In the ransom saying Jesus tells how the Church, the new people of God, is to be built by His death. Here, too, it becomes clear that the way which Jesus is going is diametrically opposed to the thinking and planning of the heart of man, that it brings with it an inversion of all accepted values. The Church is not a fruit upon the tree of history"; it is wholly and exclusively the creation of the Christ; it is God's deed.
