Abstract

The Bible is a tale of two cities – Babylon and Jerusalem. Contrary to Ellul, the city is not entirely the place of rebellion against God. It also has many positive functions in the Bible. Cities today can be understood in functional terms. Christianity succeeded in the Roman empire precisely because it was rooted in the cities, included everybody in the city and ministered to the poor there.
