszczególne elementy tego planu od Abrahama poprzez Wyjście z Egiptu, Niewolę Babilońską oraz oczekiwanie i przyjście Jezusa Chrystusa. Wraz z nastaniem Kościoła realizuje się biblijna wizja egalitarnej wspólnoty opartej na zasadzie sprawiedliwości społecznej. Wzrost Kościoła zwłaszcza po Edykcie Mediolańskim doprowadził do zmian w strukturze Kościelnej i zatracie jej pierwotnego charakteru. W tym momencie powstały pierwsze wspólnoty monastyczne, które próbują zachować wspólnotową naturę Kościoła – symbolu prawdy i zbawienia.
