N.T. Wright on Evangelism

In his Colossians commentary, Wright asserts: 'The task of evangelism is therefore best understood as the proclamation that Jesus is already Lord, that in him God's new creation has broken into history, and that all people are therefore summoned to submit to him in love, worship and obedience. The logic of this message requires that those who announce it should be seeking to bring Christ's Lordship to bear on every area of human and worldly existence' (pp. 79-80).

I suggest that the prophets considered the Spirit to be the fullness of God and thus was to be obeyed as Lord. Such a philosophy was bound to diminish the importance of obeying the Jewish Law.
