Abstract

This article aims to explain the hermeneutical concepts of minjung theology as a genuine Korean form of liberation theology in historical perspective: the concept of minjung as the oppressed masses; the Missio Dei as a missiological paradigm of minjung theology that understands redemption as covering all aspects of human life; event such as the Jesus event which has continuously happened as minjung’s socio-economic-political events in history, and the doctrine of the minjung messiah as an acting subject in history. It can be stated that the gospel is contextualised in an encounter with the socio-political injustice and the religious-cultural spirituality within the specific national context during the military dictatorships of the 1970s and the 1980s.
